COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Guidelines
If you have had close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or longer) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you should be tested 4 days after exposure to reduce the chance of a false negative test. Per CDC guidelines, you should self-isolate for 10 days after the exposure, even if you test negative for COVID-19. Community Health Center of Cape Cod offers COVID-19 testing for symptomatic and asymptomatic registered patients, and for unregistered asymptomatic patients. If you are having difficulty breathing or tightness in your chest, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

There are currently two vaccines that have been approved (Pfizer and Moderna) for emergency use and distribution has begun. We will keep Health Center patients updated as more information becomes available. The current vaccination timeline from the Department of Public Health is as follows:
