Yale Medicine specialists are caring for COVID-19 patients and are conducting clinical research to learn more about the disease and how to treat it. Whether you are a patient, a family member or just gathering information, this page is a resource to provide information you need about COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, and your options for medical care.
MyChart and Telehealth
We encourage all Yale Medicine and Yale New Haven Health System patients to sign up for MyChart, a secure online portal that gives you access to portions of your electronic medical record. Not only does it allow you to manage and receive information about your health, it also enables telehealth visits (by phone or video), which is how Yale Medicine specialists are delivering most care not related to COVID-19.

Our Yale Medicine/Yale New Haven Health COVID-19 Call Center offers information on how to keep yourself and your family healthy. Health professionals are available to answer your questions, seven days a week, 7 am – 7 pm. Call 203-688-1700.
COVID-19 testing and hospital care
If you have concerns about symptoms and exposure, you should first contact your primary care doctor. Your primary care doctor can facilitate a specimen collection at a Yale New Haven Health System site, if needed.
