COVID-19 VIRUS UPDATE FROM NMASBHC: Regarding our organization and the state’s SBHCs

 

As our state’s public health response to the pandemic of COVID-19 continues to unfold, the New Mexico Alliance for School-Based Health Care and the school-based health centers we support are all in the process of discerning how to respond appropriately. This is a time for us to work together for the common good, and we stand ready to take whatever actions are necessary. The following are updates regarding both our organization and the state’s SBHCs.

 

NMASBHC:

In order to follow public health recommendations and keep our families and communities safe, NMASBHC offices will be closed until further notice. Staff and Board will be working remotely and electronically. You can reach staff via email (https://www.nmasbhc.org/about/board-staff/). All outside meetings, business travel and events will be postponed or held telephonically or digitally.

 

SBHCs:

Each medical entity that operates an SBHC and their host school must determine separately whether or not they can and will stay open during school closures. The Department of Health is working on a spreadsheet of open and closed SBHCs, and we will post it here as soon as it becomes available. We send our best wishes to all of the SBHCs as they work to adapt to this pandemic.
