Resources and Helpful Tips







If you think you have a virus...

It is recommended that persons experiencing flu-like symptoms including fever, cough or shortness of breath and have traveled recently should contact their primary care physician by phone before visiting their physician's office, an urgent care location or a hospital emergency room. Your physician will be able to help you make the decision of what action to take.

Testing for COVID-19

Currently, all testing for COVID-19 is performed by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Testing is done only under specific circumstances. Only those who meet all of the following criteria should request testing: 1) Recently traveled to a country with a CDC Level 2 or Level 3 Travel Health Notice for COVID-19, 2) experiencing fever, and 3) experiencing respiratory symptoms. Cape Fear Valley Health expects to begin testing in the coming days, but again only for patients who meet criteria. Individuals who meet all three criteria should contact their doctor or local health department. A clinician and public health officials will decide if a COVID-19 test is appropriate.

Hand Washing is Key

While it seems very simple, we strongly encourage you and your family members to practice good hand hygiene with an emphasis on washing your hands frequently with soap and water. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible.
