A Note to Our Community
Developments relating to COVID-19, the coronavirus, are changing rapidly. As of today, March 19, 2020, Alameda County has implemented a “Shelter in Place” order, directing all residents to stay at home except to meet essential needs. “Essential Businesses” can remain open and are strongly encouraged to do so. Community Health Centers like the West Oakland Health Council (WOHC) are considered an “Essential Business” under the terms of the order.
As a result of this WOHC remains open to deliver healthcare services to our community during this public health crisis. While we have modified schedules, and are moving more towards phone visits and care, WOHC’s basic message is “We are here at your service.” We are open until 5 pm during the week and until noon on Saturday at the 700 Adeline clinic.
