SNPC Doctors are monitoring the activity around the world, the USA and Clark County. We encourage you to stay informed by following your local news and CDC/WHO websites.
WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW:
- Get your flu shot (recommended for all persons 6 months and above): contracting both viruses at the same time can be deadly. Flu activity is still high in Nevada.
- Wash your hands frequently: Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available used alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth or baby/children with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with sick people and crowded places. Coronavirus can be contagious up to 6 feet.
- Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others, especially if you have fever, cough and/or shortness of breath.
- Cover your cough and sneeze into a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, cough into your sleeve and wash your clothing as soon as possible.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- TELEHEALTH: Take advantage of our telehealth option. Our doctors here can do video and audio office visits with you while you are at home. If the situation in our county worsens, you can stay home and be seen and treated by our doctors from your phone or computer.
- Wear a mask when outside the house and especially if you have a cough.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE SITUATION AND PROVIDE THE MOST UP TO DATE CARE AND PRECAUTIONS. We are here for you and your family to answer questions 24/7.

Dr. Zulich and SNPC Staff
3/27/20: We have primarily converted to telehealth visits. Our staff is here 8am-5pm. We encourge those behind on vaccinations to come in asap. Tomorrow might be worse than today.
3/18/20: Our clinic remains open and we are doing well checks and will continue to stay open as long as possible. We encourage you to come in and get your physical done and get your shots because this situation is rapidly evolving and we do not know what our options will be tomorrow. Most of our sick visits have been converted to telehealth (video visits) in an effort to create social distancing and reduce community spread. I have requested that a handful come to the office for Coronavirus testing. We do have test kits. We are bleaching the rooms between patients.Please do not come to the office in person requesting testing as you will put yourself, community, family and health care workers at risk. Dr. Zulich will first screen you over the phone. We are here for you. We are not going anywhere.
3/16/20: We kindly ask all sick visits to arrange for telehealth visits. Dr. Zulich will determine whether you should come in for in-person evaluation and if you need to be tested for Coronavirus. If you are due for shots please come in asap and get them. You need the protection.
3/13/20: The number of cases is increasing in Clark County. We do not expect this to slow down soon. This is just the beginning. We now have ability to do a limited number of tests in our office thanks to cooperation from our local laboratories Quest Diagnostics and Lab Corp.
3/12/20: We have 1 confirmed case and 4 presumptive cases. We have testing kits but they are limited and will be used for patients who fit the CDC criteria for testing and who have symptoms that raise suspicion. We are hopeful that we will be able to test more people in the near future. For the time being please avoid public gatherings and stay home if you can. If you have a cough, you should wear a mask to avoid contaminating surfaces and infecting others
3/11/20: Please note that CVS is now waving the delivery fee for medications. If you do not use CVS then call your local pharmacy and ask about their delivery options or emergency plan.
3/9/20: We have both a sick side and well side with separate doors to enter and exit the building. Any patient with respiratory symptoms of any kind go straight into the room and will not spend time in the waiting room. Our team are bleaching our sick side rooms after each patient. If patients are high risk for exposure to Coronavirus we will see them outside the building. We appreciate all of your cooperation.
