If you think that you or your child might be infected with Coronavirus, please contact the Arkansas Children’s Hospital 24 hour hotline at 1-800-743-3616. You will be given instructions on what to do regarding testing. You may also go online to UAMSHealth.com/healthnow and answer the online questions. We are not doing Coronavirus testing at our office. It is not currently recommended to test healthy individuals with mild disease. If your questions about Coronavirus testing are not answered, please call our office at 501-224-5437 for further help.
Do not come to our office for Coronavirus treatment. A nurse will be screening all visitors to the clinic. For mild symptoms, it is best to stay at home and use our common cold guidelines to treat this illness: Tylenol for fever, and extra fluids to prevent dehydration. Studies from China show that almost all young children fall into this category of mild disease. If your child develops severe Coronavirus disease symptoms such as shortness of breath, dehydration, confusion or feeling faint, like they might pass out, then call 911 or go to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital emergency room. Please call the ACH ER prior to arrival to tell them of your emergency and to get instructions on how to enter the emergency room.
