The Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be present in our community and a major concern, but we are hopeful that with more people choosing to get vaccinated, the end of COVID is near. We recognize this is an anxious time for many of our employees and families, with evolving advice from public health departments and our government. We are all doing our best to provide support to those most in need. Please review our communication above and contact our office should you have any questions or concerns.
Nothing in our guidance is meant to replace any updated recommendations given by the Public Health Department, CDC or any government entity. Our direction will be updated and sent out to our employees and families as major changes in our provision of care take place. Regardless of our guidance, if you feel that you cannot or should not receive care from our organization right now for any reason, we support your choice. Please let us know so that we can plan accordingly. You can call us, email us, or use the Contact Us form on our website.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at (805) 384-0983.
