California CareForce takes seriously our responsibility to our volunteers, staff, and patients to put into place safety procedures to our clinic services. These changes may impact an individual’s ability to receive care. While our clinic flow and requirements may look different during this time, we assure you we will continue to provide quality healthcare to as many people as possible, while also practicing new and necessary safety procedures as a result of COVID-19.
NOTE: If you have symptoms of any respiratory infection (e.g., cough, runny nose, fever), you must not attend a California CareForce clinic, and must take appropriate preventive actions (e.g., wear a facemask while in the presence of others).
COVID-19 safety procedures will include the following:
All patients will be required to have completed a full COVID-19 vaccination series, with booster, prior to receiving care at at any California CareForce clinic – please bring proof of vaccination (including booster) with you to the clinic.
If a patient has not been vaccinated, the patient must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours of clinic service (limited COVID-19 testing will be available at the California CareForce clinic).
All patients will undergo a COVID-19 screening (questionnaire and temperature check) upon entering the clinic. Patients with positive COVID-19 symptoms will not enter the clinic and will be referred within the county for follow-up care.
All patients are required to wear a California CareForce-specified face covering (N95) at all times except while receiving dental treatment and/or medical examination (California CareForce will provide N95 masks for all patients receiving services).
Only those receiving services will be allowed to enter the clinic. Other family members, or children, not receiving services will not be permitted within the clinic (except for caregivers, or parents and/or legal guardian accompanying a child under 18 years of age).
Other safety procedures like social distancing, distancing between services, and outside patient waiting will also be set in place.
