Arnot Health has established a special toll-free Helpline for members of its community who are exhibiting symptoms of the COVID-19 virus.

Please Note: ONLY call this line if you are experiencing COVID -19 type symptoms:

  • Fever of more than 100⁰F
  • New onset of cough
  • Shortness of breath or other respiratory symptoms
  • Body aches

If you are experiencing any of these COVID-19 type symptoms, you can call the Helpline 7 days a week, from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. at 1-800-952-2662.  Nurses and Medical Providers are available to assess your level of risk and help you determine whether to self-quarantine or, if medically indicated, seek care at the appropriate location.

Community members should continue to call their primary care provider’s office for all other routine medical care needs or questions. If you do not have a primary care provider, call Arnot’s Health on Demand phone line at (607) 737-4499 for assistance locating one.


We are welcoming fabric face masks from our community as we prepare for COVID-19

Orders for standard/disposable masks are on back-orders, due to both demand and supply chain issues. Other hospitals across the country are reporting the same
supply concerns.

According to the CDC, fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted. Prior to modern disposable masks, a washable fabric mask was standard use for hospitals. We will be able to sterilize these masks and use them repeatedly as needed. While it is less than ideal, we want to do our best to protect our staff and patients during this pandemic.

With so much information being circulated about Covid-19, the 2019 coronavirus, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and confused. Arnot Health is monitoring the situation closely and working with our partners in the community to keep residents informed. Several local and national authorities have compiled resources to share information
and they are available here. If you have concerns about your own health, please contact your primary care provider.
