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. Call to schedule a SICK or telemedicine visit. Sick Visits are limited to certain hours of the day currently. We can do a Covid test during your sick visit if needed.
TESTING FOR COVID-19
We are sorry that, due to the unprecedented need for appointments, we are no longer able to offer high volume vaccine clinics. You may need to go to a state-operated testing clinic or an urgent care center.
