Coronavirus and COVID-19

The world is facing an unprecedented medical crisis. Throughout this challenging time, your health and safety remain our top priority. Protect yourself and your loved ones with the help of this important information on COVID-19. Together, we can keep our communities healthy and strong.

Testing

Due to increased demand, we are not able to provide a COVID-19 test for all patients who request one. We follow the CDC and California Department of Public Health guidelines to ensure limited supply is reserved for those who need it most.

Exposure/positive test results

Adults under age 65 who do not have underlying health conditions or are not pregnant and have mild respiratory symptoms should assume they have COVID-19 and isolate accordingly.
If you have received a positive result from an at-home COVID-19 test, please isolate. You do not need another test to confirm this result. The state health order states at-home tests are acceptable for determining if you may stop isolating. Please check with your school, employer and others on their requirements.

Parents: If your child has been exposed at school but does not have symptoms, please follow your child’s school guidelines regarding testing. You do not need to contact your child’s doctor for another test.

How long to isolate

San Diego County has issued an updated health order that directs people who have or are likely to have COVID-19 to isolate for up to 10 days, regardless of vaccination status. This means you should isolate if you received a positive test for COVID-19 or have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 such as cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing, fatigue, fever or chills, muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea, or a doctor has said you are likely to have COVID-19.
