You can call the Tillamook County Nurse Hotline, 503-842-3940, Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm. If needed, the nurse will give you the location of the Health Department’s mobile medical unit so you can be tested in the parking lot.

Remember the symptoms:
Although a fever technically is any body temperature above the normal of 98.6 F (37 C), in practice a person is usually not considered to have a significant fever until the temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever may occur with any type of infection or illness.
