Prior to Your Appointment
Please notify your provider’s office before your appointment if:
- You have been exposed to someone who has tested positive with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
- You are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, or a combination of symptoms:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Or at least two of these symptoms:
- Chills, or repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
If You Have Symptoms
All patients (whether or not they have been tested for COVID-19) that are experiencing symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath will be asked to self-isolate for at least 7-10 days after the onset of symptoms.
We will screen every patient and visitor at check-in to identify and limit potential exposure to COVID-19 in our practices. Screening involves providing health checks and answering a few questions.
Universal masking is one of the best ways to limit transmission of the virus. With that in mind, everyone – including patients, visitors and staff – is required to wear a mask while in the practice. We will provide you a mask at check-in. Visitors in Texas Health Physicians Group clinics are allowed to wear their own masks. Bandanas, gaiters and masks with valves are prohibited; visitors with those masks will be asked to replace them with a Texas Health issued mask.
Reconfigured seating areas to allow for safe distancing. Patients are asked to sit with their accompanied visitor.
Patient exam rooms are disinfected between every patient. Waiting rooms, bathrooms, chairs, door knobs and other surface areas are cleaned throughout the day.
Increased hand hygiene practices for patients, visitors and staff. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the practice.
Staff self-monitor for symptoms including temperature checks; symptomatic caregivers must stay home.
Virtual visits are another option for receiving quality care. Virtual visits can be used for allergies, cold, cough, migraines, seasonal flu, rash, stomachache and more.
