COVID-19 is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person and between people in close contact with one another. The virus is thought to spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. A health care provider can give you instructions for seeking care, including options for testing, while minimizing the risk of exposing others. Let's slow the spead on Cape Cod.

Take steps to lower your risk of getting sick with COVID-19. Watch the video for some actions you should do.
To prevent further spread of infection, do not go directly to your doctor’s office, urgent care or emergency centers - contact your primary care physician by phone first. Based on your symptoms, your doctor’s office will ask a series of questions about your health, travel and close contacts to confirm if you need to be tested.
If you are experiencing symptoms and do not have a primary care physician, call Cape Cod Hospital's dedicated call center at 508-862-5595 to be screened for COVID-19 testing with a Cape Cod Healthcare clinical provider via phone. If testing is required, the clinical provider will follow the same process of submitting the doctor’s order to the testing team and you will be called with a testing appointment time.
Please note: the call center line is open Monday-Friday from 8am-7pm and Saturday-Sunday from 8am-4pm
