Currently, it is uncertain how long social distancing and isolation will continue as health care workers carry on the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak. But as we work from home, play (with a safe social distance, of course) and live, medical challenges unrelated to the pandemic still arise that require medical care. From medical emergencies to primary care and routine health screenings, access to comprehensive, quality health care services has a direct and positive impact on health outcomes. In recent years, Adventist Health Castle has established five primary care clinics—from Kailua to La‘ie—and their medical teams are ready to meet your health care needs by providing top-quality, safe medical care. Q What are our clinics doing to keep you safe? A Castle primary care clinics are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within their offices and in their communities. Here’s what you can expect at our locations: •  Enhanced cleaning protocols to reduce the spread of COVID-19. •  Telephone screening for symptoms of suspected COVID-19 or the flu. •  Waiting area changes to help enforce social distancing. •  Optional telehealth visits so you can visit with your primary care physician without coming into the office. Q What steps should I take before a visit? A Before visiting our primary care clinics during the COVID-19 outbreak, keep these tips in mind: •  If you are sick with symptoms related to COVID-19 (fever, dry cough and respiratory symptoms), call ahead and tell the team. They will have special instructions for you. •  If possible, bring no more than one person with you to the visit. •  Schedule an appointment ahead of time to help limit your wait time. Castle’s primary care clinics provide a great way to get treatment for a minor illness or injury before it becomes a serious health problem. Ramy A.
