March 16, 2020

The COVID-19 Coronavirus has caused many healthcare facilities to have long wait times in person as well as over the phone. Our team of trained medical professionals are here to help during this pandemic.

If you are experiencing symptoms from what you suspect to be COVID-19 and feel you need medical attention please call OnCallCare at 516-615-8586 to request a visit at your home.

According to the CDC the risk of exposure to COVID-19 to Americans is outlined below.

  • The immediate risk of being exposed to this virus is still low for most Americans, but as the outbreak expands, that risk will increase. Cases of COVID-19 and instances of community spread are being reported in a growing number of states.
  • People in places where ongoing community spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported are at elevated risk of exposure, with the level of risk dependent on the location.
  • Healthcare workers caring for patients with COVID-19 are at elevated risk of exposure.
  • Close contacts of persons with COVID-19 also are at elevated risk of exposure.
  • Travelers returning from affected international locations where community spread is occurring also are at elevated risk of exposure, with level of risk dependent on where they traveled.

The risk of severe illness, people who are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness, as reported by the CDC is outlined below.

  • Older adults, with risk increasing by age.
  • People who have serious chronic medical conditions like:
    Heart disease
    Diabetes
    Lung disease
