Cougar Community Health will remain closed while the school is closed. This will allow us to have all hands on deck in the Riverton clinic. We ask everyone to call with symptoms they are experiencing to help people in Fremont County from needing to travel. This phone triage process is happening at all clinics, but specifically for Cougar Health the process is as follows:
Our efforts are to keep our Fremont County community safe, minimize travel, and minimize exposure.
If you wish to use the Cougar Community Health Center, you will need to attend the first time with your child. After the first visit, you have the option to give verbal consent for your child to be seen in the Cougar Community Health Center. Your child will never have an appointment at the Cougar Community Health Center without your permission.
EXCLUSION FROM SCHOOL DUE TO ILLNESS
For the welfare of all students, we ask that if your child does contract a communicable (transmittable) illness or condition, that you notify the school and keep your child at home until the threat of spreading is past such as a temperature under 100° F without the use of medication. For assistance in determining when to keep your children at home, please refer to the “American Academy of Pediatrics Recommendations for School Exclusion”.
