► Starting Saturday, November 7th Family Care Associates will resume our walk-in clinic from 8-1030 a.m. Our walk-in clinic is for acute illness only on a first come, first serve basis. An acute illness is an illness with symptoms you have started experiencing within the past 24 hours and may include the following: sore throat, earache, sinuses, cough, or urinary symptoms.


►The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. We appreciate your cooperation during this quickly evolving situation. We request that you remain calm and continue to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID19.


Family Care Associates will NOT 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.

COVID Information

Isolation vs. Quarantine

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.

Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.
