Jefferson Healthcare – COVID-19 Testing & Nurse Consult Line
PORT TOWNSEND, WA, July 30, 2021 – In response to the growing prevalence of COVID-19, Jefferson Healthcare has relaunched the dedicated COVID-19 Nurse Consult Line (360.344.3094). Nurses will follow up with patients within 24-48 hours to triage symptoms and schedule testing at the Jefferson Healthcare Drive-Thru Testing Station, open 7 days a week.
Individuals who are experiencing severe respiratory symptoms should go to the Emergency Department. We discourage individuals with mild respiratory and cold symptoms from seeking care at the Emergency Department or Express Clinic prior to consulting with the Nurse Consult Line. Triage through the Nurse Consult Line avoids unnecessary wait time and minimizes exposure to others.
All patients, visitors, and employees of Jefferson Healthcare continue to be universally masked with hospital-issued masks and everyone is temperature screened before entering the buildings.
