Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Do not delay care out of fear of contracting COVID-19. We have implemented infection prevention measures to safely care for you during this time. Face masks are required for your safety and the safety of others.
We are testing for COVID-19 on an outpatient basis at our Drive-Up COVID-19, Strep, & Flu Testing on Main St and Spicerville Hwy. The Testing Center is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and operates on a first-come, first-served basis. A physician order is not necessary. Learn more at https://www.eatonrapidsmedicalcenter.org/news/ermc-opens-drive-up-covid-19-testing-center/.
With the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in our area, we are not allowing visitors unless they are absolutely necessary for the support of a patient, the visitor is necessary to drive a surgical patient home, or the patient is critical. Thank you for your cooperation as we keep our patients and staff safe!
With the exception of emergencies, all who enter must be screened first.
We’ve launched telehealth visits!
