South Clinic Reopens COVID-19 Testing for Tribe & Employees
COVID-19 response is constantly changing. Please check Cow Creek Public Health page for most up to date information.
In response to the Omicron variant of COVID-19 causing a surge in infections regionally across Southern Oregon, Cow Creek Health and Wellness and Cow Creek Public Health are reopening COVID-19 testing, though only for Cow Creek Tribal members and employees of the Tribe.
Cow Creek Public Health testing and vaccine plans are posted on our Public Health page, www.cowcreek-nsn.gov/public-health. Check before you go
Beginning Tuesday, January 25, 2022, COVID-19 testing will be administered at the South Clinic Drive-Thru site, located behind Seven Feathers Casino Resort and next to the Cow Creek Health and Wellness Center South Clinic at 480 Wartahoo Lane in Canyonville.
Testing is open to Cow Creek Tribal members, members of other federally recognized Tribes, employees of the Cow Creek Tribe and all of its Tribal businesses, and direct household members of any of the above listed groups, as well as existing patients of Cow Creek Health & Wellness.
Testing will be available Monday through Friday from 8AM-4:30PM (daily closure from 12PM-1PM for lunch). Those in need of a test will be required to make an appointment by calling (541) 672-8533 and press #4 for the South Clinic. An appointment must be made for each person in the vehicle requiring testing. If no one is able to take your call, please leave a message with name and phone number; each message will be returned promptly or next business day if after hours.
Each appointment should take approximately 30 minutes. Upon arrival for testing, CCPH asks that all persons remain in their vehicle with masks on at all times. Testing is not available for anyone under the age of 2.
Testing is free of charge, but each patient will be asked to provide insurance information whether they are insured or uninsured.
CCPH is preparing to continue COVID testing at the South Clinic through Friday, February 25, estimating they will be able to test 90 people per day at the Drive-Thru. In August and September, during the Delta variant surge in Douglas County, CCPH was overwhelmed with the need for community testing, and tested upwards of 200 people per day for COVID-19.
Douglas County continues to report an increase in positive cases of COVID-19. From Saturday, January 15 through Friday, January 21, a total of 841 new cases of COVID-19 were reported, with a seven-day average of 120 cases per day.
Those who are not a Cow Creek Tribal member or employee of the Tribe can receive four free at-home COVID tests per household from the U.S. Government. Click here to learn more about the program.
With the temporary shift of focus to COVID-19 testing, and a lower demand for vaccinations, the Mobile Vaccine Site in Roseburg, located across the street from the Cow Creek Government Offices, will close beginning Monday, January 24.
Cow Creek Health and Wellness Center will continue to administer adult COVID vaccines and boosters to established patients Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment. Call (541) 672-8533 and press #3 for the North Clinic to schedule. Pediatric COVID-19 vaccines, which were available Fridays only at the Mobile Vaccine Site in Roseburg, are on hold through the end of February.
Any adult or child in need of a COVID-19 vaccine or booster in Douglas County can visit the Oregon Health Authority Vaccine Site, located near the Roseburg Public Library, open seven days per week from 10AM-5PM. No appointments are required.
