So far this year, Saint Luke's is seeing the highest number of respiratory virus testing that Saint Luke's has seen in at least 5 years. 

Dr. Marc Larsen, Saint Luke's Emergency Physician, urges people to use Saint Luke's Same Day Care options, which include Video Visit On-Demand, Convenient Care or Walk-In Clinics, and for severe flu-like symptoms, Urgent Care. The in-person options will be able to test for COVID-19, Influenza, and RSV.  If you struggle to breathe, begin to dehydrate from vomiting, or become confused, that's when it's time to go to the emergency department of your nearest hospital.
