Preventing the spread of COVID-19
There are simple yet effective ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you test positive
- Get vaccinated against COVID-19
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Practice social distancing techniques (avoid shaking hands or other forms of direct contact with others to limit potential spread, stay 6 feet away from others in public spaces, do not attend any gatherings or public spaces if possible)
- If you come to the clinic for an appointment, you will be required to wear a mask to help protect our staff and other patients
People ages 65+: Older adults are often more severely affected by COVID-19 and should therefore take extra precautions.
People with underlying conditions: People with chronic health conditions and people with compromised immune systems are more likely to be severely affected by COVID-19. Underlying conditions include diabetes, high blood pressure, and asthma, among others.
