Patient Support for COVID-19

If you are an established Mass General Brigham patient with a primary care provider, we recommend you contact your provider’s office by phone or via Patient Gateway if you have symptoms that may indicate exposure to COVID-19 or if you believe you may have been exposed.

If you are an established patient and do not have a primary care provider—or are unable to reach them—there are other resources available to you.

COVID-19 Screener Online Tool

This web-based tool allows patients who have symptoms of COVID-19—or who are concerned about exposure to COVID-19—to walk through a few automated online questions. At the end of the brief assessment, patients will be directed to next steps based on their health status. Start screening.

Mass General Brigham COVID-19 Nurse Line

Staffed from 8am to 4:30pm, 7 days a week, Monday through Friday, nurses can respond to general or specific questions about COVID-19 for those who have symptoms, believe they may have been exposed, or are looking to learn more.

If testing or treatment is needed, the nurses will guide you through next steps. Interpreters can be added to calls for patients who need it. The nurse hotline is available to anyone that is a Mass General Brigham patient, regardless of immigration status or insurance.
