Coronavirus & COVID-19

Feeling Sick? Before You Come to ER

Like hospitals across the country, we're seeing large numbers of people coming to the ER with COVID symptoms. To best serve our community, we're asking that you only come to the emergency department with severe symptoms. 

Reducing the number of visits to the ED will shorten wait times and help us provide the best care possible.

When NOT to Come to the ER

Please don't come to the emergency department with just:

  • The need for a COVID test
  • Mild COVID symptoms (cough, fever)
  • Non-urgent illness

When You SHOULD Come to the ER

Come to the emergency department or call 911 with serious, urgent health needs, like:

We're vaccinating adults and children 5 years of age and older. Find out about booster shots, third doses, and COVID-19 prevention.
