COVID-19

Update as of 1/26/2021

With the recent events surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), our focus is on reducing exposure to the virus within our community. If you have had exposure to persons under investigation for COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms noted by the CDC, contact your healthcare provider by telephone to discuss your care. Your provider can advise you of the appropriate way to seek testing and/or treatment. By making that call, you may be limiting exposure to the COVID-19 virus for patients with chronic conditions who are at high risk for serious illness and who may be in your provider's waiting room.

The Affinity Walk-In Clinic offers COVID testing every day, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Rapid testing may be available (as supplies permit) to patients who are symptomatic or those who have had close contact exposure. There is no out of pocket expense for COVID testing, however, you should check with your insurance company to verify your cost-share responsibilities that may apply to your office visit or telemedicine visit.

At Affinity Health Group we are committed to the saftey of our patients and our providers. In an effort to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus, we are making changes to our day-to-day medical practice. The video below will help you to know what to expect at your next appointment.
