YKHC is closely monitoring the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. We are working to keep our customers, employees and communities healthy. To prevent spread of the virus through our service area, we have instituted the following criteria for testing individuals for the novel coronavirus.
Testing will be offered to patients with the following:
New onset of any one of the following:
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Diminished sense of taste or smell
- Fever (measured or subjective)
- Muscle/joint aches
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
