COVID-19

Experiencing Symptoms?

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, chills, muscle pain or headache, or diarrhea, please call your provider for either a face-to-face appointment or a telemedicine consultation.  If your provider determines you need to have a COVID-19 test, they will send you to the appropriate outpatient location for testing.  If you are experiencing an emergency, please present to the Emergency Room.  At this time, we are preserving our Emergency Room COVID-19 tests for those who are experiencing an emergency.  Otherwise, we would ask that you follow the steps above.  If you do not have a healthcare provider, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic welcomes new patients.  Please call 903.885.3181 to talk to one of our associates about setting up an appointment.

Don’t Delay Care:

We want to be perfectly clear – CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances remains a safe place for all to receive quality care. Go to the Emergency Department or call 9-1-1 if you are urgently ill. While COVID-19 is new, our processes and procedures in place for infection prevention and preventing the spread of illness are not.
