A more transmissible coronavirus variant, originally discovered in the UK, has been detected in the United States, specifically in the states of Colorado, California, Florida, Georgia and New York. This new strain is NOT believed to be more deadly, or more resistant to existing vaccines. We want to remind everyone that while we wait for more vaccine doses, we must be vigilant about protecting our families and those most vulnerable in our communities by continuing to observe public health safety guidelines. That means avoiding travel unless essential, and not gathering with those outside of your household. Protect yourself and others from getting or spreading coronavirus by wearing a mask over your nose and mouth when outside your home.
As always, CIMC is here to care for you. Our ER remains open 24/7. If you need a COVID-19 test or would like to schedule an appointment at the CIMC clinic via virtual, telemedicine or in-person care call (310) 510-0096.
