North Central Public Health District is now asking all of its clinic clients to call first before coming. Many services can be provided over the phone. The clinic is still open to provide some services, but clients are asked to call 541-506-2600 and ask to talk to a nurse, who can determine whether an in-person visit is needed. The “phone first” request applies to both the walk-in clinic and those with appointments. Earlier, North Central Public Health had switched to providing home visiting and WIC appointments by phone.
