Covid-19 Resouces

If you or someone you know needs health care services related to COVID-19, follow these steps:

  • Contact your physician to outline symptoms and discuss next steps. Testing can only occur with a physician referral at this point.
  • If you do not have a physician, call 211 to be referred to a community clinic or other resource that can help.
  • CDC Quarantine Guidelines: CDC updated their quarantine requirements: Previously, those in quarantine had to go 48 hours without a fever and without using fever-reducing medication. Now, patients have to go fever-free for 72 hours without fever-reducing medication. This applies to those currently under quarantine and those who may be quarantined in the future. In addition, before leaving isolation, a patient's other symptoms — including shortness of breath or a cough — must have improved and at least seven days must have passed from when the symptoms first appeared.

Health Insurance

Helpful Tips:

  • If you experienced a qualifying life event, such as losing your job or inability to keep your parent/employer’s insurance coverage, you may qualify for a special enrollment circumstance within 30 days and could be eligible for a plan through the Healthcare Marketplace. Visit www.healthcare.gov to learn more about your healthcare options.
  • If your income or household changed and you have coverage through the Marketplace, update the information online or call 1 (800) 318-2596 to get instructions on how to adjust your plan. By doing this, you may save money or even become eligible for free health insurance through Medicaid.
  • If you are undocumented or are waiting for your healthcare plan coverage’s approval, contact a local health community center to receive care.
