Patient Information Related to Coronavirus
We continue to monitor the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As a healthcare provider, we have an obligation to our patients, providers, staff, and community. The CDC and KDHE recommendations are updated regularly and therefore our practices will change as needed to remain in compliance with these agencies recommendations to monitor and manage the spread of the virus. The following processes will be implemented:
Screening and temperature checks prior to being roomed for your appointment or as a visitor to the building.
- Have you had a fever of 100.1F or higher in the last 48 hours?
- Have you recently been experiencing a dry cough, chest congestion, or shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, loss of taste and smell?
- Have you traveled to or from North Dakota on or after October 21?
- Have you traveled to or from the country of Andorra on or after October 21?
- Have you attended/traveled to a mass gathering of 500 people or greater where masks were not worn and 6ft of distance could not be obtained?
- Have you been on a cruise ship or river cruise on or after March 2020?
- Have you received any notification from Public Health Officials (State or Local) that you are a close contact of a laboratory confirmed Covid-19 case?
- Do you have knowledge that you had contact with anyone in the past 30 days who has been quarantined or placed on home or self -monitoring or has been ill with a fever, cough or difficulty breathing due to possible exposure to COVID-19? Has any family member or close friend tested positive for COVID-19?
If the patient answers YES to any of the questions above, the patient will not receive any services and they will be instructed to return to their vehicles, call our office to reschedule their appointment and call their primary healthcare provider. A minimum of 14 days is required before rescheduling the appointment.
We require you wear a MASK when in the clinic
Due to the rapid increase in COVID numbers in the community, MAO will require ALL patients to wear a mask while in the building. If the patient refuses to wear a mask, they will be asked to leave and reschedule for a later date.
All visitors will be screened in the same manner as the patients.
Visitors will be limited to one person, preferably necessary to make medical decisions.
Visitors answering yes to exposure or respiratory symptoms will not be allowed in clinic.
Please call 316-630-9300 if you have questions or concerns.
