Flu Shots Are Now Available
Flu shots have arrived at Courtney Medical Group. Flu symptoms are very similar to those of COVID-19; the flu vaccine not only helps prevent flu illness in our community, it preserves health care resources for those battling COVID-19. Please read more about the importance of the flu vaccination here.
You are able to request your flu shot at follow-up appointments at CMG, or attend our open clinics on Wednesdays from 9a-4p. Quantities are limited; please call our office with any questions.
Updated CDC Recommendations Regarding Virus Testing
After changing their recommendation in late August, much to the surprise and against the suggestion of many health officials, the CDC reversed their stance that it was not necessary for those without symptoms (but having had contact with individuals known to have COVID-19) to receive testing. The recommendation has returned to state “Due to the significance of asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic transmission, this guidance further reinforces the need to test asymptomatic persons, including close contacts of a person with documented SARS-CoV-2 infection. Testing is recommended for all close contacts of persons with SARS-CoV-2 infection. Because of the potential for asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic transmission, it is important that contacts of individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection be quickly identified and tested.” Testing is available at most local pharmacies, at your providers office (including at Courtney Medical Group), and there are temporary testing sites available through Pima County. You can read more about the update and testing availability here.
FDA Authorizes Covid-19 Tests For People Without Symptoms
Covid-19 tests have been difficult to come by, with most made available to those that are exhibiting symptoms. Last week, the FDA authorized tests for those without symptoms. Tests will be available at a wide variety of locations, although there may be a delay in obtaining a test as those with symptoms and at higher risk will receive priority scheduling. Read more about the details of the new authorization here.
CDC Recommends Face Coverings While In Public
Late last week, the Centers For Disease Control recommended that people use face coverings while in public settings. This is in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 by those that are ill or asymptomatic. Please follow these guidelines for how to effectively use a face covering; the recommendations specify disposable masks, but if you opt for a cloth covering, the best precaution is to wash the covering after use, and to avoid touching the covering (along with maintaining hand hygiene and frequent cleaning of high traffic areas).
If you would like to purchase handmade cloth masks, Courtney Medical Group has them available for sale for $8 each. Adult sizes; children’s sizes available upon request.
Please call our office (520-797-8555) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
