Great River Health has established a 24-hour public call center to provide
answers to questions about COVID-19 and direct callers to health system
resources. The telephone numbers are 800-871-3313, toll-free, or 319-768-1009.
The call center is staffed by registered nurses who can answer questions
about respiratory symptoms and potential exposure to the illness.
Callers who have a cough or difficulty breathing and a fever
may be referred to the health system’s new Respiratory Center at Family
Medicine-Great River Medical Center, 1201 W. Agency Rd., West Burlington.
Appointments are required. Hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday,
and 9 am. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Respiratory Center appointments also can be made through other Great River
Medical Center and Great River Health primary-care clinics.
Family Medicine patients who need appointments for other acute symptoms
will be seen by a provider at Family Medicine, Mercy.
Patients with symptoms that are tolerable are encouraged to remain at home
and self-quarantine for at least seven days or until they are fever-free
without medication and have no symptoms for three days.
