If you have questions regarding COVID, would like to schedule an appointment to be tested or to receive a COVID vaccine, please call our COVID Team at (315) 379-8132 (Monday - Friday, 8am - 4pm).

At Community Health Center of the North Country, our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients. To help ensure the safety of our patients, their family members, and our community, we are asking anyone who has recently traveled outside of the North Country, and anyone who is experiencing any symptoms such as cough, fever or shortness of breath, to please call the health center before any scheduled appointment. For your convenience, the number for each location is listed below.


To help further reduce the spread of possible illnesses, we are asking that only the patient themselves enter the building for their medical appointment, unless said patient requires a caregiver to attend the appointment with them. All other family members or those in company of the patient must remain in their vehicle and may not enter the building. Patients with children who are not being seen by a provider must make arrangements for childcare prior to their appointment.

Most of our health center services have returned to regular operating hours. For more information on which services are currently available and what you can expect during your visit, please check out our Status of Services page.

Community Health Center of the North Country now offers COVID-19 Testing at our Canton Health Center, located at 4 Commerce Lane. If you have an order from your healthcare provider to be tested, or you feel you should be tested, please visit our COVID-19 Testing page for more information.

Community Health Center of the North Country continues to work closely with public health officials on COVID-19 vaccine distribution. For updates on when the vaccine will be available to you, please visit our COVID Vaccination page.

Please call and talk to your provider to determine whether a face-to-face or virtual appointment is best for your next visit.
