COVID-19 - What You Need to Know

ACCESS TO THE CARE YOU NEED, WHEN YOU NEED IT

Our goal is to ensure you have the most up-to-date information available about COVID-19. Given that COVID-19 is ever-developing, we will regularly update the information on our website to ensure it is current. We continue to partner with state and local agencies, and our own infection control team to provide you with the highest level of care in an environment of absolute safety – at our hospitals and clinics.

Safety is our top priority!
Everyone who enters must wear a mask, even if they are fully vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and the State of Washington require everyone to be masked in health care settings. Guidance from the CDC removing some masking requirements for fully vaccinated people still requires masking in health care settings.

Update: FDA Takes Multiple Actions to Expand Use of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine:

-The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has authorized emergency use of the COVID-19 vaccination for the prevention of COVID-19 to include use in children down to 6 months of age, and we are now offering vaccine to that age group at our Wenatchee Vaccine Clinics. Appointment required.
- Expand the use of a single booster dose to include use in individuals 12 through 15 years of age.
- Shorten the time between the completion of primary vaccination of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine and a booster dose to at least five months.
- Allow for a third primary series dose for certain immunocompromised children 6 months through 11 years of age.

COVID-19 Therapies

How to request COVID-19 therapy for an active COVID-19 infection

Patients must be screened to ensure they meet the state defined eligibility criteria in order to receive treatment or oral antivirals. These therapies are only given with a prescription or order after a patient is determined to be eligible for therapy.
Please do not go to the emergency department or pharmacy to request monoclonal antibody treatment or oral antivirals. Instead work with your primary care physician or provider to request a referral for treatment
