There is a COVID hotline that is being operated at Geary Community Hospital. Director of Communications and Marketing Ashley King said it's intended to keep patients with COVID-19 out of the facility and get them tested for COVID first. "Anyone who is having symptoms with COVID, whether they see our providers or not at our hospital, are able to get tested if they're having symptoms."
Symptoms can range from a headache and fatigue to a cough. "Almost like you have a cold symptoms. So that's what we're seeing right now trending."
The number to call is 785-210-4214. Leave a message and your call will be returned. King stated that they are averaging about 100 calls per day. "You are either scheduled that day to be tested for COVID or that next morning so we have a pretty good turnaround time on it."
