What You Need to Know

Your health and safety are our top priorities. That’s why we’ve created this page as a resource regarding COVID-19 information and related services and policies at Harrington HealthCare System facilities.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a disease caused by a new virus in the coronavirus family that began spreading in Wuhan, China in late 2019. The virus has now spread to many countries around the world, including the United States. While the risk for contracting COVID-19 in Massachusetts is currently low, it’s important to remain informed and to take reasonable steps to help prevent getting or spreading the disease.

Symptoms of this infection may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include:

  • Fever
  • Cough and shortness of breath, and
  • In severe cases, pneumonia (fluid in the lungs).

If you think that you are sick, take a look at the information from the CDC about what steps to take: ENGLISH | ESPAñOL

Call your health care provider should you experience difficulty breathing, chest discomfort, or any concerning symptoms. If your symptoms are severe, call 911 and inform the operator of your symptoms and that you may have COVID-19.
