A doctor at Riverside Medical Clinic’s Day Street location tested positive for COVID-19 and health investigators Friday were working to track down patients with whom the doctor may have interacted.
Anyone who may have come into contact with the physician, including medical staff at the clinic at 6405 Day St. in Riverside, near the Moreno Valley border, was being notified.
“This is an unfortunate situation and we are taking all steps necessary to protect the patients and staff,” Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser said in a statement released Friday afternoon.
The physician, who was not identified, is expected to recover, county health officials said.
Testing for patients that may have been exposed to the virus will take place on Saturday.
Judy Carpenter, president and COO of Riverside Medical Clinic, said the seven locations remain open and the staff is “committed to ensuring that you receive the highest quality of care like we have over the past 85 years. Our patient safety remains our highest priority and we assure you that we have taken every measure to protect you and your family’s health.”
