In a COVID-19 update shared from Willapa Harbor Hospital, they say that both sides of Willapa Medical Clinic are closed.
They tell residents that the clinic will reopen when we can be confident that it is safe for our patients to return.
In addition, and out of an abundance of caution, the hospital is not allowing visitors to enter the hospital facility.
Officials will be contacting patients seen at Willapa Medical Clinic within the past 7-10 days.
If you visited Willapa Medical Clinic within that time period, per the CDC guidelines, your exposure risk is still low.
While it is a policy to require employees to always wear a mask when caring for patients, they encourage any who are interested in testing, or who have symptoms, to be tested.
We encourage everyone to do your part to slow the spread of this disease by following all CDC guidelines.
The exact details of how COVID has caused the sudden closures is unknown.
