Discovery: I would suggest completing the Covid assessment on the Discovery Health website. If you are flagged as potentially having covid, you will be diverted to a virtual consult with a Doctor. You will be assessed and referred for testing if necessary .

Test: As a health care provider you must have a supervisor at your facility that can inform you about policies and how to get testing.. In the meantime practice isolation for 14 days. In addition, If test is positive, call your MD & you must be without symptoms for 3 days toward end of isolation . Keep hydrated,take acetaminophen. I recommend Vit D, zinc.
