As of April 3, 2023, employees, patients, and visitors in healthcare settings are no longer be required to wear masks per Oregon Health Authority guidelines. Masks remain an effective way to reduce the transmission of respiratory viruses. To reduce the spread of illness to others such as our staff, TCC providers ask that you wear a mask if you are sick. Please let any member of the team know if you would like a mask and if you would prefer your medical team wear a mask during your visit.
The COVID vaccine is approved for ages 6 months and up. Our providers recommend the vaccine for everyone that is eligible as a crucial step in controlling the spread of COVID. Please see our vaccine page for more information.
We continue to offer COVID testing every day at our clinics for symptomatic individuals. If you have any symptoms of COVID, including fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, vomiting and/or diarrhea, or an exposure to COVID, testing appointments can be scheduled without a visit with one of our providers.
