What To Do If You Are Sick


  • If you are mildly ill, you should restrict activities outside your home and manage your symptoms.
  • Visit the Doctor’s Office Virtually: Non-emergency health care needs may not require a trip to the doctor’s office. With Atlantic Health System’s Virtual Visit telehealth service, you’ll have 24/7 access to board-certified physicians online for consultations, diagnosis and treatment without having to leave your home or schedule an appointment. Follow-up care can take place with your primary care physician.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms and think you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your health care provider for advice .
  • If your symptoms are worsening, seek medical attention. Call your health care provider before you visit so they can take proper precautions to limit the spread to others.
