A Message from our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Trung Nguyen, MD

The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented situation and we recognize the need for reliable, current information. We are committed more than ever to support our communities during this time. We will provide updated links below to credible and official news sources so that you can make the most informed decision for you and your family to stay safe and healthy.

Protect yourself and family from getting sick

You may have the virus and not show symptoms. Follow these precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

1. Practice social distancing (6 feet distance apart)

2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. In a pinch use hand sanitizer (60% alcohol)

3. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you sneeze or cough – immediately throw away.

4. Avoid touching your eyes and mouth

5. Wear a face mask if you have to go to out in public. Cloth face coverings are recommended by the CDC to help prevent community-based transmission.

IMPORTANT: You want to avoid close contact with people. The virus spreads through respiratory droplets from your mouth, or nose. 

The CDC remains the best source for information.

    • Have been exposed to COVID-19
