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.

Welcome to Contra Costa Regional Medical Center's Greeting Cards. From the comfort of your home you can send a FREE card to your loved ones.

We realize that you may not always be able to visit your friend or loved one while they're in the hospital, so the Volunteer Office has created an opportunity to let them know you're thinking of them.

Greeting cards are only delivered Monday through Friday. Every effort is made to deliver within 24 hours, but realizing the length of stay is unknown, don't forget to express your love and concern in other ways.
