We have increased our cleaning and sanitizing protocols to a minimum of three times per day. In addition, staff will frequently sanitize high-touch surfaces throughout the day, including door handles, counter tops, and furniture. Hand sanitizing stations are installed in the lobby of each imaging center for patient/visitor use. Additional signage has been posted is to educate all visitors on the importance of germ management such as effective handwashing and sneezing/coughing strategies. The products used to clean common spaces and surfaces at our locations are effective in preventing the spread of common viruses, including COVID-19.
As an enhanced safety precaution, we are asking all our patients & visitors at the time of exam scheduling and upon arrival to our clinics the following CDC-approved questions:
1. Have you recently traveled to an area with known local spread of COVID-19?
2. Have you come into close contact (within 6 feet) with someone who has a laboratory confirmed COVID – 19 diagnosis in the past 14 days?
3. Do you have a fever (greater than 100.4 F or 38.0 C) OR symptoms of lower respiratory illness such as cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing?
If the answer is yes to any of the above questions, we will ask the patient/visitor to reschedule the exam to a later time when symptoms have subsided, or they have been assessed by a qualified healthcare professional.
