Wearing Face Coverings and Washing Your Hands

Starting at 12:01 p.m. on Friday, July 3rd, 2020, Texas Executive Order GA-29 goes into effect.

Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also issued a proclamation giving mayors and county judges the ability to impose restrictions on some outdoor gatherings of over 10 people, and making it mandatory that, with certain exceptions, people cannot be in groups larger than ten and must maintain six feet of social distancing from others.

If it feels like it takes a long time to wash all of the dirt and germs off your hands with soap and water, that means you are probably washing your hands correctly.

Clean hands can stop germs from spreading from one person to another and throughout an entire community—from your home and workplace to childcare facilities and hospitals. Below are the steps everyone should take to correctly wash their hands:

1) Before you use any soap, turn on the faucet and wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold).

2) Turn the water off, and then apply soap into both of your palms.

3) Rub your palms together until they produce lather, then rub the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

4) Scrub your hands for at least 30 seconds. You can sing the chorus of your favorite song or you can slowly count from one to thirty.

5) Now it is time to turn on the faucet again, rinse your hands well, but keep the water running!

6) Dry your hands using napkins, paper towels, or a hand towel.

7) Use the napkins, paper towels, or hand towel to turn off the faucet, so you do not accidentally get any germs on your hands.

8) Use the napkins, paper towels, or hand towel to open any door (if you are in a bathroom or any shared public restroom) and throw away the towel or napkin in the nearest trash can or receptacle. Clean hands are healthy hands!

Social distancing guidelines will prevent many of our local clinic lobbies from having full seats, so it is vital for parents to bring their kids now (in May and in June), before August and the start of next school year.  The NET Health Immunizations Clinic is available for all students to get their back-to-school vaccines updated NOW. 

Vaccines are available for kids of all ages to stay up-to-date on scheduled vaccines, so that parents can plan ahead to decide when to bring their K-12th grade children, and so that graduating seniors can obtain their meningitis vaccines before going to college.

Located at 815 North Broadway Avenue in Tyler, the NET Health Immunizations Clinic performs temperature checks of all our employees and all customers, to make sure everyone practices safe social distancing guidelines. Parents are strongly urged to please call us first to verify the status of your health insurance coverage.  

When a family arrives, please call our main phone number before coming to our front entrance, so we can greet you and perform our safety check at the front entrance.

The NET Health Immunizations Clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.  

On Wednesdays, our hours are 8:00am – 11:00am and 1:00pm – 6:00pm.  

Our phone number is (903) 510 - 5604, and you can email us at "ContactUs@netphd.org".

The Carter BloodCare location in Tyler is dangerously low on blood and our request is to learn if you can donate blood at a community blood drive or at their main location at 815 South Baxter Drive in Tyler. No one ever knows if they will be in a situation when themselves, a family member, or a loved one may need a blood donation.

NET Health recently created two localized PSA's to convey the overall message for the need of anyone and everyone who is medically eligible to donate blood and rebuild our local blood supply.

The Spanish version featured below includes on-air anchor for La Vida TV & MiFuZion FM, Ivette Zavarce, and President of the Tyler Hispanic Business Alliance, Dolores Price.

Click here to view the English version features NET Health CEO George Roberts, Tyler City Manager Ed Broussard, Smith County Judge Nathaniel Moran, and John Tyler High School head football coach, Ricklan Holmes.
