Remember to take everyday preventive actions that are always recommended to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.

If You Feel Sick

If you feel sick with fever/chills, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, other flu-like symptoms or were in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the 14 days before you began to feel sick, seek medical care. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your possible exposure, recent travel and your symptoms. 

After being seen by medical professionals for a COVID diagnosis, follow these COVID-19 care guidelines.

Stay Informed

Our hospitals are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and are in close contact with local health authorities. For more information for the public and health care providers on coronavirus, please visit the CDC website.

Coronavirus testing

Our health care providers are in constant communication with local health officials on coronavirus testing. CHI Health offers several ways to get tested:

Additional information on testing is available through the CDC website or TestIowa.

Test pricing

In accordance with provisions in the CARES Act, the “cash” price for COVID-19 testing is available here. The actual price a patient may pay will likely be lower, as this price does not take into account insurance coverage or financial assistance a patient may be eligible for. Where testing is available at our own facilities it can typically be provided at a reduced cost. If in-house testing is not available, testing may be performed by an outside lab which sets the price for its test. These cash prices are only for the COVID-19 diagnostic testing itself and are not inclusive of the diagnosis and/or treatment of other medical conditions. Charges are continually reviewed and subject to change.

Mail Order Prescription Services

To help avoid crowded areas, CHI Health Pharmacies can mail you your prescriptions at no additional cost. If you currently use a CHI Health pharmacy, just call in to request your medications be shipped to you.

If you are not a current CHI Health Pharmacy patient, call our Midlands location at (402) 827-4200 to request a transfer from your current pharmacy to ours, and have your prescriptions mailed to you.
