Proudly Offering RSV Testing & Treatment in Henderson, NV
Are you or your child experiencing respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) symptoms? For babies, this might include fast and shallow breathing, difficulty breathing, coughing, lethargy, irritability, and poor feeding. For older children and adults, on the other hand, symptoms of a mild RSV infection often include sneezing, congestion, a runny nose, dry coughing, a sore throat, headache, and a low-grade fever (more serious cases may also cause a severe cough, wheezing, rapid breathing, difficulty breathing, and blue-tinged skin).
If you’ve noticed the signs of RSV, you can confidently entrust your care to the experienced providers at Jovive Health. We’re a 100% doctor-owned and -operated urgent care practice, and we proudly offer rapid RSV testing and treatment services for adults and children in Henderson, Nevada.
How Long Is RSV Contagious?
RSV is a highly contagious illness that’s commonly spread by breathing in airborne droplets, interacting with an infected individual, or touching a contaminated surface. But how long is RSV contagious, exactly? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people infected with RSV are typically contagious for three to eight days, but some infants and individuals with weakened immune systems may continue spreading the virus for up to four weeks.
The Convenient Choice for RSV Care
At Jovive Health, we understand that our patients lead exceptionally busy lives and that it can be hard for them to pencil in an appointment during the normal nine-to-five workday. With that in mind, we’ve chosen to offer RSV testing and treatment during extended hours at our Henderson, NV, office, located at 105 N Pecos Road, Suite 111. And while we offer same-day reservations, we’re also happy to accept walk-in visits.
