Catch and treat the flu early! Within the first 72 hours of having flu symptoms, you should visit your doctor to shorten your sickness. We will get you tested and on a treatment plan quickly. Walk-ins welcome!

Do You Have the Flu?

People with the flu typically have fever, chills, cough, muscle aches, congestion, runny nose, headache and/or fatigue. If you experience these symptoms, see your doctor to get treated quickly!
The flu and cold have similar symptoms, so how do you know the difference? When you have the flu, your symptoms will come on sooner than you would with a cold and with greater intensity.
When you visit OneSource to get tested for the flu, we will get you in quickly to do a swab test. If you test positive, we will put a treatment plan in place and send you home to rest.
This varies, but typically a person is contagious 1 day prior to symptoms appearing, and you should stay home at least 24 hours after your fever is gone. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine. While sick, stay away from others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. If you must leave home, for example to get medical care, wear a facemask if you have one, or cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Wash your hands often to keep from spreading flu to others.
