Changes in Place at Enloe

Enloe Medical Center practices disaster preparation year-round. In response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have aligned our actions with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Butte County Public Health (BCPH), and other regulatory agencies.

To keep you, our caregivers, and our patients safe, Enloe is pre-screening patients and visitors for respiratory illness:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath

We have also:

  • Reduced the number of entrances to increase pre-screenings
  • Launched a COVID-19 Information Hotline that’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week  at (530) 332-9540 to provide general information on the virus and safety tips
  • Implemented a temporary visitation policy based on recommendations from regulatory agencies
  • Canceled several community events and support group gatherings
  • And posted tents outside our medical center to triage patients if needed

Introducing Our Virtual Emergency Departmentmaking a call

Enloe Medical Center expanded access points for patients with the recent launch of the new Virtual Emergency Department available by phone at (530) 332-9540. Give it a try!

Staffed by nurses seven days a week between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., patients can ask questions related to health concerns, including minor injuries. Nurses can help determine if a doctor visit is necessary either through an electronic visit with a physician, or a visit to Enloe’s Prompt Care or Emergency department.

Remember, your health and well-being are important — especially during these challenging times. Though social distancing emphasizes the importance of staying at home, we encourage you to seek care for yourself and your family when needed. Learn more.

COVID-19 causes fever, cough and shortness of breath. Older adults and those with chronic medical conditions are at higher risk.

The best way to prevent the spread of the illness and other respiratory diseases is to:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
