TRIAGE HOTLINE

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

CURRENT INFORMATION & UPDATES

The spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has all of our attention. We continue to monitor the virus closely and want to assure you that the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top priority. 
 
At Borrego Health, we have a standard protocol in place for any infectious disease, including Coronavirus (COVID-19). We continue to follow the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local and state health officials. 
 
If you are concerned that you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are worried about cold or flu symptoms: ​

  • You may be evaluated prior to entry at a Borrego Health clinic. If you show symptoms or have traveled to a country on the CDC watchlist (click here for more information), you may be asked to wait in a designated area and provided with additional instructions. 

  • If you are not ill with cold or flu symptoms and have a routine appointment already scheduled, you may still come to the clinic. There is the possibility of a location change to keep your risk of exposure low. Please call your clinic to confirm where to go. 

  • Currently, we have limited supplies of coronavirus test kits. Please call the clinic prior to coming in to ensure we direct you to the proper location for COVID-19 testing. 

Help stop the spread of illness by taking everyday preventive actions:

  • Avoid shaking hands to prevent the spread of germs.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. 

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. 

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 

  • Stay home when you are sick. 

  • Cover your entire mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your bent elbow. 

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

We will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.
