According to the CDC, anyone contracting a respiratory illness shouldn’t assume it is novel coronavirus; it is far more likely to be a more common malady, such as seasonal influenza or the common cold. However, patients who traveled to China, or another area where COVID-19 has been identified as having community transmission, in the past 14 days, and currently have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, should immediately seek medical care and notify their medical provider of their travel history. Make sure to report your status to your supervisor.
For those serviced by the 377 MDG, please call 505-846-3200 first for instructions on reporting to the clinic.
For those not serviced by the 377 MDG, call the medical facility before arrival so the staff can take appropriate precautions. People who think they may have been exposed to the virus should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
For Sandia National Laboratories employees please call 505-844-4237.
