LCO Clinic Running Low on Rapid Covid Test Kits

Submitted by Gary Girard

LCO Health Center Director

LCO Public Health Officer


The LCO Health Center is inundated with Covid-19 testing at this time. We are running low on our Rapid ABBOTT testing kits. We will be utilizing our Lab send out tests. We expect results in 2 to 3 days from Lab Corp. The Covid-19 Hotline is now open 24/7!  Their busiest hours are in the morning and at lunch time.  If you have Covid19 symptoms or have been directly exposed ( within 6 feet for more than 15 min.) to someone whom has tested positive please call the hotline at 715-934-4518.  They will schedule you for testing at the LCO Health Center.

Covid-19 Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

Fever or chills

Cough

Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Fatigue

Muscle or body aches

Headache

New loss of taste or smell

Sore throat

Congestion or runny nose

Nausea or vomiting

Diarrhea


Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

Trouble breathing

Persistent pain or pressure in the chest

New confusion

Inability to wake or stay awake

Bluish lips or face


Call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
