If you have symptoms or exposure to COVID-19:

If you or a family member have symptoms, or believe you may have been exposed to coronavirus, you should:

  • Remain home and call your primary care provider. Calling ahead helps to determine the most appropriate care.
  • Refrain from visiting hospital emergency departments, urgent care or outpatient clinics to avoid spreading the virus. If you need to visit the ANMC Emergency Department with symptoms, call ahead for procedures to limit exposure to others at (907) 729-1729.
  • If you need immediate medical care, call 911 or your local emergency responders.
  • Additional recommendations from the CDC here.

ANTHC and our staff at the Alaska Native Medical Center have precautions in place to protect our hospital community and the Alaska Tribal Health System from COVID-19. We are working with state and local public health officials to obtain and share the most current information.
