Abbeville Area Medical Center and its physician practices have implemented a screening hotline for those who are experiencing a cough, congestion, sore throat, runny nose and flu or cold symptoms.  The hotline should also be utilized by those who think they have the Coronavirus or think they may have been exposed to the virus.

Please call the hotline at 864-366-1770 BEFORE coming to any of our physician practices or the AAMC Emergency Department.  The hotline is available Monday – Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm.  Appointments are preferred and can be made by calling the hotline.

After calling the hotline, you will receive information about what you should do next.  You may be referred to our Respiratory Clinic located at 901 West Greenwood Street, Suite 6 (in between the Healthcare Center and hospital on Thomson Circle).  Hours are Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm.

After hours or on weekends, or if you feel your symptoms are worsening (cough, high fever, shortness of breath, body aches), please visit the AAMC Emergency Department.  If your symptoms are severe please seek medical attention immediately.

 If you are having mild symptoms, simply self-quarantine and do not come to the hospital or your doctor’s office.

Prevention and protecting yourself

Prevention to protect yourself from Coronavirus (COVID-19) includes washing your hands often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If hand washing is not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol until they feel dry. Put at least a 6-foot distance between people who are in close contact with one another and avoid any close contact with anyone who is sick or has flu-like symptoms. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. Stay home while you are sick.

Social distancing measures are one of the tools we can use to keep our patients, staff and visitors healthy.

For general questions regarding Coronavirus call the DHEC care line at 855-472-3432 from 8:00am – 6:00pm seven days a week or visit the CDC or SCDHEC websites.
