- Call your nearest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). If you feel you may have COVID-19, be sure to disclose that when you call to obtain an appointment. FQHCs are community-based health care providers that receive federal funds to provide needed health services in communities across the state.
- If you are not able to be seen at an FQCH, call your local health department. Free and charitable clinics may also be able to provide assistance. A map of these resources, including contact information, is provided by the Office of Rural Health.
- If you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or call ahead then go to the Emergency Room.
