Protect Yourself From Flu


Last updated: January 19, 2018, 12:14 pm

California and Contra Costa are seeing high levels of flu activity. We remind the community to take the following steps to prevent the spread of flu.

  • Get your flu vaccine
  • Clean hands often with soap and water or with hand sanitizer
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Stay home when you’re sick

People with flu like symptoms should call their health plan's Advice Nurses to get help with self-care or to help them decide if they need to visit an urgent care clinic, make an appointment with their health care provider or go to an emergency room. Rarely is emergency room needed for flu or respiratory issues.

Contra Costa Health Plan members and Contra Costa residents who do not have health coverage can call 1-877-661-6230 and select option 1 to speak to an Advice Nurse.

Donate


Our work could not happen without the generous donations of community members. Every donation helps to further increase the quality and level of services we provide.

Housing Security Fund

As a senior on a fixed income, James couldn't pay all his bills after a steep rent increase, and he eventually lost his housing. After months of hard work, he has new affordable housing lined up but those unpaid bills now stand in the way of James getting out of a shelter and into a home where his grandchildren can visit.
Your donation to the Contra Costa Housing Security Fund can help end homelessness for James and others like him.
This community fund covers costs that can prevent many people, including seniors, veterans and families, get back into housing, and protects property owners who offer these screened renters an opportunity.

You can make tax deductible monetary donations to the Contra Costa Housing Security Fund to help cover costs that can prevent many people, including seniors, veterans and families from getting back into housing and protects participating property owners who offer these screened renters an opportunity.
