COVID-19 Protocol- updated 8.11.2021
To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we require that patients who are not fully vaccinated for Covid- 19 present evidence of a negative COVID-19 test administered within 7 days prior to surgery. At home test kits results will NOT be accepted.
The testing requirement is waived for patients who are fully vaccinated and do not show signs of Covid-19. Patients must present a copy of their vaccination card prior to surgery. People are considered fully vaccinated:
2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated.
In addition to adhering to CDC guidelines for PPE, sanitation, and social distancing, surgery center staff is in the process of being vaccinated for COVID-19.
