Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
We know many of you have concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that seems to be spreading rapidly. We are hopeful that we will remain a low activity area, but want you to be prepared as cases in our community rise. Since Coronavirus has no targeted treatment or vaccine the best treatment is prevention. This means doing everything you can to prevent infection. Washing your hands properly with soap and water or an alcohol based hand sanitizer, covering your cough and distancing yourself socially are vitally important. The CDC also recommends wearing a mask in public places like the grocery store. Elderly individuals or those with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, heart or lung disease, are at the highest risk for infection that could lead to serious illness or death. With COVID-19 in our community we encourage you to avoid unnecessary trips to public places and use good hygiene practice regularly. If you suspect you have been near someone with Coronavirus and/or have symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath stay home and call us at 662-323-3162 for instructions. We have multiple appointment options available to accommodate your needs. For more information please follow the links below:
