From the COMMUNITY CANCER CENTER staff | Published March 23, 2020
While our cancer treatment services at the CCC are open and operating normally, to support social distancing recommendations, we are exercising a temporary cancellation of all group meetings, classes, workshops, and events. The CCC staff has individually reached out to patients, and program participants, to notify them of the temporary postponement.
The CCC continues to make every effort to provide excellent care for all our patients, including establishing a heightened rotation frequency of facility sanitization and strict monitoring of all visitors entering the facility. We will continue to keep patients and families up to date about any changes to our services, programs, and operating hours.
For more information about postponed programs, classes, workshops, or events please contact our Outreach directly at 541-672-7000.
The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority! It is safe for patients to receive necessary care. If you have a scheduled appointment at the CCC, please plan to keep this appointment unless you are experiencing symptoms like fever, cough, congestion, sore throat, runny nose, muscle aches and pains or shortness of breath.
If you are a patient who is experiencing these symptoms, please call our medical team at (541) 673-2267 x5000 weekdays from 8 am - 5 pm.
Below are answers to frequently asked questions about COVID-19 that relate to our cancer patients in treatment, our staff, and the community. The information on this page is subject to modification, pending guidance from the CDC, WHO and/or Public Health – Douglas County, Oregon.

Can I bring children and family members/caregivers to my appointment(s)?
We ask that support persons please refrain from attending patient treatment appointments. Until further notice, only patients are allowed in to enter the CCC facility.
What should I do if I have cold or flu symptoms?
If you have active symptoms, such as fever, cough, congestion, sore throat, runny nose, muscle aches / pains or shortness of breath, please call our medical team at (541) 673-2267 before your appointment. Our nursing staff will provide guidance about whether you should attend your appointment or wait until your symptoms are gone.
Are cancer patients at greater risk of contracting COVID-19?
Yes! Cancer patients are at a higher risk of contracting viruses due to their compromised immune systems when battling cancer.
What is the CCC doing to protect patients?
We are taking the following steps:
  • Temporary cancellations of all group meetings, classes, workshops, and events to comply with social distancing. Check our website at for event information or call Community Outreach at (541) 672-7200
  • Extra cleaning: All surfaces throughout the building that have potential contact are routinely cleaned throughout the day.
  • Hand sanitizers can be found throughout the building. We are requiring our patients to use sanitizer when entering and leaving the building. 
  • CCC Patients, or visitors, with a temperature greater than 100F temp and are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as a cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, and have an appointment at the CCC, please call us immediately at (541) 673-2267 x5000 so we may help you assess the situation and advise you properly.
  • Only patients in treatment are allowed in the center.
  • Ask for a mask while visiting the CCC if you are not feeling well.
Should I wear a mask when on the CCC campus?
You should wear a mask in the facility only if staff tell you to. When you enter the facility, you will be screened for respiratory symptoms. If staff determine you have symptoms, they will give you a mask and tell you how to wear it properly. If worn correctly, masks can help decrease the spread of respiratory viruses and bacteria.
If my family members/caregivers and I do not have a fever or respiratory symptoms, should we wear a mask in public?
No, if you don’t have symptoms, there is no need to wear a mask, according to the CDC. Masks are intended to prevent patients who are showing symptoms from spreading disease to others.
Should I be worried about getting infected with COVID-19 at the CCC?
The CCC has extensive and thorough infection control procedures, and we continue to do everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our community. We have extensive protocols and systems in place to keep all patients, visitors, and healthcare workers safe.
Have there been any COVID-19 exposures at the CCC?
No. We are following the CDC and Department of Health guidelines for notifying people who are at risk of exposure and giving them guidance on next steps. Our Facility Manager has increased the frequency of cleaning of high-touch surfaces such as door handles, seating areas, handrails, and elevator buttons. The disinfectants that we use are effective at killing COVID-19.
Please be assured that the CCC has a vigorous and effective infection prevention protocol to safeguard the health and safety of our patients and staff.
Is there anything I can do to keep myself, my family and friends safe?
The most important steps to take are:
  • Avoid going to gatherings with large numbers of people; heed social distancing guidelines.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Practice good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Plan how you will take care of sick family members. Make plans for childcare if you are sick or if your child is sick. Have a thermometer at home so you can check for fever if you or a loved one feels ill.
  • Try to get a few extra months’ worth of your prescription medications, if possible.
  • Stay informed – check the CDC site regularly for new updates.
How is the community working to slow the spread of COVID-19?
Douglas County Health officials have established a hotline (541) 464-6550 for people with questions. The call center will be staffed with health care professionals who can answer questions from the public. Call center hours will be 8am-7:30pm seven days per week until further notice.
