Call ahead to 806-765-2611 if you are experiencing fever or signs and symptoms of lower respiratory illness (ex. cough, shortness of breath.)

CHCL staff will meet you at the entrances to our clinics.

  • You may see tents at the outdoor entrance, outside doors or inside medical office building before you enter for your appointment.
  • The person who greets will screen you for symptoms under CDC guidelines as well as, recent travel.
  • The screening procedure will determine how we will guide you to receive services.

If you do have symptoms of any viral illness or someone in your household has been diagnosed with the virus:

  • The greeter will direct you back to your vehicle with further printed instructions.
  • You will be asked to proceed to the drive-thru process for screening

New Visitor Policy

  • We discourage visitors but if you need to be accompanied to your appointment please take extra precautions and follow the check in procedures.
  • We will limit visitors to one healthy adult per patient.
