CONCERNED YOU MAY HAVE THE VIRUS?

Patients experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, and shortness of breath) SHOULD NOT visit the Emergency Room unless very ill. You must contact the Tulare County Communicable Disease telephone line by calling 2-1-1. The County will assist with testing information, scheduling, and provide next steps.


We apologize for any inconvenience
these changes may cause, but we believe these measures of protection are essential at this time to keep people safe. Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Take Steps To Protect Yourself

Clean Your Hands Often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

 

Stay Home If You're Sick

 

  •  

Avoid Close Contact

 

 

Cover Coughs And Sneezes

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

 

 

Wear A Facemask If You Are Sick

  • If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.

If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

 

 

Clean And Disinfect

  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
