Program Changes

You can also call 211 for information on alternative community programs.

Permanent Suspension of Programs

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has forced us to change the way we operate. Social distancing, additional cleaning regimens, and PPE costs have made it challenging to continue to run all our programs. At this time, we are permanently suspending the programs listed below. If you used these services and need help meeting these needs, call us and ask to speak with a Care Coordinator. They will help identify other community resources to meet your needs.

If You Have Symptoms of COVID 19

COVID 19 symptoms

Call your primary care provider!

Lamprey Health Care is screening our patients who have a fever and respiratory illness for COVID 19 risk. We may be able to evaluate your symptoms over the phone, or we may want to see you face-to-face to assess your condition.

If you have symptoms of COVID 19, we may recommend self-quarantine to help prevent the spread of the virus to others.

Should I just come down to the health center?

All patients need to call before coming to the health center. We have protocols in place to ensure the safety of all patients and staff. Additionally, there may be specific instructions we ask you to follow. Any instructions from our staff are in place for your safety and the safety of our patient care teams. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
