  If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 please contact your healthcare provider for an evaluation.

  • If you experience any of these symptoms, please call your primary care provider or visit one of our urgent care locations and visit one of our Upper Respiratory Infection (URI) Clinics
  • If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, remember that it is an illness that is managed much like any other cold or flu. Stay home, drink plenty of fluids, get lots of rest and wash your hands often. Here are some guidelines for you and your family (Icon PDF).
  • If you are over 60, have underlying health conditions such as heart disease, lung disease or diabetes, have a weakened immune system or are pregnant, you are at higher risk.

What if I am ill with something else?

If you are sick with another viral infection and are not being tested, take care as you would for any other seasonal cold or flu. Drink plenty of fluids, get lots of rest, and wash your hands often.

If you need medical care, please call your healthcare provider.
