COVID-19 Letter to our Patients
With news reports about the coronavirus (COVID-19) changing daily, its understandable to feel concerned and even a bit anxious. Everybody here at Western Pacific want to assure you that we are prepared to continue your care should the virus come to the communities we serve.
We have been monitoring this evolving global health issue closely, conferring with the local and state health departments, as well as with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and holding regular meetings focused on our emergency preparedness protocols. We have the supplies, staffing and space identified to serve patients who may need us.
We have always had very strict policies and procedures related to the cleaning of our facilities, including making sure to use bleach, and wipe all surfaces, railing, door knobs, sink knobs, and light switches. Cleaning personnel have been updates to the best practices regarding COVID-19 of maintaining a safe facility.
Together, we can reduce the risk of exposure to the virus and help you and your families remain healthy and safe. One of the best ways to protect yourself is to wash your hands frequently using soap and water. Hand sanitizer can also be used as an alternative. Also, you should avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Attached to the letter are the tips, as published by County of Los Angeles Public Health, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Provided you have recently traveled to one of the affected countries, or you have come into contact with some that is ill, and now feel ill, contact you doctors office, urgent care clinic or emergency room. You will be instructed what to do next if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
Western Pacific will continue to be right here with all those we serve whatever the circumstances. Should you have questions please the contact a clinic staff member.
