Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

March 13, 2020

 At ClareMedica, we are staying up to date on information and best practices as recommended by the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), so that we can continue to offer our patients better care, responsibly.

 

New information about COVID-19 and preventative measures are unfolding each day, we strongly encourage you to visit the CDC website to stay informed. The CDC is regularly monitoring and updating their website.

 

Testing for Coronavirus has been very limited to CDC laboratories. Local labs are only now providing test kits to physician offices on a limited basis. When you call a ClareMedica clinic, please ask about availability of a test kit.  We will continue to closely monitor the situation.  If you are experiencing symptoms of the virus, please call

COVID-19 Call Center (24/7): 1 (866) 779-6121

to be directed to a testing facility close to you, and for the latest information on care and self-quarantine.

 

What can I expect as a ClareMedica patient on my next visit?

Patients will receive a call from our offices prior to appointments, regardless of the health reason for the visit. This call will help us pre-screen patients for symptoms and risk factors to mitigate the spread of the virus.

 

When you arrive at the clinic, if you are displaying any symptoms similar to those of COVID-19 we will provide you with a protective mask to wear while you wait. Or, upon assessment, at the discretion of the health care team, you may be directed to a testing facility.

 

Our priority is your care and safety and the care and safety of all of our
patients and caregivers.
