COVID-19 update
COVID UPDATE INFORMATION…The Ellsworth Free Medical Clinic continues to follow CDC guidelines and continues to require masking for staff and patients while providing care in the clinic. We update protocols whenever necessary and because of our diligence and screening, we have never had to close the clinic because of infection.
COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
Take Every Precaution
Take simple steps to reduce the spread of COVID-19, such as:
Wear face coverings when in public, when around people who don’t live in your household, and when you can’t stay 6 feet away from others.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or alcohol based gel.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Get recommended vaccinations for Covid
Know the Symptoms: Symptoms may appear
