COVID-19 Updates

The health and well-being of our patients, staff, and community is our top priority.

What to Do if You Think You’re Sick:

Call ahead: If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, and had contact with a person with COVID-19, or recently traveled to countries with apparent community spread, call us at 323-653-1990.  Our team will ensure the appropriate precautions are taken before you arrive at our clinic.

*Additional Screening Protocol: Special white tents have been set-up at all three locations. Anyone entering the Clinic (patients and staff) is screened by nurses and/or medical staff for symptoms of COVID-19. Medical staff will determine if an in-person visit is urgent or if medical or behavioral health concerns can be addressed in a telehealth visit.

Current Services – How We Can Help

Medical & Mental Health Appointments:

When possible, all routine visits are being completed using telehealth (phone/video). Call 323-653-1990 before coming into the Clinic. Our team will determine what visit is right for you.

COVID-19 Testing:

We are currently testing patients for COVID-19 in two ways:

  • Molecular test, COVID-19 PCR (nasal or mouth swab)
  • Immune response test (checks for an antibody called immunoglobulin G that is the result of past or recent exposure to COVID-19)

Please call (323) 653-1990 to schedule an appointment to determine which test you qualify for.

Free Shower Program:

For patients experiencing homelessness is running at both the Beverly and Hollywood sites. New protocols adhere to social distancing requirements (all shower patients will receive a daily medical screening and education about COVID-19 and how to prevent spread).

Precautions You Can Take:
Practice good personal health to prevent any type of viral infection.

  • Clean your hands often with soap & water for at least 20 seconds. If that is not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay home if you are sick.
  • Adhere to the guidelines for social distancing.
  • Cover your coughs & sneezes with a tissue or your elbow; throw used tissue in trash & immediately wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as your phone, doorknobs, sinks, etc.
