Update from NorthShore University HealthSystem

Safety Tips

NorthShore University HealthSystem reports that, as expected, the hospitals in the system are seeing a steady rise in COVID-19 testing and in confirmed cases. They are working with local governments and faith-based, service, and civic organizations to reach out to community members to check in on their health and provide information on when and how to seek testing and care. Those who have symptoms should be screened for testing. The following are symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Loss or decrease in the sense of smell

  • Loss or decrease of the sense of taste

  • Fever (temperature of 100 or higher)

  • Cough

  • Congestion

  • Runny nose

  • Sore throat

  • Shortness of breath

  • Flu-like body aches

If you or anyone in your household is experiencing even one of those symptoms, you are urged to be screened immediately to determine if you need testing. You can: 

  • Call 847-HEALTH9 (847-432-5849) and talk to a NorthShore clinical expert; or

  • Log onto NorthShoreConnect through the app on your mobile device or on the website (www.northshoreconnect.org/immediatecare).

NorthShore reports that their supply of PPE is currently sufficient and staff members, who are trained in proper PPE use, feel protected. The hospitals continue to accept financial, critical supply and other donations. Visit their website for information.
