THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE COVID-19? If you’re having difficulty breathing call ahead before going to an emergency room. If you’re not having difficulty breathing, you may have COVID-19 or the flu or something else. You may feel really awful, have a fever, body aches, cough, and respiratory symptoms, or you may not feel sick at all. Your provider can evaluate you if you schedule a telemedicine visit.

NO WALK-INS

**DRIVE THROUGH COVID-19 TESTING:

  • Monday through Friday late afternoons. Meet in the back parking lot, near the trash and recycle bins.
  • Appointment required!
  • All ages!
  • Masks required for each person in the car!
