How are coronavirus concerns affecting La Clinica’s services?
Health center hours and services: Our health centers are open normal hours. Visit our locations page to find operating hours at each center. La Clinica continues to offer services including primary medical care, mental health care, and women’s specialty care. Some visits are being conducted by video or phone. For in-person visits, we ask you to avoid bringing others with you to the appointment when possible. Call us at 541-535-6239 with general questions.
Patients with cough and fever: We see patients with a cough, fever, or related symptoms as part of our respiratory triage clinic inside our Acute Care Clinic. Our medical staff assesses patients to determine who is eligible for COVID-19 testing, which is offered on site. Call us at 541-535-6239 to speak with a nurse to see if you should come in. Read more about how the clinic works here.
Dental service: We are offering all services, including emergency appointments for any community members who are experiencing pain, swelling, or trauma.

How can I protect myself?
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to avoid spreading germs or viruses. View a video of proper handwashing techniques here (español). Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue rather than into your hands.
The CDC also recommends (español): working from home if possible, avoiding social gatherings of 10 people or more, avoiding eating at bars or restaurants (using drive-through, pickup, or delivery instead), and avoiding non-essential travel.
When you visit us, please wear a mask if you have one. Otherwise, we’ll provide you with one.
What are the symptoms of this illness?
Symptoms include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Older people and people with existing health conditions are at higher risk for serious illness and should take extra precautions in public.

What role does the La Clinica Mobile Health Center play in this?
The mobile center has a role as part of Jackson County’s emergency process and could be called into service for coronavirus work depending on what’s needed. It served people living near the Bear Creek Greenway this spring as part of the community’s coronavirus response and now has returned to its regular community schedule.
Is La Clinica doing anything special to help houseless communities with this issue?
We are working with community partners to address the special vulnerabilities of people who are experiencing homelessness. La Clinica’s Mobile Health Center staff is available for this population.
