UPMC COVID-19 Preparedness

Press Briefing March 20, 2020

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 20, 2020

Facts About COVID-19

How to Find Help

People most at risk of contracting COVID-19 are those who have traveled to places where person-to-person transmission of the virus is occurring, and/or those who have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

If you believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus and have no symptoms, you may contact your doctor for advice. Practice routine precautions such as social distancing.

If you have flu-like symptoms, including fever, headache, and cough, you may call your doctor or use UPMC AnywhereCare. A virtual care visit using telemedicine from home limits the spread of infection, and if needed, UPMC can guide you safely to the next care site. Due to heavy usage, you will experience a longer than usual wait time.

If you are experiencing severe symptoms such as trouble breathing, you should visit an emergency department in your community for immediate care. If you can, call ahead of time so they may prepare for your arrival and prevent the spread of any illness, but do not delay if you have severe breathing problems. Please note that UPMC Urgent Care locations are not able to test for or treat patients with COVID-19; they are open to treat minor illnesses and injuries.

COVID-19 Testing at UPMC

UPMC has developed a test for the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 — the virus that causes COVID-19 — and will use this test to diagnose select, symptomatic cases.

On March 17, UPMC will begin directing patients with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 to a specimen collection site in Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood.

The site is not open to the general public. Patients must have a physician referral approved by UPMC’s infection prevention team and an appointment to have their specimen collected for testing by either UPMC or public health authorities.
