Covid-19/Coronavirus


A message from Rick Goins, Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Adam Connell, Dr. Benito Bajuyo, and Dr. Jonathan Walters

Cloth face coverings are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling in the air and onto other people when the person wearing the cloth face covering coughs, sneezes, or talks.

Please, follow CDC recommendations and wear a cloth face covering to help us slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
