BCMH: Local Covid-19 Testing Options for the holiday weekend

With the holiday weekend approaching, we understand that testing for COVID-19 is in high demand, but extremely limited. We want to alert you that:

- Our emergency room should only be used for medical emergencies. BCMH does not provide COVID-19 testing in the ER for non-emergency patients.
- Family Care Clinic appointments for testing are completely full for the rest of this week. Schedulers can take your call until 5:00 pm today, 12/30.

- Family Care Clinics and scheduling will be closed for the New Year weekend on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

What you can do:
> Stay home if you are feeling sick.
> Please use our emergency room for medical emergencies only.
> Call Family Care Clinics at 660-200-3627 today to schedule the next available appointment for next week.
