Calendar for Fri. Mar. 13, 2020

If you have a cough, fever and shortness of breath, call the Warm Springs I.H.S. Clinic “COVID-19 Nurse Triage Hotline” at 541-553-5512 and you can speak to a nurse who will assess your symptoms and make a recommendation for the best treatment.  If you have those symptoms please DO NOT come to the clinic but rather call the “COVID-19 Nurse Triage Hotline” at 541-553-5512.

The Health & Wellness Center is limited entry into the facility to the main entrance where everyone should check in at patient registration.  All entrances except the main entrance will be locked.  Regardless of what you are at the clinic for – you need to use the main entrance and check in with patient registration.  Be prepared for a few questions about your current health – and to use hand sanitizer.  This is to ensure everyone’s health & safety.

The things you can do to protect from spreading the COVID-19 virus is to:

  • wash your hands frequently
  • cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue
