COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) and Your Care at Advance Community Health

Posted

With COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, cases being identified in the U.S. and now in Wake County, we understand that you may have questions. We recommend the CDC’s COVID-19 resource and FAQ page to answer general questions about how to protect yourself from exposure and prepare for any outbreaks.

If you are an Advance Community Health patient and are experiencing symptoms like cough, fever, sore throat and are concerned about a potential exposure, we ask that you do not present to an Advance Community Health medical office as this puts a larger number of people at risk. Please call us at 919-833-3111 and let patient representatives know that you would like to speak with a clinical team member to help identify your needs. 

For our Cary and Fuquay-Varina location patients, we are closed temporarily in order to reassign employees for consolidation of staff resources.

Again, if you are a patient and have any of the above symptoms, please do not come in. Please call us first at 919-833-3111.

DENTAL PATIENTS

Advance Community Health’s Dental Clinic will be closed for all procedures except for emergency evaluations. We are doing this to keep our patients and employees safe during this uncertain time and at the recommendation of the American Dental Association. If you are experiencing dental pain, please call us at 919-250-2930 to get an appointment for an evaluation. We will only perform limited emergency procedures at this time. If you have had an appointment cancelled, we will call you as soon as we resume normal business operations as we will not reschedule routine appointments at this time. We thank you for your understanding.

Have questions about COVID-19? You may call Wake County at 919-856-7044, visit their website here, or email covid19.questions@wakegov.com.

Student meals – The Wake County school system has worked with community groups to set up sites around the district where students can pick up meals to eat while schools are closed due to the coronavirus threat. Volunteers will be curbside at locations across the county to distribute food in sanitized food counters. The district said that identification is not required to pick up the food at the sites. Some sites are for students ages 18 and under. Others are open to anyone in the community. Please click here for meal pick-up sites information.
