Presumptive positive cases of the Coronavirus COVID-19 in South Carolina has prompted McLeod Health to offer free virtual screening through its McLeod Telehealth App.
Anyone experiencing fever, sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath, can access a virtual screening with a trained medical professional, a news release from the Florence based healthcare system said.
“This will allow our community to receive a screening for COVID-19 and the appropriate care without exposing themselves or others to further sickness,” the news release said. “This will help us to prevent the spread of infection.”
