Coronavirus (COVID-19) FAQ's and General Guidelines to Follow

Where can I get tested for Coronavirus?

Supplies of available test kits are becoming more widely available.  If you live in the Greenlee County area and would like to be tested, you will need a Telehealth visit with a family medicine clinician and, if indicated, they will order a test for you which will be performed at our parking lot in your car.

If I’m not feeling well, should I go to the Emergency Room, to the doctor, or to an Urgent Care to be checked ?

Not necessarily. If you are experiencing severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing – you should seek care without delay. Older patients (age 60 and above) and individuals who have underlying medical conditions, or who are immunocompromised, should call their physician’s office early in the course of even a mild illness for guidance. Mildly ill patients are encouraged to contact their healthcare provider by phone for guidance or by Telehealth, who will instruct you how to proceed. Our 24-Hour Urgent Care Department can be reached by calling 928-865-7589, or 928-865-9184.

What should I do as a normal course of action to try to avoid becoming ill with COVID-19?
