COVID-19 TESTING INFORMATION
CommuniCare is offering limited COVID-19 Testing at all our locations. If you think you’ve been exposed to the virus, but are not experiencing any symptoms, please self-quarantine for 5 days, then continue to stay masked for another 5 days when around others. If you develop symptoms, please call and let our Service Representative know that you would like to schedule an appointment using our curbside services, to reduce potentially infecting others, and be seen at a location currently providing testing. Testing is done on a first-come, first-served basis and may be limited.
