    If you are feeling sick, or have been near someone who you know has COVID-19, please call us before your visit. Your care team may give you advice over the phone or ask you to be seen at a different location.


    Keeping your hands clean is one way to stop the spread of illness.

    You will be asked to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer when you enter any CHA building.
