COVID-19: What You Need To Know
The City of San Angelo has mandated that all patients must receive proper health screening before entering the facility. The health screening includes a series of health questions and also a temperature check. At this time, each patient is only allowed to bring one other visitor with them to the facility. We recommend that you arrive earlier to your appointment to allow time to be properly screened.
At La Esperanza Clinic, Inc. our top priority is protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff members, and the communities we serve. We understand that this can be a confusing time, but we are committed to responding to your needs, partnering with other providers and health authorities and staying informed as this evolves in Tom Green County.
Most people who get COVID-19 will experience mild symptoms that they can easily manage at home. Please do not come to the clinic if you are experiencing any symptoms (cough, fever, difficulty breathing). If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, please call La Esperanza Clinic at (325) 658-5339 and speak to our staff. La Esperanza Clinic staff will help you figure out the next steps. Please call us to discuss your options.
When deemed necessary, patients are screened for COVID-19. La Esperanza Clinic does not charge for screening. If the triage nurse confirms criteria has been met you will be scheduled for a telehealth visit with one of our providers so that they can determine if you require further testing. La Esperanza Clinic has a limited number of tests for COVID-19 and will refer most patients to Shannon for testing. In the event determination is made to test through La Esperanza, your healthcare provider will provide you with instructions on receiving the test. La Esperanza Clinic administers the SARS-COVID-2 nasal pharyngeal swab for PCR. The cost of COVID-19 testing is $51.00
