White-Wilson’s Immediate Care temporarily closes due to Coronavirus precaution

White-Wilson Medical Center temporarily closed their Fort Walton Beach Immediate Care Clinic on Wednesday, February 26th for a few hours to determine if an individual who entered their clinic had any potential exposure to COVID-19. This action was taken as a precautionary measure. All other locations and departments remained open and patients seeking immediate care were directed to other White-Wilson departments.

Here’s is the statement from White-Wilson:

“Today, an individual entered our clinic who had traveled internationally and was experiencing flu-like symptoms. The appropriate steps were immediately taken to evaluate this individual and any potential exposure to COVID-19. We worked alongside the Florida Department of Health to ensure the safety of all and elected to temporarily close the clinic as a precautionary measure.”

“While at this time there are no known cases of COVID-19 in our community or our state, we will continue to take every precaution to ensure that our patients and staff are safe. We ask that individuals who are experiencing any respiratory or flu-like symptoms and have recently traveled internationally or have been in contact with someone who has traveled internationally stay at home and contact the Florida Department of Health at 850-833-9065 for further instruction.”

We will update this article as information becomes available.
