Prevent getting COVID-19 by avoiding exposure to the virus
- Practice social distancing – keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others.
- Do not gather in groups. Stay out of crowded places.
- New Jersey requires that in public, everyone wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth. The only exceptions: those who cannot do so for medical reasons, and children 2 years of age and younger.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially — after going to the bathroom; coming in from outside; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; and if your hands are visibly dirty. Soap and water are always best! If soap and water are not available, use a 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue or your arm (dispose of the used tissue immediately).
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces — doorknobs, faucet handles, refrigerator and oven doors, countertops, etc., — using a regular household disinfectant spray or wipe.
- Get tested often! MFHN offers COVID-19 testing — see information above.
If you, a family member or friend are experiencing any flu, cold, fever, cough and/or shortness of breath symptoms, or if you or anyone in your household has been exposed to individuals with COVID-19, please call us at 201-478-5827 and speak with one of our providers as soon as possible.

Important Notice on the Closure of the MFHN Bergen Avenue Site
This announcement serves to inform the community that effective December 31, 2020, Metropolitan Family Health Network’s (MFHN) site at 857 Bergen Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07306 has closed. MFHN will continue providing care at the main MFHN site, located at 935 Garfield Avenue in Jersey City, and the West New York site, located at 5300 Bergenline Avenue.
The healthcare providers and staff members who cared for patients at Bergen Avenue will continue care at the Garfield Avenue site. The MFHN van transportation will remain available for Bergen Avenue patients upon request.
We understand this closure may be an inconvenience for some patients, and that they may wish to transfer their care to another primary care provider. MFHN will assist in finding new doctors and transferring medical records. Please phone 201-478-5800 with any questions or requests.
In 2021, Metropolitan Family Health Network plans to open a new location where it will provide the services that were offered at the Bergen Avenue site. Information on the opening will be posted at MetropolitanFHN.com and on the MFHN social media platforms.
