Important message regarding the Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19
If individuals have a respiratory illness including cough and fever and/or believe they may have been exposed to or infected with the novel coronavirus, they should call ahead to the emergency room, urgent care clinic or doctor’s office before arriving. This will ensure health care staff are prepared for the individual’s arrival, and they will provide instructions to limit exposure to others.
