Please note the following recommendations and policy updates.

1. One Visitor per Patient: Effective immediately, for the safety of our patients and staff, NO visitors are allowed in the clinic.

Exceptions:

  • ONE visitor is allowed to accompany patient to a 1st trimester dating/viability appointment.
  • ONE visitor is allowed to accompany the patient to an ultrasound appointment for 20-week OB ultrasound appointments.
  • BOTH parents are allowed for newborn appointments.

2. We recommend wearing a mask to your appointment (as well as your accompanying visitor).

3. Starting May 4, 2020, all patients admitted to the hospital or admitted for labor and delivery, will be tested for the rapid COVID-19 virus. The test will provide a result within 2 hours; this testing is to help determine appropriate personal protective equipment for providers while taking care of patients in the hospital. The COVID 19 testing in no way will testing impact a patient’s obstetrical care.

4. You may want to discuss with your employer your options for not working or working exclusively from home during the last 2-3 weeks of your pregnancy. This would be to reduce chances of infection during labor and delivery.
