You isolate when you are sick or you have tested positive, even if you don’t have symptoms.
The severity of coronavirus symptoms can range from very mild to severe. People who are older or have existing medical conditions, such as heart disease, may be at higher risk of serious illness. This is like other respiratory illnesses, such as influenza.
It's important to call ahead of time rather than coming to a medical facility. Calling ahead directs you to the most appropriate care and allows precautions to protect yourself, other patients and healthcare providers.
We have the tools to fight COVID-19 and variants
- Vaccines remain the best public health measure to protect people from COVID-19, slow transmission, and reduce the likelihood of new variants emerging
- Masks offer protection against all variants
- Tests can tell you if you are currently infected with COVID-19
Protecting our patients
Throughout this pandemic, Oswego Health has taken every precaution to keep our staff, patients, and facilities safe. It is because of your diligence following established infectious disease prevention protocols that we have managed this pandemic and been able to care for our community.
We understand our community is eager to reopen visitation as visits from loved ones can promote patients’ physical and emotional well-being.
Effective Monday, November 8, 2021, Oswego Health will allow limited visitation back into our hospital, emergency department, and urgent cares. To view our visitation policy, please visit the visitor information page.
This is a reminder that the NYS mask mandate is still in effect for all healthcare settings. When arriving for your appointment we ask that all patients wear a surgical protective face mask as cloth masks or other face coverings are not permitted. Should you not have a surgical mask, one will be provided. Thank you for your understanding and compliance as we work together to keep our community safe.
