Please read this statement from Dayton Fire regarding using emergency services. They are asking citizens to contact their primary care physicians, urgent care centers, or telemedicine for routine and other non-life threatening conditions, rather than calling 911 to request emergency services or going to emergency rooms. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms such as a cough or mild difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. Most people who get COVID-19 will have mild symptoms and will recover just fine at home.
