COVID 19 NEWS AND UPDATE




In light of a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Crook County and within the Crook County School District, Crook County Medical Services District (CCMSD) and Crook County Public Health would like to outline the procedure we will be following. 

 

If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 that include any of the following:

- Fever or chills

-Cough

-Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

-Fatigue

-Muscle or body aches

-Headache

-New loss of taste or smell

-Sore throat

-Congestion or runny nose

-Nausea or vomiting

-Diarrhea 

 

Please contact your local clinic (Sundance Clinic 283-2476, Moorcroft Clinic 756-3414, Hulett Clinic 467-5281). CCMSD clinics are open Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. Outside of these hours please contact the Sundance Hospital at 283-3501. The staff can assist you on the protocols for receiving COVID-19 testing. 

 

If you have any of the following symptoms please seek emergency care:

-Difficulty breathing

-Persistent pain or pressure in the chest

-New confusion

-Inability to wake or stay awake

-Bluish lips or face

 

If you have had a potential exposure to COVID-19, but have no symptoms please contact Crook County Public Health at 283-1142 with any questions or concerns. This will help to ensure that everyone is receiving a consistent message. There are a limited number of tests available as well as limited protective equipment due to this public health crisis. CCMSD will not turn anyone away seeking medical care, but we do have protocols in place that are meant to keep patients and staff as safe as possible and preserve the protective equipment that we do have. If you have had a COVID-19 exposure and have been encouraged to quarantine, a negative test does not release you from that recommendation. We would like to remind everyone to please wear a mask when social distancing is not possible and to wash your hands frequently.

TELEHEALTH/TELEMEDICINE


TELEHEALTH /TELEMEDICINE visits are now available through Crook County Medical Services District, right from your phone or computer! Telehealth is available Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.

What to Expect

Just like a typical office visit, you’ll be evaluated via your phone or computer camera using the Zoom application. Alternatively, CCMSD is also using Apple Facetime if you have an Apple computer. You and your local provider communicate directly. You’ll see, hear and speak with the remote provider from the comfort of your own home.


How to Access Telehealth

If you would like to use CCMSDs Telehealth service, please call the hospital at 307-283-3501 and ask to speak with a nurse. Your billing information will be taken over the phone. Check with your insurance company to see if Telehealth visits are a covered benefit. Please download the free Zoom app prior to calling and make sure your phone camera is functioning properly.

To download Zoom, simply go to their website https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting


COMMUNITY NEEDS ASSESSMENT

 

We want to hear from you!

Crook County is preforming a community needs assessment.  The community is our whole county and we want to hear from you.  From the information gathered vital planning will occur that will be the base that actions can be taken to address strengths and weakness.  

Please take a moment and complete the following survey.

OUTPATIENT LABORATORY DRAWS


In an effort to add additional protection for our patients, all outpatient blood draws will be screened in the Sundance Clinic.
**Moorcroft Clinic and Hulett Clinic will still do their own draws.**


CCMSD UPDATE


Crook County Medical Service District Providers continue to accept patients in the clinic but we are working to limit people’s exposure.
Every individual is screened when they come through the door and we are offering Telehealth visits through Fast Track for acute injury or illness.

Please know that if you feel you need to seen, the providers are happy to see you. However, for annual wellness visits, they recommend that you wait until the coronavirus pandemic clears. 
If you have any questions, please contact any of the clinics:

Sundance 307-283-2476

Moorcroft 307-756-3414


Hulett 307- 467-5281
