Coronavirus "COVID-19"

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Information:

For patients who are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath, Daviess Community Hospital advises to first call the COVID hotline at 812-254-2764 before seeking non-emergent medical attention. The medical professional answering the COVID hotline may direct the patient to the DCH Quick Care Clinic, located at 1805 S State Rd 57 in Washington. Patients who arrive at Quick Care are asked to remain in their vehicles and to call 812-254-7845 to speak with the clinic personnel. A clinic staff member will ask questions to determine appropriate screening, testing or treatment needed and instruct the patient on the next steps.

The DCH Quick Care Clinic is currently open Monday through Friday from 8am to 7pm. It is also open on Saturdays from 9am to 5pm and Sundays from 12pm to 4pm. This is the only DCH clinic where individuals with respiratory symptoms will be assessed and potentially tested for COVID-19.

As we continue to navigate COVID-19, it’s important that we continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations:

  • Practice social distancing: stay home if possible
  • Wash hands with soap & water for 20 seconds often; if hand washing is unavailable, use hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol)
  • Cover your coughs & sneezes with a tissue; then throw in trash
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Sanitize frequently touched surfaces and objects frequently
  • Avoid handshakes and ‘high-fives” to prevent the transmission of COVID-19
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
