COVID-19 FAQs for Patients:
How can I prevent COVID-19?
Public health officials want to make it clear to patients that routine hygiene and general disease prevention are crucial to lowering your risk of getting a coronavirus infection. In fact, the CDC outlined the key prevention methods which are similar to the flu and common cold Here are a few more specific prevention strategies for patients:
“As with other respiratory viruses, we recommend people protect themselves and others by practicing everyday actions:
Clean hands frequently with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub.
Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing.
Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
Stay home if you are sick.
Get an annual flu vaccine if you have not had one.
Practice social distancing to avoid the spread whenever you have to leave your household.
What should I know about the COVID-19 Vaccine?
The New Jersey Department of Public Health provides frequent updates related to COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, access, and information. The most important thing to understand is that the vaccine is a safe and effective tool in protecting patients from the virus.
Follow updates from your local health department and providers to learn the facts about the vaccine. If you have any questions reach out to the Department of Health or follow their online updates each day to learn more.
We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.
That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact us for the details.
