Testing, Diagnosis and Treatment
The test for COVID-19 has limited quantities. St. Luke's is following the Current Testing Guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health.
If you do require testing, your doctor may take samples, including sputum, a nasal swab and a throat swab to send for testing.
Currently there is no antiviral medication recommended to treat COVID-19. Treatment is directed at relieving symptoms and may include pain relievers such as Tylenol, medicine to help cough symptoms, rest and fluid intake.
