Protect Yourself From Flu

Last updated: January 5, 2018, 7:08 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.

Students work intensively with a small individual caseload, and co-lead psychoeducational and process groups. Students also visit jails and state hospitals conducting court-ordered evaluations of individuals found incompetent to stand trial and assist in the assessment of patient readiness for community treatment. Students learn about violence risk assessment, including the assessment of anti-social and psychopathic personalities and become familiar with provisions of the California Penal Code concerning mentally ill offenders.
