Do face masks prevent COVID-19 from spreading?

By wearing a face covering, YOU the wearer, are helping to prevent potentially infecting others if you are pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic. Covering your face helps reduce the spread of droplets that are expelled into the air during everyday activities like talking, cheering, sneezing, coughing, etc.

Do I have to call ahead for Urgent Care?

No. Urgent Care at Regional Family Health-Manchester is open M-F from 4-7PM and Sat-Sun from 8AM-1PM. Closed holidays. Questions? Please call 563-927-7777.

Do I need to wait to get other vaccines if I am getting my COVID vaccine?

No. There is no time period you need to wait for any other vaccinations before or after you get your COVID vaccine.

Does my face mask need to cover my nose?

Yes. Respiratory droplets are expelled out of both your mouth and your nose. Your face mask needs to fit snugly over the bridge of your nose and chin, creating the best possible seal.

If you leave your nose uncovered, you are risking inhaling and expelling viral particles. You also risk self-contamination from the exterior of your mask.

How do I prevent getting COVID-19?

These practices will help reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19.

  • Clean your hands often
  • Get your COVID-19 vaccine
  • If you are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19, keep 6 feet of physical distance from others
  • Wear a face mask in public (that covers your nose and mouth)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with others
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Stay home when you are sick
