Family Care Associates will NOT be accepting walk-ins or have late night hours until further notice.

In an effort to protect our healthcare providers and staff, we ask that patients with a fever, cough or shortness of breath call our office in advance. Do NOT report to the office or the ER without calling ahead of time.

Our team of nurses will triage symptoms to determine the best course of action. Individuals that are experiencing only mild symptoms may be asked to self quarantine at home.

Patient's with respiratory symptoms will be triaged in the back entrance of the building. Patient's that require further assessment will immediately be given a mask to wear before entering the building.

Please keep in mind that resources and various testing may be limited. Not all individuals experiencing symptoms will need further testing. Testing will be determined by age, past medical history and severity of symptoms.

Social distancing is of utmost importance. Please stay home when at all possible.

For generalized questions about COVID 19, please call IDPA at 1-800-889-3931. You may also visit our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/fcaeffingham/?eid=ARDK5Owmj7e0uaL_uClCUUVauylVWR-h1sBJnv8TuX36JrsuWMyfDqVFVc3SKgtbPiop5o2VnnFxvC01

COVID Information

Current CDC recommendation for persons with COVID-19 illness is to isolate for 10 days after symptom onset AND resolution of fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and with improvement of other symptoms. Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from people who are not infected. People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others.
