COVID-19 ADVISORY

COVID-19 ADVISORY The Fort Riley and surrounding communities are seeing an increase in patients with COVID-19 symptoms. However, there have been no hospital admissions related to COVID-19 at Fort Riley. Symptoms of COVID, the common cold, and seasonal allergies can be similar. If you are concerned about any of the following symptoms, please see your primary care provider or go to the Emergency Room if the symptoms are severe. • Chest pain • Trouble breathing • Severe headache • Abdominal pain If you are concerned about your symptoms, you can also call your Medical Home provider and discuss further with the nurse or provider. We appreciate your cooperation in helping to keep our Emergency Department available for patients who need it most. Do not go to the Emergency Department for a routine COVID-19 test. The IACH Emergency Department is for patients with serious medical problems that require immediate attention. A routine COVID-19 test is not a medical emergency nor is it needed unless determined by your healthcare provider in assisting with treating your symptoms. If you have mild COVID-19 symptoms, you should stay home, isolate and recover. You can also get a COVID-19 test at a pharmacy in the community or other testing site if you feel you need to know if you have COVID. Stopping the spread of any upper respiratory virus as we move into the cold and flu season is of utmost importance. Please wear a mask while you have symptoms and stay home during the most critical part of your illness.

A Heartwarming Welcome Back to School at Seitz Elementary We're delighted to share a heartwarming moment that took place on August 11 as our IACH leaders and dedicated team members extended their support beyond our hospital walls. On the first day of school for the "Dragons" of Seitz Elementary School at Fort Riley, our team transformed into beacons of encouragement and smiles. With arms raised in high-fives and fist pumps, we created an atmosphere of excitement and unity, fostering a meaningful connection between healthcare and education. We extend our gratitude to the Seitz administration team for granting us the opportunity to make a positive impact on the young students.

Savoring Laughter: A Playful Moment at IACH Amidst the demands of our busy hospital environment, a delightful interlude of camaraderie took center stage on August 16. With a twist of creativity, our hospital staff turned the tables, and pies, on our esteemed senior leaders, including the hospital commander. Even within our serious and important roles, we believe in the value of sharing laughter and forging connections.
