Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to ensure the health and safety of our community members, the St. Joseph Hospital Gala, scheduled for May 2, 2020, has been canceled in response to concerns about the coronavirus. Thank you for your support and understanding of this decision; it is greatly appreciated.
If you believe you or your family members may have been in contact with a person diagnosed with the virus, please call your health care provider prior to visiting the office to alert them of this potential exposure. If you are unable to reach your provider or don’t have one, call the New York State coronavirus hotline with questions or concerns about travel and symptoms at 1-888-364-3065. In addition, be aware of any respiratory symptoms or fever. If you have flu-like symptoms (fever, cough and shortness of breath), ask your health care provider for instructions.
Please know that New York State has directed all insurance carriers to cover the cost of testing for coronavirus without copays. Testing is done through swabbing the nose and throat and sending it to an authorized lab.
