As a platform that millions around the world count on for information, education, and guidance on the path to and through parenthood, Ovia Health is closely monitoring the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Parents and parents-to-be — who are already in life-changing stages — are experiencing even more stress and anxiety now, and they have more questions than ever about their health. We care deeply about the health and safety of our Ovia community, and we're taking action to help our members understand the impact of COVID-19.
Introducing the COVID-19 symptom tool
Ovia Health has launched a COVID-19 symptom tool,* informed by CDC guidelines, to help members monitor their health and assess their symptoms. The symptom tool is available in all of the Ovia Health solutions and can be taken regularly to assess symptoms. Based on an individual's results and location, Ovia Health will provide recommended guidance and direction to relevant local resources.
This tool is intended to be used by people who think they might have symptoms of COVID-19, by those who have been exposed to COVID-19, and by those concerned that they may have been exposed.
As a trusted resource for parents, pregnant women, and people trying to conceive, Ovia Health is uniquely positioned to help women and families during this time. We are continuously monitoring the latest news on COVID-19 and its impact on our community, and our team is working hard to identify new ways to provide information and support. In addition to the symptom tool, we've also created an information hub in the Ovia Health solutions with information about COVID-19 and what members in various life stages need to know.
We expect that many parents and soon-to-be parents have questions about ways COVID-19 will impact their families. Dr. Adam Wolfberg, OB-GYN and Chief Medical Officer at Ovia Health, answers pregnancy-related questions here.
Please note that right now the CDC is urging everyone to stay home and practice social distancing, even individuals who are not experiencing symptoms.
*This tool does not apply to people over the age of 60 who are already at heightened risk for COVID-19.
