Our healthcare system in Snohomish County, and the region, is stretched to the max.
Please see this urgent message from the chief medical officers from hospitals and healthcare systems across our county.
Western Washington Medical Group is closely following the most up-to-date announcements and information on Coronavirus (COVID-19) from the CDC and local health officials. We are continuing to offer in-office appointments. Our primary goal remains keeping you healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are taking precautions to ensure that you and our staff are safe by screening patients, cleaning the waiting room frequently, disinfecting exam rooms between patients, maintaining a no-visitor policy for patients, practicing social distancing in the waiting room, and requiring that you wear a face mask to enter our care centers. Our staff is required to be vaccinated or taking additional precautions with an approved exemption.
If you prefer a telehealth visit, all of our providers offer virtual visits. You’ll have a face-to-face video visit with your provider, receive evaluation and receive a prescription, if necessary, without leaving your home. You can request a virtual appointment by calling your provider.
SYMPTOMS – If you have life-threatening symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, please call 911. If you are experiencing common symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, chills, cough, body aches, or new loss of taste or smell, please call your primary care provider for guidance.
COVID-19 Testing – testing is available in the community for those with or without symptoms. You can get tested before you travel or return to work, or just to know whether or not you have the virus. Fully vaccinated people should get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
COVID-19 Vaccine – anyone 5 years of age and older – including non-residents such as out-of-state college students and other visitors – are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage everyone eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine. It is our best chance to bring an end to this pandemic.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule an in-person appointment or virtual visit, please call your providers office.
Thank you for entrusting us with your care.
