What About Testing?
Banner (Platte County Memorial Hospital) does have tests. Please call before you go see them so you don’t expose others. They can screen you over the phone for symptoms and the criteria that is required for testing. They will guide you from there. If you are sick (with anything) stay home unless you are having a TRUE medical emergency.
Don’t be misinformed.
From Banner: If you believe you are exhibiting symptoms related to COVID-19 it is recommended you first contact your medical provider.
