The Queen's Health Systems: Our highest priority at The Queen's Health Systems is the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors, physicians and staff. It's important to us to keep you informed during this period of COVID-19 concern.
COVID-19 is spread through coughing and sneezing, close personal contact such as touching or shaking hands, or contact with an infected object or surface. Symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
Most people with these symptoms have the common cold or influenza, and not COVID-19. If you’re not feeling well and you’re able to manage your symptoms, stay home and self-isolate.
If you start feeling worse, need a higher level of care, have recently traveled to a high-risk country, or have been exposed to a patient with COVID-19, call one of our hospitals or clinics first – before you arrive – so we can take precautions and initiate care for you immediately upon your arrival.
As always, if you are experiencing an emergency, call 9-1-1.
Queen’s has created a COVID-19 task force to proactively ensure the highest level of patient care and hospital safety. Our staff members have been trained in the latest CDC safety protocols, and have the necessary equipment and training to safely treat COVID-19 patients.
