Sea Mar Community Health Centers is closely following updates about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) from the CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and local and state public health agencies. Our priority, as always, is to keep our patients safe and to continue to provide quality healthcare. We have put procedures in place to protect patients, staff, and our community. • Such procedures include but are not limited to masking patients with respiratory symptoms; having a dedicated wing in each clinic for patients with certain respiratory symptoms; and implementing phone and telehealth visits for routine care.
With a growing number of confirmed COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) cases in the greater Seattle area and United States, feeling sick can be scary. But the best thing to do if you feel ill is to stay calm and contact your doctor.
If you have symptoms like cough, fever or other respiratory problems, contact the clinic before coming in or going to a hospital. Please do not go to the emergency room if not necessary. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911. At all of our medical clinics, we strive to provide the quality of primary health care that your family deserves. Below you can learn more about the virus and what we are doing at our clinic to prevent the spread of it.
According to the Washington Department of Health and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- The novel coronavirus is new respiratory virus that was first detected in China and has been spreading person-to-person in other countries, including the United States. The virus has been named SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes is called COVID-19 (short for coronavirus disease 2019.) There are no known treatments for the disease. Most people will recover on their own, but some people can develop severe illness and pneumonia and need medical care or hospitalization.
- In Washington state, many people have tested positive for COVID-19 and there have been deaths.
- As new information emerges from across the globe, please remember that the risk of COVID-19 is not at all connected with race, ethnicity. Seeking and sharing accurate information during a time of heightened concern is one of the best things we can do to keep rumors and misinformation from spreading.
- Shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing
- Symptoms appear 2-14 days after exposure
- Stay home when you are sick, especially if you have respiratory symptoms. It’s important you stay away from others when sick.
- Stay home if you believe you have been exposed to the virus, even if you are not showing any symptoms.
- Monitor yourself for fever, cough and shortness of breath.
- Regularly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the bathroom and before preparing or eating food. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay away from people who are sick.
- Stay home as much as possible. When out in public, practice social distancing and keep at least 6 feet between yourself and other people. Some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
- Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as door knobs and sink faucets.
- A cloth face cover is recommended to be worn while out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
- Get a flu shot to help fight the flu.
Currently, there are no vaccines available to prevent novel coronavirus infections.
