Supplies are limited and not easily accessible for smaller clinics such as ours. At this time all patients needing flu or coronavirus testing will be referred to urgent care or other facilities. Please give us a call so we can give you the best resources available to you.
I'm having flu like symptoms, can I come in?
Flu like symptoms, of coughing, fever, sneezing are similar to the symptoms of COVID-19. We ask that you give us a call so we can best help and direct you. Please visit your nearest urgent care location for thorough flu testing and treatment.
Are my existing appointments going to change?
At this time, all appointments with our providers and counselors are still scheduled. If you have suffered from a fever, coughing, or any flu like symptoms please call the clinic for more direction regarding your upcoming appointment.
During this season, you may be experiencing seasonal allergies. If you have not had a fever, but are experiencing coughing or sneezing, we kindly ask that you wear a mask while in the clinic.
How can I protect myself?
We along with the CDC recommend washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to avoid spreading germs or viruses. View a CDC video of proper hand-washing techniques here. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not easily available. Please avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands. If needed, cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue rather than into your hands.
What are the symptoms of this virus?
