  • Avoid public places and events with large crowds to lower the chances of coming into contact with germs that could make you sick.

  • Stock up on a week or two of foods and drinks you like to have when you are sick like chicken noodle soup and hydrating drinks.
  • Keep cleaning supplies on hand, consider use of a bleach solution or alcohol wipes to clean and disinfect surfaces at home or work.

Visitor Policy Post Pandemic

Under NYS guidelines outlined by Gov. Cuomo, visitors will be allowed to return to Community Memorial Hospital under strict protocols outlined by the Hospital to protect all that enter our building and our Health Centers.

As a result, it is necessary for our Hospital and Health Centers to institute precautionary measures to ensure that our institutions are safe for our patients, their families, and friends, as well as our healthcare workers.  We have updated our visitor policy to reflect these precautionary measures. These may change at any time due to Covid-19 outbreaks.
