UHD Is Asking For Your Help
So We Do Not Overwhelm Our Resources

If you are sick with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, follow the steps below to help protect other people in your home and community:

    • * Stay home. People who are mildly ill with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 can recover at home.
    • * Separate yourself from others in your home; this is known as Home Isolation.
    • * Use separate bathrooms if possible.
    • * Stay away from others as much as possible.
    • * Avoid public transportation and ride sharing.
    • * Be sure to seek care if you feel worse or think it is an emergency, but call before you present to our facility.
    • Call us 24/7 at 507-526-3273.
    • *Those meeting testing criteria may be directed to a local testing site.

Again, if you are sick with mild symptoms or believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 but you are able to recover at home, please STAY HOME.

UHD thanks you for your support during this time. We will get through this together!

Call 507-526-3273 to schedule an appointment.
