Helpline for APD Patients (603) 442-5665
(603) 442-5665 is a COVID-19 triage helpline for questions from established APD patients. Please be sure to leave your callback phone number, your name, and your date of birth. We look forward to answering your questions.
 

Coronavirus Self-Checker
Please visit the “Coronavirus Self-Checker” from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Simply launch the blue chat box at the top of the CDC page. The purpose of the Self-Checker is to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care and we hope you find it helpful.
 

How to Protect Yourself 
Please take these steps to protect yourself from COVID-19. They include avoiding exposure, washing your hands, social distancing, covering your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces every day.


What to do if you are Sick or Caring for Someone who is Sick with COVID-19
If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, you should follow these guidelines to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and in your community.


Always call 911 if you have a Medical Emergency
If you have a medical emergency and need to call 911, notify the operator that you have or think you might have COVID-19. If possible, put on a facemask before medical help arrives.


APD’s Emergency Department, Multi-Specialty Clinic, and Hospital are here to Provide Care
In response to COVID-19, we as members of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) system began to delay some elective procedures starting in March and moved many appointments to video, phone, or telemedicine visits. If you have any questions about a current appointment or are in need of an appointment, please call the provider’s office directly or submit your question through myD-H. 

New Visitor Policy
Our entire campus has an updated visitor’s policy that you should be aware of before coming for your surgery/appointment.

Updated Mask Guidelines
Following the CDC recommendations to reduce asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic transmission of COVID-19, all APD employees, patients, and approved visitors are now required to wear a mask while on campus.
