COVID-19

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that has flu-like symptoms, including coughing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.

According to the CDC, the following symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure:

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath

If you have symptoms

If you believe you may have been exposed to Coronavirus, please request a virtual appointment via the link provided on our our website prior to coming in. 

 

If you have the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, the best action is to follow CDC’s recommendation to self-quarantine.

If you have severe symptoms, particularly difficulty breathing, we recommend you go to the nearest Emergency Room to get emergency care. Please protect others in your household by doing the following:

  • Stay home except to get medical care.

  • Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home.

  • Wear a face mask when in close contact with others.

  • Cover your cough and sneezes.

  • Wash your hands often, using this World Health Organization protocol.

  • Avoid sharing household items.

  • Clean all high-contact surfaces every day

  • Monitor your symptoms – seek prompt medical attention if your illness is worsening, especially if you have difficulty breathing.

Don't Delay Care

During the current Washington State Restrictions issued on November 16th, 2020, essential services such as healthcare are allowed to stay open as long as safety measure are met.

Access Healthcare is open and providing virtual care using your phone, tablet, or computer, as well as safe, in-person care when necessary. 

 

Walk-in Clinic Visits and Scheduled Appointments at our Clinics:

  • We are pre-screening our patients at the door to protect patients and staff.

  • On our doors, you will find our Front Desk backline. Please call that number to check-in for your visit and our staff will pre-screen you over the phone.

  • After checking in and being pre-screened, please wait in your car.

  • If your provider determines your visit/appointment should still occur in an exam room, you will only be called when the exam room is ready for you. There is no need to wait in our waiting room/lobby.

  • Please know that we sanitize and disinfect every exam room after every patient visit.

For prescription-refill requests:

  • Prescription-refill appointments can often be done through a virtual visit. Please inform us at the time of scheduling that your purpose is for prescription-refills and you want this to be scheduled as a telephone visit.

  • Please note that some prescriptions may require an in-person visit or lab work. Your provider will have additional directions during your telephone visit should lab work be required.

  • Our walk-in labs follow the same protocol of pre-screening at the door and waiting in the car.

Please limit the number of people you bring with you during your appointment.

  • As part of our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we ask that you do not bring guests with you to our clinic. While we make every effort to keep our waiting area clean and sanitary, limiting the number of people in our space is an important prevention strategy. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
