We understand that you may have questions and concerns about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), how to reduce your risk of getting sick, and how to manage cold or flu-like symptoms. It is still flu season, so if you are experiencing these symptoms, you most likely have the common cold or flu.
We are sharing some guidelines to keep you informed and to help you protect yourself and those around you:
  1. If you are sick, stay home. It’s the best way to avoid spread of illness.
  2. If you have flu-like symptoms such as a fever, cough or sore throat, or difficulty breathing, please call your primary care doctor’s office for further instructions. At this time, our offices do not have the ability to test for Coronavirus. If you need immediate medical attention, please dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
  3. To help reduce the risk of exposing you and others to the flu, common cold and coronavirus (COVID-19), CMP’s primary care providers will be seeing patients who have coronavirus, flu, and cold-like symptoms via e-visits whenever possible. For those patients whose providers are participating in the e-Visit program, please login to your MyChart Account (mychart.communitymedical.org) to start an e-visit. 
We recommend the following measures you can take to reduce your chance of getting sick:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water regularly for at least 20 seconds each time or use alcohol hand sanitizers.
  • Try not to touch your face with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick (and keep sick children home from school).
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and wash your hands afterwards.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
If you have traveled recently, have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath (that does not need immediate medical attention), you can contact the local health department at (559) 600-3200 or (559) 600-3332 and the health department will give you advice as to whether or not you should be tested.
Sincerely, Your Community Medical Providers Health Care Team
