We'll Keep You Updated on COVID-19 as this Pandemic Continues to Evolve
Dear friends and colleagues,
 
First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts go out to all who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
 
HCC and its Live Well Community Health Centers are focused on the health and well-being of our patients, community, employees, and partners. We strongly support the efforts of local health officials and government leaders working to contain the spread of the virus, and have implemented these precautions throughout our organization and Live Well Centers:
 
We have increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing procedures at all offices and Live Well Centers.

We have prepared our teams to respond quickly to developments that could impact our organization and clinic, leveraging the considerable insights we have received from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our insurance companies, and federal and state governments.

We are closely monitoring the ongoing public response to this situation in each of our communities, assessing how local and federal agencies may affect our patients, employees, and other community stakeholders, in order to minimize any disruptions to our programs and clinical service offerings.

We have updated contingency plans for patients who may present with flu-like symptoms or who may have been exposed to COVID-19.

Employees who become symptomatic will remain at home and follow the same guidelines established for our patients.
 
We will provide frequent updates on the status of our organization and Live Well Centers via email, HCCNetwork.org, and social media platforms as we continue to monitor the course of this pandemic.

LCHD Suspends Walk-in Clinics
The Lafayette County Health Department is continuously monitoring the evolving situation and working to ensure our community is prepared.

We are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to help protect the public health and limit spread of this infection.

In an effort to keep our community healthy and slow the spread of COVID-19, the Lafayette County Health Department will suspend walk-in clinics through April 3rd. All WIC appointments will be done via telephone and vouchers mailed to the address we have on file. If you need to update your address or phone number, or if you have questions, please call the health department at 660-259-4371.
Social distancing, proper hand hygiene and sneezing/coughing into a tissue will help slow the spread. We will work diligently to keep the county informed during this ever changing situation.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank the community for their cooperation during this time and doing everything they can to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
