Roosevelt Medical Center is closely monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic. In response to this crises, RMC has activated its’ Incident Command Team in an effort to evaluate, pre-plan and mitigate potential cases of COVID-19 in our area. We continue to receive daily updates and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) on mitigation efforts and guidelines.
Our overriding objective at all times is protecting the safety of our patients and staff while maintaining high-quality care at our facility. We will continue to update the community as new and updated information becomes available.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses, you should:
• Stay home if you’re sick,
• Avoid contact with sick people when possible,
• Cover your cough and sneezes with the crook of your elbow or a tissue
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth and wash your hands frequently
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
Call ahead to the clinic or hospital if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as a cough, fever or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread. Tell yourhealthcare professional about your recent travel or contact.
Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
