Why is Redirect Health's Virtual Primary Care visit different & better than traditional Telehealth?
Unlike with traditional Telehealth services, Redirect Health’s Virtual Primary Care (VPC) visits deliver the care and follow-up you deserve. Our providers will either have your medical history in front of them or get it fast so you get care that best suits YOUR medical needs. VPC visits also offer a streamlined, automatic follow-up protocol from our care logistics team.
Follow-up is critical for improving your care outcomes, and helps you stay compliant with your care plans. VPC is a more effective way to provide you with access to a provider over the phone with a focus on your TOTAL health needs and not just your 1-time visit. English & Spanish

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by a new virus called SARS-CoV-2. The most common symptoms of the disease are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Most people with COVID-19 will have mild disease, but some people will get sicker and may need to be hospitalized.
How do I know if I was exposed?
You generally need to be in close contact with a sick person to get infected. Close contact includes:
· Living in the same household as a sick person with COVID-19,
· Caring for a sick person with COVID-19,
· Being within 6 feet of a sick person with COVID-19 for about 10 minutes,
· Being in direct contact with secretions from a sick person with COVID-19 (e.g., being coughed on, kissing, sharing utensils, etc.)
If you have not been in close contact with a sick person with COVID-19, you are at low risk for infection. You can continue to go to work and school, but should monitor your health for 14 days since the contact and stay away from others if you get sick.
What to do if you were potentially exposed to someone with confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
If you think you have been exposed to someone with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, follow the scenarios below to monitor your health and avoid spreading the disease to others if you get sick.
What should I do if I was in close contact with someone with COVID-19 while they were ill but I am not sick?
You should monitor your health for fever, cough, and shortness of breath during the 14 days after the last day you were in close contact with the sick person with COVID-19.
You should not go to work or school, and should avoid public places for 14 days.
What should I do if I was in close contact with someone with COVID-19 and get sick?
If you get sick with fever, cough or shortness of breath (even if your symptoms are very mild), you likely have COVID-19. You should isolate yourself at home and away from other people.
Contact Redirect Health as soon as you can and we can guide you to the next steps. Often times that means self isolation, possibly with medications to control symptoms. If symptoms are flu-like, antibiotic therapy may be prescribed.
Testing for Coronavirus is not always indicated and supplies of testing are still limited.
