Continued vigilance is important:
Although we are past COVID-19 as a critical public health crisis, COVID-19 is still with us and remains a serious health topic that we all need to stay informed and vigilant about. To keep yourself, your family and loved ones, and your community safe and healthy, you should continue to prevent exposure to and spread of COVID-19.
Testing for COVID-19:
AdvantageCare Physicians conducts COVID testing for established patients only, by appointment, following a telehealth or office visit to assess the need for COVID testing. AdvantageCare Physicians does not offer travel-related testing or testing to return to work.
For easy access to COVID-19 testing, you may purchase at-home rapid tests at many retail locations or pharmacies, or online. Or, to find a testing site near you, call the New York State COVID-19 Hotline at 1-888-364-3065 or visit the HHS website.
COVID-19 vaccines and boosters:
AdvantageCare Physicians encourages everyone to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters. For COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters near you, visit the NYC Vaccine Finder website or consult the CDC’s comprehensive vaccine finder.
