As part of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic’s commitment to keeping our staff, patients, and communities safe, we are adjusting operations to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Many of our health care services are available from the safety of your home through our Telehealth service. If you wish to come in to our health center for care, you can do that as well. To schedule a Telehealth or in-center visit online, please visit the health center nearest you or call (800) 230-7526.
For medication refills such as birth control, emergency contraception, PrEP, PEP, and hormone therapy, you can use our Patient Portal to submit requests or call (800) 230-7526. You can also use the Planned Parenthood Direct app for birth control pills and UTI treatment.
If you come to our health centers for care please follow the following safety precautions:
- Wear a mask or other face covering
- Maintain 6 feet between you and others in the health center
- Wash your hands with hand sanitizer available in the health center
- Family or friends are not permitted at this time
Please do not come into our health centers and follow up with your primary care provider if:
- you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell
