GENERAL UPDATES FOR THE PUBLIC:
Washington Street Respiratory Clinic is closing: After Friday, May 1st, we will temporarily close the Washington Street Clinic location until
further notice. If the need arises, we will immediately reopen this location.
Beginning Monday, May 4th, all non-emergent patients who are ill with respiratory signs or symptoms
should report to Priority Care at 30 W. Rampart, Shelbyville. (317) 398-7644.
Nursing Homes: MHP Psychology is offering a FREE 30-minute virtual visit for employees
located at any Shelby County extended care facility. We know how hard
they have been working and the extreme stress they are under. We will
communicate with each facility with directions on how to take advantage
of this free service.
Antibody testing: Serum testing should be able beginning next week. IGG, IGM, IGA will
all be available. The IGG will be the recommended test for outpatients.
We are working with LabCorp on the pricing since they will be performing
the test. This is an antibody test to determine if you have had COVID-19.
- We need your empty hand sanitizer bottles. We are making our own hand sanitizer
and need your empty containers in order to reuse.
Do you have items that you would like to donate? (hand sanitizer, masks,
respirators, gloves, N95, bouffant caps, or gowns). If so, please contact
Angela Gill (email@example.com)
Food Donations: Several community supporters have called to offer to donate food for
our staff and physicians. Some are also doing it as a way to support those
restaurants who are struggling to stay afloat while they are only open
for carryout. We are extremely grateful for all the community support
and selfless gestures. If you would like to find out more information,
please contact Angela Gill (firstname.lastname@example.org).
