Somerton Sunset Health Clinic Closes Due To Positive COVID-19 Test
Sunset Health clinic in Somerton has closed down its offices as it monitors a patient who tested positive for COVID-19.
The clinic is working with public health officials and chose to close the facility to protect the safety and well being of the staff and patients. It plans to re-open Monday.
Current Sunset Somerton patients can still receive care over the phone and through telemedicine as Sunset Health works with Somerton medical providers. Their number is 928-819-8999.
On March 12, Sunset Health officials announced that a patient in San Luis, Arizona met screening criteria consistent with viral respiratory infection, including the coronavirus.
Sunset Health did not close that clinic and the employees of the health center were not quarantined at that time.
San Luis Mayor Gerardo Sanchez later confirmed to KAWC the first COVID-19 cases in that city.
