Is this your first time visiting us and you don't know how to get around the place?  We have two Information Desks, staffed by some of our most helpful and valuable volunteers: Veterans and Retirees who are still proudly serving today with the Travis Retiree Activities Office and the American Red Cross. The North Information Desk (Inpatient or "Flagpole" side of DGMC) is located on Level 1.  The South Information Desk (Clinics or "Palm tree" side of DGMC) can be found on Level 2.

DGMC FLU HOTLINE: (707) 816-5555

A few simple tips to prevent flu and colds:

- Avoid close contact with people who are sick or if you are sick;
 
- If possible, stay home from work, school and errands when sick;

- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (or the sleeve of your arm) when coughing or sneezing;

- Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs;

- Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth;

- Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food, and;

- If you need to report to DGMC for flu-like symptoms, please don a mask located at each entrance and proceed directly to your provider.
