Some helpful information about the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19

Since those with existing respiratory illnesses and other chronic conditions are likely to be especially vulnerable to the coronavirus infection, HCBF is trying to do our part to share information with the community we serve. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have a fever or respiratory illness (cough, difficulty breathing, or shortness of breath), please follow CDC’s recommendations to prevent the spread of the disease and call your primary care doctor’s office or local public health department before going to any healthcare location.

For updates on COVID-19 in Los Angeles County and other resources in multiple languages, please go to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health webpage on coronavirus: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/

You can contact the Department of Public Health directly at: 213-240-7941, Monday-Friday, 8AM to 5PM. For Afterhours: 213-974-1234.

Contact a local healthcare facility to see if they have a telehealth or virtual appointments with a healthcare provider.
