Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, the CDC shortened the recommended time for isolation for the public. People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if you are asymptomatic or your symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting other people. The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after.
- Face coverings are always required for all individuals entering our facilities. A face covering will be provided if you arrive without one. Children under the age of 2 years old are not required to wear a face covering.
- Please limit caregivers to one person for your in-person visit, if needed.
Please do not come to the health center:
If you recently tested positive for COVID-19 or was exposed to someone who recently tested positive for COVID-19.
If you have a fever, diarrhea, sore throat, running nose, recent loss of taste or smell or are feeling sick in general. Please speak with your primary care provider during a telehealth visit for a full assessment of your symptoms.
Individuals with COVID-19 are most likely to transmit infection in the first 5 days after symptoms start or after a positive test result.
The availability of at home rapid test has drastically reduced the demand for COVID-19 testing at our health center. We continue to perform COVID-19 testing for our patients by appointment on Mondays from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM at our Haverford Avenue Health Center only.
We administer the Moderna vaccine for anyone age 18 and older. First, second, third and fourth booster doses on Fridays between 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM.
