Coronavirus and COVID-19

How to protect yourself and get care

The safety of Physicians Medical Primary Care patients and visitors remains our top priority. We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases and our clinical team is highly trained in infection prevention protocols. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 developments in partnership with our local health department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We encourage you to start your care treatment without leaving the comfort of your home. Please call us at 408-243-6911 during normal business hours and we will connect you with a clinician to determine next steps. This allows you to still get great care while helping to address the community spread of COVID-19. 

If you need to come in, we’re here for you during normal business hours — and we’re taking every precaution to keep our facilities safe and sanitized. 

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

What can I do to protect myself and others?

Public health officials recommend the following steps to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including influenza and COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
  • Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands often, using either soap and water or alcohol-based hand gel for at least 20 seconds
