Symptoms & Testing

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 or (coronavirus 2019) is a newly identified coronavirus caused by a virus called SARS-CoV 2.  It was first identified in China in December 2019 and has infected thousands of people around the world.

Coronaviruses are a type of virus that typically affect the respiratory tract of birds and mammals; humans included.  Doctors associate them with the common cold, bronchitis, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and now, COVID-19.

As we know, COVID-19 is much more severe than other common coronaviruses and can lead to hospitalization or even death.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The symptoms of COVID-19 are difficult to distinguish, as they present symptoms like other coronaviruses that are similar to the common cold.

People with confirmed cases have reported illnesses ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness and death.

Some or all of the following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:

    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Sore throat
    • Shortness of breath

MRH COVID-19 Response

MRH is currently in “incident command” mode; meaning that all decisions and preparation are being coordinated daily by senior administration with input from department managers, medical staff, and outside agencies.

Information is rapidly changing, and we are working diligently to make the best decisions with the information provided to us by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Maine.

We have an extensive plan we’re working through and implementing as necessary.

Please take the time to learn more about some of the actions we’ve taken to protect our community and prepare for COVID-19.
