Providence Family Medicine has set up a separate clinic, dubbed the East Entrance Clinic, for patients with symptoms of possible COVID-19 such as fever, cough and shortness of breath.
When a Family Medicine patient calls for an appointment, they receive a brief phone screening for COVID-19. Those with possible symptoms are directed to the east entrance of the Providence Family Medicine building, 1111 S Second Ave.
The clinic has separate rooms and processes to prevent patients with possible contagions from coming in contact with other patients.
Patients without symptoms enter through the main entrance as usual.
The East Entrance Clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The contact number is the same as Family Medicine, 509-897-3700.
