About COVID-19

Fairchild's Health Protection Condition Level: BRAVO +

On Jan. 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared a public health emergency of international concern for the 2019 novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. On Jan. 31, 2020, the secretary of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency in the United States and announced new measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The current epidemic, which originated in mainland China, has demonstrated the capacity of COVID-19 to spread globally. While supporting other government agencies’ response to the COVID-19 threat, the Department of the Air Force is responding appropriately to protect the health of the force and maintain operational readiness.

Visiting Medical Clinic

The Patient Entrance (north side of the building) will continue to be a single point-of-entry into the facility from the parking lot will be accessible via McFarlane Road (see the below map for reference). Upon entering the building, beneficiaries will be asked COVID screening questions. Members who have symptoms of COVID will not be allowed to enter the building, but they will be asked to call our Respiratory Clinic for additional screening where a medical authority will determine if they need an appointment for testing.

Members who have an appointment in the Respiratory Clinic WILL NOT enter the building through the Patient Entrance on the north side of the building. Signage will direct patients to the Respiratory Clinic parking on the south side of the building. Signs located at the parking stalls will provide further instructions.

As a reminder, we are no longer doing walk-in COVID testing. ALL beneficiaries require an appointment for testing, which can be obtained by calling 509-247-2361.  Appointment availability varies, but we are currently able to see nearly all patients within 24-36 hours.
