Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

At Ingham Community Health Centers, we are closely monitoring developments around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In order to protect our patients and staff, we want to provide you with helpful information and resources to keep you and our community safe.

Ingham Community Health Centers is requesting anyone who is ill or experiencing symptoms to Call their healthcare provider or facility before seeking care.  For contact information, visit our Locations & Hours page.

Symptoms of  coronavirus may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus. They include:

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of Breath

Prevention is KEY and Ingham Community Health Centers is working to limit the spread of illness through:

  • Continuous, thorough cleaning and sanitizing of exam rooms, lobbies and frequently touched surfaces at all facilities.

  • Making masks available for patient use, hand sanitizer and tissues available in all waiting areas.

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Everyone can help prevent the spread of coronavirus and other infectious diseases by practicing everyday prevention measures like frequent hand washing, staying home when sick and covering coughs and sneezes.

SCHOOL BASED CLINICS: Sexton, Eastern, Pattengil, Gardner and Everett are closed until further notice.
DENTAL: We encourage our low-risk patients to keep their dental appointments as long as you do not have any of the symptoms.
