Catalina Island Medical Center

We do not have enough manpower here if people were to start getting sick. Are visitors being discouraged from traveling to the island via Catalina Express?

Catalina Express has dramatically reduced the ferry schedule, and the absence of activities has greatly reduced tourist traffic.  Our advice for islanders coming into contact with individuals from the mainland as part of their work is to behave similarly to medical providers: after a shift, remove clothing and wash thoroughly before interacting with household members, and maintain appropriate social distance whenever possible.

No tenemos suficiente ayuda aquí si las personas empezaran a enfermarse. ¿Están desanimando a los visitantes a viajar a la isla a travel de Catalina Express?

Catalina Express ha reducido drásticamente el horario del ferry, y la ausencia de actividades ha considerablemente reducido el tráfico turístico. Nuestro consejo para los isleños que tienen contacto con personas en el resto de California como parte de su trabajo es de comportarse de manera similar a los proveedores médicos: después de un turno, quítese la ropa y lávese bien antes de interactuar con los miembros del hogar, y mantenga una distancia social adecuada siempre que sea posible.
