COVID-19

COVID-19 and You

Navigating life during a pandemic is hard. And making healthcare decisions may feel overwhelming. We're here to help. NHC offers COVID-19 testing, vaccines, boosters and resources to help you and your family stay safe and healthy.

New Mask Guidelines from the CDC

The now CDC recommends switching from fabric masks to high-grade medical masks, such as the KN94, KF95, orN95, which offer greater protection with a tighter fit. For even more protection, you can layer a fabric mask on top of a medical mask, but wearing two medical masks are not recommended.

COVID-19 Vaccines

NHC offers COVID-19 vaccines and boosters. Protect yourself and your community by getting vaccinated if you are able.

COVID-19 Testing

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please call to request an appointment, and a care team member will help schedule a telephone, video, or in-person visit.

COVID-19 Resources

We know our community members have many questions about the COVID-19 virus, vaccines and where to get more information. Find the information you need.

COVID-19 Hotline

Patients and community members can call NHC's COVID-19 Hotline to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination, booster, third dose, or testing appointment.

Keeping You Safe

We have a number of measures in place to keep patients, visitors, and staff safe in NHC clinics:

  • Daily temperature and symptom checks for staff, patients, and guests
  • All patients must wear a mask while at NHC clinics
  • Patients ages 18 and younger may be accompanied by one parent or guardian; no guests or guardians for patients age 18+ unless medically necessary.
  • Extra time between appointments to allow for added cleaning and disinfecting
  • Reduction of physical contact between staff and patients
  • Staff wear masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) when caring for patients; these include gowns, face shields, and gloves when needed.
