Naval Health Clinic Lemoore implemented 100% screening for everyone who enters the facility which include health questions and temperature checks prior to entering the clinic’s single entry point. Cloth face coverings or masks without a vent are required to enter the clinic.
Triage Tent: A triage tent has been set up to allow patients with respiratory illness symptoms (fever, cough, and shortness of breath), a history of travel, and believed exposure to COVID-19, to be screened prior to entering NHCL.
Those who are seeking evaluation for flu-like illnesses or potential COVID-19 infection will be directed to an outdoor area or their cars where they will be checked-in, triaged, and evaluated by a licensed provider. During the triage process, the providers will determine if further evaluation and testing is needed, or if patients can proceed home for self-observation. The outdoor screening process is primarily to determine the right course of care for patients.
