COVID-19 FAQs

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF

Coronavirus spreads through contact with respiratory droplets caused by coughing and sneezing. You should be using the same prevention methods as you would to avoid a common cold or the flu. The best ways to protect yourself include:

  • >> Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

  • >> Try to avoid touching your face.

  • >> Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • >> Stay home from school or work when you are sick.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS

If you are in respiratory distress, call 911.

If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms of respiratory infection, call New Jersey Cancer Care at:
973-751-8880

Our team can help direct you to the appropriate site of care based on your symptoms and medical history. If you are directed to our office, wear a mask if possible and limit exposure to others. Please immediately notify the staff of your possible illness upon arrival.

For patients who want to speak to a doctor immediately, we will offer telemedicine service after hours to avoid emergency room visits.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO KEEP ALL PATIENTS SAFE

We take this situation very seriously and have been preparing for potential cases for weeks. To help protect patients, all our locations are using a special coronavirus protocol to direct patients with flu-like symptoms to the appropriate site of care, typically an urgent care.

At New Jersey Cancer Care, all staff are trained on the appropriate care for patients with flu-like symptoms and are wearing masks and using protective equipment when appropriate. We are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Health (DOH) guidelines to limit the spread of the virus including how we isolate patients with symptoms and how we disinfect rooms between patients.
