  • Staff should limit visits from non-essential visitors like Pharmaceutical Reps
  • Staff should wipe down and clean and disinfect working areas more frequently
  • Staff should be more vigilant, proactive and observant of patients with symptoms especially those most at risk – the elderly and the chronically ill
  • Each clinic should designate a room or an area to isolate patients with symptoms
  • We’re restricting patients to bringing only one family member or friend during visits
  • Please continue to follow universal precautions of washing hands, no personal contact, don’t touch your face or mouth and if sick, stay at home or seek medical care
