Health services at JCC

Please call before you visit. Drop-in visits are not permitted at this time.

Jamestown Community College's health centers remain committed to providing excellent health care services to all our students and staff. The health center doors will be locked, and patients must be screened before entering. We will screen your visit by phone, FaceTime, or email before we see you in the center. The pre-screening procedure separates anyone with COVID-19 signs or symptoms or contact with an individual who has been exposed to the virus and prevents its transmission within the health centers. Anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms or questions should call the JCC health centers for assistance and directions for care.

  • If you have medical questions and/or are ill, contact Kathy Manhart, RN (716.338.1077) at the Jamestown Campus or Shawna Trudeau, RN (716.376.7569) at the Cattaraugus County Campus. A health history will be taken over the phone or by other technology (FaceTime, Zoom) and an appointment will be made for you to be seen by our nurses.
  • If you have questions regarding immunizations, records, appointments, nursing and OTA physicals, or health center policies and procedures, contact health center assistant Charlene Johnson (716.338.1013).

About the health centers

Jamestown Community College’s health centers promote health and wellness through nurse directed care and wellness counseling. Our registered nurses and staff are dedicated to helping you stay healthy.

The registered professional nurses in each health center are trained to assess and treat many minor health conditions and illnesses and evaluate the need for emergency care for students, faculty, and staff. Prescriptions for health conditions are NOT available at the health center. Patients who may require more extensive treatment and medical care will be referred to the appropriate facility such as emergency room, urgent care, or their own health care provider.

Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Keep a safe distance.

It’s simple to keep yourself and others safe during the pandemic. Practice these simple habits to maintain your health and keep those around you safe!

  1. Wear a face mask at all times in public, such as stores, restaurants, and classrooms. Masks are required in all JCC buildings.
  2. Wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer frequently. Avoid touching your face.
  3. Practice social distancing. Keep about 6 (two arms’ length) feet between yourself and others at all times. A cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  4. Avoid contact with people who are sick.

Other ways to protect yourself and others

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, including tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Then, use a household disinfectant.
  • Commercial wipes can be used to disinfect surfaces. Read the label for proper use, storage, and to determine if wipes are effective against the COVID-19 virus.
  • Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface being cleaned. Check the label to see if your bleach is intended for disinfection and is not past its expiration date. Some bleaches, such as those designed for safe use on colored clothing or for whitening, may not be suitable for disinfection.
  • Unexpired household bleach is effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Leave solution on the surface for at least 1 minute.
