“At this time CareMount is able to obtain testing for Coronavirus only on a very limited basis. Since testing capacity is limited we can only test the highest risk patients. High risk patients have symptoms and are defined as elderly, those with chronic medical conditions such as COPD, diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, or definite exposure to a known case of Coronavirus.

Today, patients with mild cold or flu-like symptoms cannot be tested. We recognize that you would like to be tested for peace of mind but we cannot and will not test you for COVID-19. Please do not go to your doctor’s office or urgent care location for these

If your symptoms worsen to include fever for more than three days or shortness of breath/difficulty breathing and body aches, you should visit the nearest CareMount Urgent Care for evaluation and treatment.”
