The coronavirus is a community acquired infection that should have a community centered response. The CovidMD® Volunteer Taskforce is an example of a private-public sector collaboration to national service that delivers a grassroots virtual triaging system so that no person is left behind in getting the human support and care they need. #wereinthistogether

Hard surfaces can also host germs. Be sure to wipe down areas that are in contact with various people throughout the day.

Frequently Asked Questions
Fever, cough and shortness of breath
If your CHP provider believes the COVID-19 test is appropriate for you after your free virtual screening, they will direct you to the ER, a community testing site or set up a home testing visit to collect the specimen and send it to an appropriate lab. Other testing options may be made available once approved by the government.
Not yet. For your safety and the safety of our staff and patients, we would like you to first consult with one of our virtual providers. Virtual screenings are free of charge.
Results may take 3 to 6 days to process. However, due to the high demand, quicker testing options are coming down the pipeline. Once the results are in, you will receive text notification from myCovidMD with follow up instructions.
Our CHPs are here to reassure you and walk you through the next steps. Depending on your symptoms, you might be advised to go to the emergency room or self-quarantine at home. We will check in with you daily to monitor your progress.
We are closely aligning ourselves with the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health departments. Volunteers wear the proper protective equipment during home visits and wellness checks.
No. myCOVIDMD was created by the People for the People. Our mission is to reach and reassure every resident in every network through our Community Health Partners program. We partner with socially responsible Telemedicine platforms to bring this service to our vulnerable communities who need it most. If you do have insurance, it is important to know that The Governor of California recently announced insurance companies will be mandated to cover the cost of medically necessary screenings and testing for the coronavirus. This means patients may not have to pay copays, coinsurance or deductibles that apply to the coronavirus.
Our CHPs follow the free Coronavirus Assessment Tool directly from the CDC to systematically assess patients using the latest CDC criteria. Patients answer a series of relevant health questions to determine their risk of COVID-19. During the time of high alert, we feel it is critical to self-distance, but still have human-to-human interactions in order to address other non-medical related concerns, promote wellness and build a trusted community. This is why we don’t use Bots!
Our telemedicine doctors will follow up with you via a video visit or phone call to confirm your symptoms and coordinate further assessment based on local public health department guidelines.
Individuals who only partially meet the CDC criteria will still be followed by are telemedicine providers within 24 hours to follow up. You will be provided the most up-to-date CDC recommendations and explained how to monitor their symptoms.
You can sign up to join the emergency response efforts now by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up on the home page.
