What if you think you have a respiratory illness? 

  • If you are sick and have mild symptoms, stay home and self-isolate as much as possible.
  • If you are sick enough that you would normally go to the doctor, call ahead to 406-446-2345 or 877-404-9442 for instructions.
  • If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.
  • To avoid spreading respiratory illnesses, if possible, please do not show up at the Emergency Department, Clinic, SameDay Care or a testing site without calling in advance for instructions.
