How to Get Care for COVID-19
How do I get care if I have COVID-19 symptoms?
Call your doctor's office or health care provider if you think you need to be evaluated for COVID-19. We will advise you on the best way to receive the care you need. If you don't have a primary care doctor, call 1-800-82-SHARP (1-800-827-4277) to find one today.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, do not come to the emergency room or to one of our urgent care centers unless your doctor has instructed you to do so, or you feel you are having a life-threatening emergency.
If your doctor has told you to come in for care, wear a cloth face covering. Advise the staff located at the building's entrance of your symptoms so they can give you a standard mask.
If you need 911 services, inform the dispatcher that you may have COVID-19.

Sharp HealthCare is working with local, state and federal agencies to coordinate the distribution of vaccines for San Diego residents once it receives federal approval and becomes available. Front-line health care workers will be the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine so they can continue to care for patients. When a vaccine is available for the community, Sharp will provide updates about how the vaccine will be administered.
