We are continuing our routine cleaning and disinfection procedures as these procedures are recommended for protecting patients from COVID-19 in health centers. Any surface, supplies, or equipment located within the patient area will continue to be disinfected or discarded between patients.


We are providing extra training for staff about the importance of hand hygiene, face masks, respiratory hygiene, proper use of PPE, cough etiquette and cleaning protocols.


We are encouraging patients and staff to share all questions and concerns related to COVID-19. Don't be afraid to use your voice. It is okay to ask staff questions about treatment changes and ways to protect yourself and your family.
