Vaccine Response from our MAM Community
Open season for vaccines presents advantages, new challenges for equal access
NAHC has a long history of commitment to the wellness of our community and we remain steadfast in our commitment during the current COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus) outbreak.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person in close contact (within 6 feet). This can happen through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Please note that this is an evolving situation. We will update this page as new information becomes available.
Accessing Care During Covid-19 Pandemic at NAHC
We’ve made some changes to our services in order to protect the health and safety of our community and to prevent possible exposure to COVID-19.
In an effort to slow the spread of this disease and prioritize the health of our community, we have implemented the following measures:
- Phone and front door screenings for potential COVID-19 exposure and symptoms. Possible COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, and loss of taste/smell. Screening includes a series of questions and temperature monitoring.
- Individuals presenting with symptoms will be asked to take additional precautions.
- All persons coming on-site to a NAHC facility will be screened (even if they were screened on the phone), must wash their hands and are required to wear a mask. Masks must cover the nose and mouth.
- Some groups and classes are offered virtually.
- We will be using telemedicine (phone appointments) when possible and clinically appropriate.
Medical services are being offered in-person or via telehealth (phone) and videohealth (video).
Members with appointments will be contacted by a staff member prior to or during their scheduled appointment time. Please note your provider may call from a blocked number.
If you have a fever, cough, sneezing and/or other flu-like symptoms or have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 (Coronavirus), please call or text us.

Older adults and those with underlying health conditions, such as heart or lung disease or diabetes, appear to have a higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19.
You can play a part in preventing the spread of this disease:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and do it often. Alcohol-based sanitizers also work. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or an elbow. Throw the tissue out and wash your hands afterward.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect commonly used surfaces daily (most common household disinfectants work).
