• COVID-19: What's Up in Bethesda?

    First Thing's First...

    From Montgomery County:

    "If you think you are ill and need medical care, you should seek medical attention.  Call ahead before going so the provider can take precautions when you arrive.  Testing guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) change frequently."  Please visit their site for updates on their guidance about who should be tested.  

    Your physician or health care provider will assess your symptoms and determine if diagnostic testing for the COVID-19 virus is appropriate. If your health care provider suspects COVID-19, THEY will coordinate testing with a commercial lab or the State's public health laboratory. While some commercial labs have the ability to analyze and report results to the patient or provider who ordered testing, the labs currently only perform the analysis and DO NOT collect specimens directly from patients. If you would like to speak with a nurse please call 240-777-1755."

    Ok...Now we can talk about Bethesda
