In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Nuestra Clinica del Valle (NCDV) is complying with local and county regulations as it relates to social distancing and everyone needing to wear a facial covering. NCDV is asking every patient presenting at our clinic to comply with these regulations and to use their facial covering. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to protect our patients and keep our communities safe.
At Nuestra Clinica Del Valle (NCDV) our top priority is protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff members, and the communities we serve. We understand that this can be a confusing time, but we are committed to responding to your needs, partnering with other providers and health authorities and staying informed as this evolves in Hidalgo County and Starr County.
Most people who get COVID-19 will experience mild symptoms that they can easily manage at home. Please do not come to the clinic if you are experiencing any symptoms (cough, fever, difficulty breathing). If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 or believe you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, please call NCDV at 956-787-0787 and speak to our staff. NCDV staff will help you determine the next steps of where you should go. At this time NCDV does have the ability to test for COVID-19. Please call us to discuss your options.
Nuestra Clinica del Valle (NCDV) is initiating temporary restrictions and guidance for patient visitors to all clinic locations. As the COVID-19 status continues to rapidly evolve, visitor restrictions are subject to change. NCDV is screening all patients, staff, and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19 who come to one of our locations. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) so that patients affected by COVID-19 will be able to get the care they need while protecting the health and safety of our staff and the community at large.
Prevention of COVID-19
The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of any respiratory virus, including COVID-19:
- Wash hands often for 20 seconds and encourage others to do the same.
- If no soap and water are available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Disinfect surfaces, buttons, handles, knobs, and other places touched often.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
