Our Response to COVID-19

As is well known now, the COVID-19 outbreak has become a severe health emergency. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that people continue to follow social distancing to minimize the spread of the virus and cross-infection. However, it is still very important to maintain your health. Our offices are open, and we offer telehealth (virtual visits) so you can obtain care as needed at a convenient time. Certain conditions may require an in-person visit, so contact our office to determine what is right for you.

We continue to follow CDC guidelines and infection control measures as we have done even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Masks and other protective equipment as appropriate are still necessary and worn by all staff and patients. Check the local guidelines and resources here.

Get Tested for COVID-19 at Our Irvine & Fountain Valley Locations

Family Care Centers has been offering two ambulatory COVID-19 testing sites, one in Woodbridge, Irvine, and the other in Fountain Valley. Both our sites are accessible to everyone for all types of COVID-19 tests, including pre-op and travel clearance.

We offer the “gold-standard” PCR test for COVID-19 at both sites, which provides a more accurate diagnosis of whether an individual has the virus in their body. We accept most of the insurance plans for COVID-19 testing at our sites. Learn more about our COVID-19 testing sites by clicking on the links below:

About Pre-Op COVID-19 Tests: Preoperative tests are required for patients who have an upcoming surgery and have been instructed by their surgeon or physician to get a Pre-Surgery COVID-19 Test done for verification that the patient isn’t infected. It is also important to note that after the test, the patient needs to quarantine themselves until their procedure so they do not infect themselves between the testing date and the date of the procedure.

 

About COVID-19 PCR Travel Test: COVID-19 travel tests are for those who need a COVID-19 clearance for traveling abroad or within the country. Because of the coronavirus spread, many countries and the US states have added mandatory testing requirements, which require a negative viral COVID-19 test for visitors. So, if you are traveling to a country or state that requires a COVID-19 test, you can visit our COVID-19 PCR testing sites for travel in Irvine and Fountain Valley in CA and get tested for a worry-free travel. Even if your destination isn’t mandatorily requiring a COVID-19 negative test result, we still recommend getting a test done before travel so that you can travel responsibly and help slow the spread.

The office hours of our Fountain Valley and Irvine locations have not changed. Only our Costa Mesa’s urgent care center’s business hours are temporarily reduced to 8 AM to 5 PM. Click here to check business hours for all our urgent and primary care locations.
