COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Symptoms can range from mild (or even no symptoms) to severe. Adults and older people with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and chronic respiratory disease are more likely to develop serious illness, while children tend to develop milder illness. Researchers are learning more and more about how to prevent and treat COVID-19 every day.

The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections, is through vaccination and early detection of the virus. BCHP is proud to offer rapid COVID-19 PCR testing at these locations, and vaccination at our primary care sites.
