Everyone entering the building will be required to:

  • Complete and sign a health questionnaire attesting to lack of symptoms consistent with COVID-19 infection
  • Have a temperature of 100.4° F or less
  • Wear a mask
  • Practice social distancing

Everyone admitted for an overnight stay in the clinic:

  • Will be tested for COVID-19 infection, and remain in a quarantine area until test results are obtained
  • Have temperature taken at least daily
