Lee Health Begins In-House Testing For COVID-19
We are happy to announce that we have started in-house testing for COVID-19 to provide faster results for our community. In-house testing is a valuable tool to help us test more specimens and gain a clearer picture of the spread in our community. Depending on specimen volume, we will also continue to use commercial labs to ensure we process all specimens as quickly as possible.
Use a Cloth Face Mask to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced recommendations that everyone, even people who feel healthy, wear a homemade cloth face mask in public settings. Lee Health is now placing homemade masks on our patients, as well as our patients’ support person in obstetrics and at Golisano Children’s Hospital.
We are accepting donations of homemade cloth face masks as well; please drop them off at the Lee Health Foundation office at 9800 S. HealthPark Dr., Suite 406. Please call us ahead at 343-6950, so someone can meet you. For instructions on how to make and safely sterilize cloth masks, click here.
