Extra Precautions Keep You Protected During In-Person Care

Screenings for Everyone Upon Arrival
Everyone — our team members, patients and visitors — has their temperature checked and is asked screening questions upon arrival.
Separate Care Areas for Anyone With COVID-19 Symptoms
If anyone appears to have coronavirus symptoms when they meet our screening team upon arrival, they’ll be cared for in an entirely separate wing of our facility for everyone’s protection. We take extra precautions to be sure that anyone who has a COVID-19 diagnosis or symptoms is cared for separately from other patients and guests.
Face Masks for All
All staff, patients and visitors must wear face masks over the nose and mouth. If you don’t have a cloth face covering, we’re happy to provide you with one when you check in.
Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone should wear a cloth face covering in public settings.
Keep in mind that face masks are not recommended for people who are having difficulty breathing, are unconscious or are unable to remove them without assistance. They should also not be used by children under age 2.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for All Staff
All AdventHealth team members and physicians are wearing medical-grade masks and gloves when caring for patients. We also have plenty of personal protective equipment on hand for those working in emergency rooms, such as additional face shields and gowns. Our PPE is refreshed as often as necessary, and our team members wear fresh masks, gloves and other equipment each day.
Continuous Cleaning and Disinfecting
We clean and disinfect our lobby and patient rooms continuously throughout the day. We also sanitize high-touch surfaces, such as light switches, countertops and door handles.
Social Distancing Measures
To help everyone practice safe social distancing, we have rearranged our waiting rooms to ensure people stay 6 feet apart, using floor markings and indicating which chairs are off-limits.
