COVID-19 in Moses Lake: Where To Get Help If You Need It

We are in the early stages of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and while we don’t know how many people will fall ill, we do know that individuals and families are already feeling the impacts at home.

We’ve put together this list of resources so you can get the help you need. If you know of a person or business that’s offering help, in any form, please email me at [email protected] and I will add it to the page.

This list will be frequently updated as information comes in.

Samaritan Healthcare announced the opening of the Samaritan Respiratory Virus Evaluation Center (RVEC Clinic), located at the west entrance of Samaritan Clinic on Pioneer. The RVEC Clinic intends to help medically screen any patients currently experiencing respiratory illness symptoms, including cough, fever, and difficulty breathing, and for patients who have concerns that they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. 

Patients should call the 24-hour nurse (509-764-3331) hotline prior to visiting the RVEC Clinic or local Emergency Department.
