CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): 



Please be advised, effective immediately, we are prioritizing
1) sick/urgent visits and
2) immunizations for children under 2 years old.

Please call ahead before your arrival. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Who should get tested for COVID-19?

• Testing should only be used for people who need to be hospitalized for severe illness like pneumonia. This protects health care workers and may affect treatment options.
• At this point, if you have symptoms, assume that you have COVID-19. A positive test will not change what a doctor tells you to do to get better. The best course of action is to stay at home.
• If you are only mildly ill, you can save the life of another New Yorker by staying home to ensure health care resources go to those who need them the most. Take care of others by staying home.

 

What should I do if I get sick with COVID-19 symptoms?


• If you have mild to moderate symptoms, stay home. You should not seek medical care or try to get tested. By staying home, you reduce the possibility of transmission to others, including health care workers who are needed to care for the more seriously ill.
• If you are over 50 years old or have chronic conditions, consult your doctor. They may want to monitor you more closely.
• If your symptoms do not go away or get worse after three to four days, consult with your doctor.
• Stay home for at least seven days after your symptoms started. Make sure that you have been fever-free for three days without the use of fever-reducing drugs, such as Tylenol and ibuprofen. Also, make sure that your cough and sore throat are better before you go back to your routine. If you never had a fever, stay at home for at least three days after your symptoms start improving.
• If you go out to see your doctor, wear a face mask if available.If possible, take a private car, sit in the back seat and roll down the window.
• If you have more severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing and very high fever, go to an emergency department. Call 911 if you need help right away.

 

What should I do if I’m sick at home? Assume you have COVID-19!


• Do not leave your home except to get medical care or to address other essential needs, such as getting groceries.
• Do not go to school or to work.
• Do not take public transportation. Do not use ride shares or taxis.
• Separate yourself from others in your home, as much as possible. Stay in a different room. Use a separate bathroom if available. If you share a bathroom, disinfect frequently touched surfaces after each use.
• Wear a face mask if available when you need to be in areas with others.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when sneezing or coughing. Do not use your hands to cover your sneeze or cough. Immediately throw out tissues and wash your hands afterward.
• Clean surfaces that are frequently touched, such as counters, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures and phones. Clean them after each use or at least once every day. Use a household cleaning spray or wipe.
• Do not share personal household items, such as glasses, cups, eating utensils and towels.
• Do not have visitors come to your home.

¿Quién debería hacerse la prueba de COVID-19?

• Las pruebas solo deben utilizarse para personas que necesitan ser hospitalizadas por enfermedades graves como la neumonía. Esto protege a los trabajadores de la salud y puede afectar a las opciones de tratamiento.
• En este momento, si tiene síntomas, asuma que tiene COVID-19. Una prueba positiva no cambiará lo que el médico le diga que haga para mejorar su salud. El mejor curso de acción es quedarse en casa.
• Si solo está ligeramente enfermo, puede salvar la vida de otro neoyorquino quedándose en su casa para asegurarse de que los recursos de atención de salud lleguen a quienes más los necesitan. Cuide de los demás quedándose en casa.

¿Qué debo hacer si me enfermo con los síntomas de COVID-19?

• Si tiene síntomas leves o moderados, quédese en casa. No debe buscar atención médica ni tratar de hacerse la prueba. Al quedarse en casa, reduce la posibilidad de transmisión a otros, incluyendo a los trabajadores de la salud que son necesarios para cuidar a los enfermos más graves.
• Si tiene más de 50 años o tiene condiciones crónicas, consulte a su médico. Es posible que quiera vigilarle más de cerca.
• Si sus síntomas no desaparecen o empeoran después de tres o cuatro días, consulte con su médico.
• Quédese en casa durante al menos siete días después de la aparición de los síntomas. Asegúrese de no tener fiebre durante tres días sin haber usado medicamentos antifebriles, como Tylenol e ibuprofeno. Además, asegúrese de que su tos y su dolor de garganta mejoren antes de volver a su rutina. Si no ha tenido fiebre, quédese en casa durante al menos tres días después de que sus síntomas empiecen a mejorar.
• Si sale a ver a su médico, utilice una mascarilla si la tiene. Si es posible, tome un coche privado, siéntese en el asiento trasero y baje la ventanilla.
• Si tiene síntomas más graves, como dificultad para respirar y fiebre muy alta, acuda a un servicio de urgencias. Llame al 911 si necesita ayuda de inmediato.

¿Qué debo hacer si estoy enfermo en casa? ¡Asuma que tiene COVID-19!


• No salga de su casa excepto para recibir atención médica o para atender otras necesidades esenciales, como hacer la compra.
• No vaya a la escuela o al trabajo.
• No tome el transporte público. No utilice transporte compartido o taxis.
• Sepárese de los demás en su casa, tanto como sea posible. Permanezca en un cuarto diferente. Use un baño separado si es posible. Si comparten un baño, desinfecte las superficies que se tocan con frecuencia después de cada uso.
• Use una mascarilla si está disponible cuando necesite estar en áreas con otras personas.
• Lávese las manos a menudo con agua y jabón durante al menos 20 segundos.
• Cúbrase la boca y la nariz con un pañuelo de papel o con la manga al estornudar o toser. No use sus manos para cubrir su estornudo o tos. Deseche de inmediato los pañuelos de papel y lávese las manos.
• Limpie las superficies que se tocan con frecuencia, como los mostradores, las manijas de las puertas, los accesorios del baño y los teléfonos. Límpielos después de cada uso o al menos una vez al día. Utilice un aerosol o una toallita de limpieza doméstica.
• No comparta artículos personales de la casa, como vasos, tazas, utensilios para comer y toallas.
• No reciba visitas en su casa.
