    - If you are having a medical emergency please visit the closest emergency room or contact 911. If possible, please notify the emergency room that you are on your way so they can prepare for your arrival. Emergency room staff and physicians will screen patients and make a determination if testing for COVID-19 is necessary based on guidelines by the CDC.
