CIMC Video Update: Dr. Daniel Davis presents at Avalon City Council Meeting

Dr. Davis addresses the surge in new cases in LA County and throughout the US, examines data surrounding influenza-like symptoms of ER and EMS patients as well as Catalina Island's cases over time compared to the rest of the nation. He discusses the success of CIMC's voluntary contact tracing efforts, at-home quarantine for positive cases and the continued safety of long-term care residents at CIMC.

Dr. Davis summarizes how vaccines are created including an explanation of adenovirus and mRNA vaccines, how effective these vaccines will be and how long they may last, as well as vaccine distribution timeline and safety.

Also covered are new quarantine and testing guidelines for those who have been exposed to COVID-19, and discussion of new treatments. Dr. Davis encourages our continued personal responsibility to contain the virus until the vaccine arrives by limiting our exposure, wearing masks and social distancing even through this very difficult and different holiday season.

COVID-19 testing is available at CIMC by appointment. Please call (310) 510-0096 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm to schedule. CIMC ER remains open 24/7 and all services at the CIMC clinic remain open for in-person, telemedicine, and virtual care.
