Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Information for Parents & Students

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with information on how to access local medical care for Coronavirus (COVID-19) Symptoms and provide informational links from the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health websites. 

We encourage our students and families to stay in touch with their physician for any COVID-19 Symptoms.  Note that some or our local pediatricians, physicians, & our local Q-Care Clinic are offering Telehealth where appointments can be done online.  Check your local physician’s website, facebook page, or call your physician’s office for information on how to access this service. 

(When using the Clearfield Penn Highlands Q-Care Clinic, patients are encouraged to log onto the My Health Now App, google Penn Highlands My Health Now, or you may call the Local PH Call Center at 814-375-6644.  When contacting Penn Highlands Q-Care: patients are to specify if they are requesting a COVID-19 Test & if so, indicate that they want to see a COVID-19 physician).
