*** Please note that case numbers may vary from internet sites. As more cases are diagnosed and people are traveling it takes a while for numbers to be tallied with the right jurisdictions in counties and States. Due the large volume of testing and the mobility of our citizens variance in case numbers is inevitable. Thank you, Melanie Hutton RN, MSN Administrator
The Cooper County Public Health Center
strongly encourages all citizens to wear a mask.
We encourage anyone that suspects you have COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 to call your healthcare provider before seeking care unless it is a life threating emergency.
It is important that every member of the community continue to follow the CDC basic hygiene preventative measures. These measures include avoiding contact with people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes, proper handwashing, cleaning frequently used surfaces, and staying home when sick.
The Cooper County Public Health Center has taken and will continue to take the necessary precautions to keep our community safe and will continue to diligently monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves by following the CDC guidelines to protect public health and limit spread of this infection.
- The Cooper County Public Health Center is providing limited testing per DHSS guidelines for Covid-19 by appointment only.
The process for obtaining Covid-19 medical testing is as follows:
- Individual needing testing MUST be preapproved by health center staff through phone interview approval. During the phone interview the individual must meet the following criteria:
- Meet medical criteria for testing.
- Must have transportation to the Cooper County Public Health Center.
Walk in face to face interviews will not be conducted. The purpose of phone interviews is to reduce the health center exposure to the medically ill. Phone interviews must be completed in advance. This is not a walk-in clinic. Testing will be done by appointment only, in a drive thru setting. Please call 660-882-2626 for eligibility interview.
