COVID Update for Medical Patients
A message to our Holyoke and Chicopee Health Center Medical Patients:
Hospitals are filling up due to COVID 19 omicron surge and staffing shortages. Please DO NOT go to the hopsital for testing or minor symptoms. If you need a COVID Test, call (413) 420 -2200 to schedule a testing appointment. Come to our Walk-in Center for: cough, fever, sore throat, abdominal pain, minor cuts, rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, asthma, allergy symptoms or pain with peeing. Call (413)420-2200 for 24/7 nurse advice.
In order to keep our patients and staff, safe and healthy whenever possible we are changing scheduled in person appointments during the month of January to telehealth. If you currently have a scheduled appointment that the health center would like to change to telehealth you will be contacted by health center staff. Telehealth visits allow patients to stay in the comfort and safety of their home while still being able to talk with medical providers in real time to get the medical care they need. At this time we will not be scheduling new wellness or routine care visits until after February 14th.
