Frequently Asked Questions:
What safety precautions are being taken at Santa Rosa Community Health to reduce exposure to COVID-19 for patient and staff ?
We are taking extra precautions to protect our patients and staff. All patients who call or come in are carefully screened for respiratory symptoms and risk factors for exposure to coronavirus (aka COVID-19). We have set up hand sanitizing stations throughout our campuses and ask that all patients and providers wear a mask. Any patients with positive risk for coronavirus are tested outside of the clinic.
Should I get tested for COVID-19?
Not everyone should or will get tested for coronavirus. Testing is limited and based on a provider’s evaluation of your symptoms and risk factors. Based on that, you and your provider will decide if you should get tested.
Will getting tested or care affect the Public Charge Rule?
Regardless of your immigration status, any patient who needs testing, treatment, and preventative care for COVID-19 can get it. As always, SRCH does not track or report our patients’ immigration status and is always here to care for you. It WILL NOT negatively affect anyone as part of a future Public Charge evaluation. If you or someone you know needs care, it is critical to get it.
