COVID-19 Instructions


“I received a red X on my daily health screening app. What do I do now?” 


  • Monitor your symptoms and temperature. Even if you think your symptoms are due to something else, be cautious and avoid others until you are sure. 
  • If you think you have symptoms of COVID-19, call the Health Center at 512.863.1252 to speak to a nurse during business hours.  For after-hours COVID-19 testing, you may go to a testing center of your choice.

Advice for people with allergies or asthma:

  • If you have a history of seasonal allergies, take antihistamines (and/or nasal steroid sprays) daily to prevent symptoms.  Common allergy symptoms that can be confused for COVID-19 symptoms include sore or itchy throat, cough due to post-nasal drip, nasal congestion, runny nose, and mucus production.  While some people with allergies may “feel hot”, allergies should never cause a fever greater than 100.4.
  • If you have a history of asthma, follow your asthma action plan to keep your asthma symptoms under control.  Any worsening of your asthma symptoms, increased use of your inhaler, or other deviation from your normal should prompt you to call the Health Center.
