Ridgecrest Regional Hospital is closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak in both the U.S. and countries across the world, and are working closely with Kern County Public Health Services Department and the state of California in taking all of the necessary steps required.

We continue to prepare and be ready to take care of any patient(s) that could potentially have COVID-19. If you, as a patient, are concerned that you might have COVID-19 or have been exposed, please call your doctor’s office first. If you need to be seen in the Emergency Department, please inform the staff immediately so the appropriate steps can be taken.

Influenza is still circulating in the community, which doesn’t end until April 30. Influenza and the new coronavirus are both infectious respiratory illnesses, and although COVID-19 is caused by a different virus, the symptoms in the onset can appear very similar.

We would like to reiterate to the community to please wash hands frequently, cover when you cough and avoid touching your face. If you are not feeling well and have someone in the hospital, reconsider visiting them and stay home if you are feeling unwell.
