💥STOMP💥OUT💥COVID💥

Feeling sniffly after socializing at Pride? 😅🤧 Lyon-Martin has got you covered as a COVID-19 Test to Treat (T2T) Site! 🧪😷‬🦠

✨✨SAME-DAY access to COVID vaccines, testing, and treatment at Lyon-Martin! ✨✨

No insurance or proof of a positive test required for treatment, especially if you`re already receiving care here or unable to reach a primary care provider.

TESTING: If you`re experiencing COVID symptoms or had close contact with someone with COVID, we recommend testing 2-5 days after exposure. Schedule a test by calling us at (415) 565-7667 or use an at-home rapid test. For negative results, re-testing within 24-48 hours is advised.

SYMPTOMS: Keep an eye out for fever, chills, cough, fatigue, body aches, headache, loss of taste/smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath*, or difficulty breathing*. *In case of high fever (>102.2 F) or severe respiratory distress, call 911 or go to the ER.

COVID TREATMENT: If you test positive using an at-home rapid test or PCR test, immediate treatment is crucial. Connect with our on-call provider at (415) 565-7667 for evaluation and a Paxlovid prescription.

Don`t underestimate early, mild symptoms; they can worsen quickly after you’ve already missed the treatment window! Act swiftly to receive Paxlovid, which, when taken during the treatment window, is 81% effective in preventing mortality and 67% effective in preventing hospitalization due to COVID. Let`s protect each other!

To discuss treatment options, call us at (415) 565-7667 and request same-day COVID treatment. Our nurse or provider will call you back ASAP to evaluate you for Paxlovid.

Remember, getting tested as soon as symptoms arise allows timely administration of Paxlovid, preventing severe symptoms from developing and the spread of disease to others! 🦠

Outside clinic hours? No worries! Select option 3 when calling for urgent care to speak with our on-call answering services.

Your health matters to us, Lyon-Martin Community Health Services is here for you! 🖤😷 #STOMPOUTCOVID

We proposed an expansion of our mental health program to meet the needs of our communities, a request for $800K/year for a pilot program that would not only expand access to by us for us therapy, psychiatry, case management, and substance use disorder care, but also our urgent/drop in crisis intervention services that is crucial to preventing suicide, overdose, and unnecessary death in our communities. Our waitlists have grown wildly long and there’s very few gender affirming external resources that also accept medi-cal or slides low enough to actually be accessible for our communities living in abject poverty.

The Mayor failed to include our ask in her budget. Now we need to tell the Board of Supervisors about the mental health emergency happening in our communities and why we need their support to hire more QTI & BIPOC providers to meet the need!

Let`s stand in solidarity and demand the city act in alignment with their spoken commitment of LIFTING UP AND SUPPORTING ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR OUR MOST VILNERABLE QTI COMMUNITIES!

For TDOV this year, we are just grateful to be alive. There are few trans people who are feeling joy this year as our bodies have become a public battleground for the right’s fundamentalist agenda. Though we have always been in their crosshairs, this level of public hate feels unprecedented. Our organizing and gathering spaces are being taken away, our life saving medicine banned, our lives are on the line. Purely existing is an act of resistance—we know because of how damn hard it is to exist right now, we feel it in our bones, in our weary hearts. Our ears burn and our eyes dart on high alert while we navigate this hateful world and continue to hope to find others like us, to build family, support each other in growth, and secure the material resources we need to persist.

We are seeing unprecedented demand for our gender affirming services, particularly our mental health services as trans people and their families relocate to safer parts of the country—we need your support to meet this demand.

As one of the only 100% trans led clinics in the world we’re feeling the pressure and we need the support to keep doing what we do for all who need it. 80% of our staff is Trans, 75% are BIPOC, the majority of our clinicians are Trans themselves. Lyon-Martin truly embodies by us, for us care. And, we’re tired. Can we get a trans day of rest? Despite increased funding opportunities for this work, it continues to feel like we are forced to fight for breadcrumbs and pitted against our collaborators friends and partner organizations to secure funding. This work is not meant to thrive within capitalism, especially when acting from a place of honoring values. Donations go a long way and can support our staff in feeling more spaciousness, resourcefulness, and capacity to take on the challenge of expansion.

Please consider donating to Lyon-Martin today to keep by us, for us gender affirming care safe and accessible to our clients new and old.

Thank you for trusting us, for being in community with us, and for standing alongside us in this pivotal moment in our history.
