HCC is Working with Health and Social Care Partners to Support the Health and Well-Being of Area Residents. Please do your part to stay well, and remember these CDC recommendations:​

1. Wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.

2. Use a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol.

3. Cough or sneeze into a tissue and throw it in the trash (clean your hands).

4. Avoid touching your eyes, ears, and mouth.

5. Stay home if you are sick.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, or if you are experiencing symptoms, self quarantine immediately and call for instructions: 1-877-435-8411 – Nurse Hotline. For questions about COVID-19, call 660.259.2440 day or night.

Please take this pandemic seriously. If you present with symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) at one of our Live Well Centers, our staff will take the appropriate measures to test for influenza (flu) A & B. Patients with flu or respiratory symptoms who test negative for flu A & B must self quarantine immediately.

You will be directed to a COVID-19 emergency response hotline for additional instruction. Live Well Centers are fully equipped to test for the flu. Please call one of our locations for an appointment.
