VA Central California Health Care System


 

Announcements:

COVID-19 Information:

  • Symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath can be caused by the flu and the common cold as well as COVID-19. At this time, the flu presents a greater risk in the United States than COVID-19, however, that could change if COVID-19 starts circulating widely. VA encourages everyone to get a flu shot if they have not yet received one to protect against flu and to help minimize demand on health care services.
  • Veterans who have symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath should call their local VA medical center before seeking care. VA’s phone- and video-based telecare services can be used to avoid exposure to additional germs, keep from spreading germs to others, and eliminate a trip to VA.
  • There is not yet a vaccine or medication to treat COVID-19. The best way to prevent an infection is to avoid being exposed in the

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

A medicine cat’s main job is to heal their fellow Clanmates of their wounds and sicknesses. They have many ways of doing so, mostly through herbs and berries kept in the medicine cat’s herb store inside their den. It has been noted by Erin Hunter that these remedies should never be used on pet cats, and that sick pets should be seen to by a vet instead.[1]
