AdvantageCare Physicians conducts COVID testing for established patients only, by appointment, following a telehealth or office visit to assess the need for COVID testing. COVID testing may also be required prior to some types of care or services.

AdvantageCare Physicians does not offer travel-related testing or testing to return to work.


For up-to-date news and information about the coronavirus pandemic, we recommend the following websites:
-The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): COVID-19 in the U.S.
-New York State Department of Health: COVID-19 in New York State.

If you’re not immunized, you’re not fully protected against COVID-19. To find locations near you offering COVID-19 vaccinations, visit the NY State or NYC websites, or consult the CDC’s comprehensive vaccine finder.

You may purchase at-home rapid tests at many retail locations or pharmacies*. Or, visit the United States Postal Service website to order free tests.

 *Consult your health plan about reimbursement.

Coronavirus symptoms may vary from person to person. The severity and duration of symptoms may be based on your overall health, whether you’ve been vaccinated or not, or other factors. Visit the CDC website for the most up-to-date list of symptoms and when you should seek immediate medical attention.

While certain groups, such as older adults, babies, and those with underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems, are at greater risk of illness associated with COVID-19, it is important that all eligible people are vaccinated.

For children ages 0-21 who have previously had COVID-19, there have been reports of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). Symptoms of MIS-C include:

-Confirmed or potential past exposure to COVID-19

-Persistent fever (3-5 days)

-Rash or signs of inflammation (particularly around mouth, hands, and feet)

-Red eyes

-Swollen glands

-Abdominal pain, vomiting, or diarrhea

Immunization is the best way to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19. For additional protection, wash your hands frequently and continue following all recommended guidelines around mask-wearing, social distancing, and hygiene.

Our offices are taking special precautions to prevent risk and protect our patients, providers, and staff.
