If you are feeling sick
If students or family members are having a medical emergency (like extreme difficulty breathing), they should call 911 or go to the Emergency Room. Otherwise, please see information below about how families can access needed healthcare.
If students or families have urgent healthcare needs, families should call their medical provider, even if they have not seen their medical provider for a long time, to get advice or schedule an appointment. Right now, testing for the coronavirus is still limited. Your medical provider can advise about whether this is recommended or needed.
If families do not already have a medical provider, La Clínica de La Raza can register new patients over the phone and then conduct a phone consultation to assess if the patient should come in for a visit or stay home. We are reaching out to other community clinics to see if they will be accepting new patients at this time.
For adults and pre-school aged children (ages 0-3) who do not already have a doctor or medical provider please call:
