New measures to address COVID-19
Northern Valley Indian Health (NVIH) has enacted several new measures to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) while continuing to provide patients with quality compassionate care. The measures are based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Governor of California, and California Dental Association, and will be in place for two weeks. The COVID-19 situation is being continuously monitored by NVIH leadership and measures are subject to change.
All medical service clinics are open. However, non-vital medical appointments are being rescheduled or conducted via telephone or telemedicine when possible. All patients are evaluated and screened for COVID-19 symptoms and/or exposure prior to entering the buildings. Patients with COVID-19 symptoms and/or exposure will be escorted through alternate building entrances to limit exposure to staff and other patients.
Additional measures enacted include:
• All non-emergency dental appointments have been cancelled or rescheduled
• Behavioral Health Providers remain available in our clinics and appointments are being conducted via telephone or telemedicine
• All Outreach and Community Health groups and events have been cancelled
• All services at the Red Bluff Dental clinic have been temporarily suspended, urgent care patients are being redirected to the Chico or Willows clinics
• Patient transportation services have been cancelled to limit prolonged exposure and close proximity of patients and staff
Staff not involved with direct patient care have been asked to voluntarily stay home at this time to maintain social distancing. While NVIH serves patients in Butte, Yolo, Tehama, Glenn, and Colusa counties, there have only been confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Butte and Yolo counties. There have been no confirmed cases of NVIH patients or staff.
"The new measures enacted are both preventative and proactive," said Inder Wadhwa, Chief Executive Officer of Northern Valley Indian Health. "We are committed to helping prevent the spread of COVID-19, while continuing to provide quality compassionate care."
