Testing for COVID-19
If you are worried you may have COVID-19, isolate yourself within your home as quickly as possible and speak to your healthcare provider or local public health authority. Be sure to tell your local public health authority that you have IBD, and if you are on immunosuppressant medications.
Do not go to your doctor’s office or the emergency department (unless it is an emergency). If it is an emergency, phone 911 and inform them of your symptoms, travel history, that you have IBD, and that you are taking immunosuppressive medications.
