An Important COVID-19 Message from Corner Clinic 

Corner Clinic is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our community. We are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and community. To do our part in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are implementing visitor restrictions and screening policies at our Corner Clinic facility until further notice. 

The arrival of COVID-19 in our region has prompted many questions from patients and the public. Corner Clinic has designed this page to connect you with reliable information from our experts, as well as local, state, and federal health officials. Here you can learn about how Corner Clinic is responding to COVID-19, and find links to useful resources and information that will help you prepare as well.

We have also introduced Telehealth, a new technology option for our patients, to schedule live face-to-face video appointments with our clinicians through your computer or mobile device. These online appointments allow to connect on your computer or phone screen with our staff, and there’s no downloading of software necessary. To schedule your appointment we are taking calls for Telehealth from 8AM-10PM Monday-Friday, 9AM-10 PM Saturday, and 1PM-10PM Sunday. Our clinic number is 601-992-0004. The cash price of COVID-19 diagnostic testing is $375.00.

The CDC and Prevention and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) continue to closely monitor the outbreak of respiratory illnesses caused by the novel coronavirus COVID-19, and, as health care professionals, we are working to limit the spread of cases in Mississippi. MSDH is actively working to respond safely and effectively to COVID-19. Mississippians are advised to take health precautions to prevent the possible transmission of disease.

In addition to CDC guidance, MSDH is providing supplemental guidance to Corner Clinic, hospitals and healthcare facilities about determining the risk of healthcare worker exposures to COVID-19 either through direct care or contact with the patient.
