Symbol medical professionals will treat COVID-19 suspects according to Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) guidelines. Patients will be sent home with a work absence excuse and instructions to distance yourself from others for the next few days. It will be the patient's responsibility to contact workplace supervisors, any family members or associates to inform them that you will be self-isolating for the next few days.
Dismissed patients will be instructed to go home, stay home, and remain at least 6 feet away from other people. They will be reminded to wash hands thoroughly and frequently, clean surfaces touched, cover coughs, and dispose of single-use tissues after use. This form of voluntary self-isolation is currently the CDC's preferred method of containing COVID-19 suspects until further facts of infection are established. These standards may change as the science evolves.
