Please note:

Since the COVID-19 virus can live in your body for up to 3 months, it is not recommend that you take another COVID-19 test until 3 months AFTER your first positive test. You do not need a negative test in order to return to work.

 

You should schedule a second COVID-19 test if you develop new COVID-19 symptoms after you started to feel better

We are committed to providing you high-quality health care services in a safe manner. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or tested positive, please contact our appointment center to schedule a video or telephone appointment.

Your medical provider will provide you with the best care while you self- isolate at home. It is important to be honest about your symptoms or exposure to COVID-19 so that we can protect the health of our staff, patients and you.

The ACTIV-2 Study is a clinical trial that tests different medicines to see if they are safe and can help treat adults diagnosed with COVID-19. The study is seeking volunteers who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last seven days and are showing symptoms. ACTIV-2 is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and lasts roughly six months.

 

NOTE: NEVHC health centers are not study cites. Study participants would have to travel to Northridge for the nearest study site.
