We are continually monitoring advice and information from the CDC and MN Department of Health regarding the latest infection control protocols for COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We value the safety and health of all our staff, patients, and families. We are taking extra steps to ensure patient safety while receiving care at our office. All providers and staff will be wearing masks to help protect patients and themselves. We have implemented a variety of other new protocols to ensure the safety of our patients, their families, and our team, during this pandemic.
Please read through the following information carefully to prepare for your upcoming appointment. We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to seeing you!
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
You will need to reschedule your appointment:
If you or anyone you have come into contact with has tested positive for COVID-19
If you or anyone in your household has symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (fever, dry cough, runny nose/upper respiratory infection, sore throat, loss of smell/taste, extreme fatigue, muscle aches, shortness of breath, family sickness)
To prevent added paperwork and limit face-to-face contact with our team, please complete your Patient Registration online.
ARRIVING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
Bring a mask (cloth or disposable), insurance cards, and valid photo ID.
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer and put on your mask before entering.
Please do not arrive early to the office. Arrive at the time of your appointment to minimize the number of people in the lobby at one time.
Please do not arrive with any family members or friends, unless you are a parent/guardian bringing a minor for their appointment.
Parents, guardians, and drivers: please wait in your vehicle to limit the number of patients in our office.
ADDED WELLNESS MEASURES
All providers and staff are following strict protocols, including daily temperature readings, hand hygiene when entering/exiting rooms, sanitizing of surfaces throughout the day, and the use of facemasks.
We continue to have those of our team who are able to work remotely do so. We have also placed limitations on the number of team members in any given area of the office to continue best social distances practices.
We’re adding clear “sneeze guard” shields at our reception areas and are asking patients to wait in their vehicles instead of our waiting rooms.
