Cares' Hall

Cares' Hall is an opportunity to learn about the resources your community has to offer including:

  • Health Insurance and Basic Food (SNAP) Enrollment
  • COVID-19 education with mask and at-home test distribution while supplies last

Safety is our first priority for everyone attending our EndoCares events. Even with every reasonable precaution to keep attendees
safe as outlined by health authorities, the Society cannot fully eliminate all risks of harm to attendees or participants and guarantee their safety, especially from risks posed by COVID-19 and its variant strains. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own safety. We ask that all attendees wear a mask at all times during the event and to not attend if they are experiencing the following signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or its variant strains that include:

  • fever or chills
  • cough
  • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • new loss of taste or smell
  • sore throat
  • congestion or runny nose
  • nausea or vomiting
  • diarrhea

Sea Mar Community Health Centers continues to follow updates about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) from the CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and local and state public health agencies.
