Tomah Health continues to work with Wisconsin and Monroe County Public Health Dept., and Region 4 Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition (HERC) in response to COVID-19.

Mildly ill patients are encouraged to stay home and contact their healthcare provider by phone for guidance about clinical management. Patients who have severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, should seek care immediately.

Reminder...

Due to limitations on testing supplies, Tomah Health does not currently provide COVID testing to patients that are not exhibiting symptoms. Testing is provided to symptomatic patients that are cared for in our Urgent Care and Emergency Departments.
Patients who are not exhibiting COVID symptoms but still wish to be tested should reach out to their primary physician or attend a community testing event.

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

 “Although we haven’t adopted a formal written policy, hospital administration and the board of directors have adopted the requirement that all patients must wear a mask for the entire time they’re in the building. This practice is based on recommendations from the CDC and the State Department of Health, and is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. If you refuse to comply with this requirement, you’re free to seek out other options for your healthcare.”
