If you have traveled to an area where COVID-19 is present within the last 14 days and have symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), contact your healthcare provider or New Hanover County Public Health at (910) 798-6500 for guidance. Before visiting an emergency department, walk-in clinic, urgent care or other healthcare provider's office, you must call ahead so that they can plan safety precautions to prevent the spread of infection during your visit.

Please remember that NHRMC still has visitor restrictions in place to prevent the spread of flu:

  • Do not visit if you are sick or have flu-like symptoms
  • Refrain from bringing children 12 or under to any NHRMC or Pender Memorial Hospital facility unless they are being treated
