If you have a fever, a new cough or new shortness of breath, please contact your primary care physician's office before scheduling an appointment or going to any WellSpan facility.  If you do not have a primary care physician please call the coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Hotline at (855) 851-3641.

If you need to visit a WellSpan physician office or hospital, the Pennsylvania Department of Health now requires everyone entering the facility to wear a cloth face covering (if tolerated) while in the building, regardless of symptoms.
