Wash Hands Frequently
Increased frequency of handwashing is one of the most effective means of preventing the spread of illness
Cover Your Cough Diligently
Covering our cough can help reduce the risk to others by reducing aerosolized respiratory droplets
Avoid Touching Your Face
Touching a surface that harbors viruses and then touching nose, mouth, or eyes is a primary mode of transmission
Stay Home If You Are Sick
If at all possible, stay home when you are not feeling well. Social isolation can do much to stop the spread of viral infections
Guidelines for your encounter
The safety of our patients, employees, and the community at large is of the highest priority at Valley Immediate Care. With that in mind, please be aware of the precautions and limitations we are putting in place during the Coronavirus outbreak to protect you, as well as everyone else.
- If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms and have a mask, please wear it when presenting to the clinic, or accept one offered to you by our staff upon arrival.
- In an effort to limit exposure, we are asking patients not to bring unnecessary company with them to the clinic and to ask family members to remain outside of the clinic unless absolutely necessary to directly aid with the patient encounter.
- Please understand that we are still in a state of limited testing availability. All testing will be done on an as needed basis as determined by our providers using the latest advised testing algorithms.
- We are implementing telemed visits and would advise as many people as possible to access our services through that channel. Note that there may be times when you start an encounter as a telemed visit where you may be advised that further evaluation may be needed.
