Cape Fear Valley Health has created an updated online educational video about the new coronavirus and the health system's preparations for the disease.
The video details everything from signs and symptoms and who is at risk to who should be tested and how to call a physician office or the hospital for treatment.
Cape Fear Valley currently screens all patients for travel-related illnesses. Possibly infected patients are isolated, using dedicated negative pressure rooms and personal protective equipment, until testing can confirm infection.
The health system is also working closely with state and county health officials and disease experts to stay up to date on the disease. To learn more about coronavirus, visit www.cdc.gov/coronavirus or www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus
