We are in the early stages of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and while we don’t know how many people will fall ill, we do know that individuals and families are already feeling the impacts at home.
We’ve put together this list of resources so you can get the help you need. If you know of a person or business that’s offering help, in any form, please email me at [email protected] and I will add it to the page.
If you are exhibiting symptoms you feel may be consistent with COVID-19, DO NOT show up at your place of health care unannounced. Instead, please call Confluence Health (509) 663-8711 or Columbia Valley Community Health (509) 662-6000 so they may ask you a few questions that will best determine your course of care.
