Immediate medical attention is required if you experience emergency warning signs for COVID-19. These include, but are not limited to:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- Unusual lethargy and disorientation
- Bluish lips or face
If you are experiencing any other symptoms that are concerning or severe, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department. Additional help and information is available by calling our 24/7 COVID-19 Hotline: 1-844-444-CV19 (1-844-444-2819).
You may request a physician to place an order for a COVID-19 test and schedule testing through Montefiore MyChart. If you already have a Montefiore MyChart account, please click this link and then login to your Montefiore MyChart account. Otherwise, you can visit mychart.montefiore.org to create an account. Once logged in, look for the "COVID-19 Testing" box and click to learn more. If a doctor determines that a test for COVID-19 is needed, it will be sent to a laboratory that is able to perform testing for COVID-19.
Remember, a test is not a treatment or a cure. If you have symptoms, stay home and maintain your distance from others. Double-down on hand washing and cleaning surfaces you frequently touch.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, including if you plan to be tested or are waiting for your results, you should self-quarantine. Even if your results are negative, if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and your doctor feels it is likely you have the disease, you should continue to self-quarantine for 7 days after the start of your symptoms, 72 hours after your fever resolves without fever-reducing medicines, and until your symptoms are significantly improved, whichever is longest.
