Dear patients of Associates in Central Ohio OB/GYN,

 

If you have an upcoming appointment by following National Guidelines help us keep our patients, staff, and physicians safe and lower the risk of influenza and COVID-19 (Coronavirus) by following these precautions:

 

* For the safety of our patients and staff all patients are required to wear a face covering.

 

* If you have a fever AND cough or have been diagnosed with any respiratory illness in the past 7 days, or have been exposed to any individual known to be exposed to COVID-19, please contact our office before arriving for your appointment. We may encourage you to stay home and to reschedule your appointment. (If you have taken something for a fever in the past 48 hours, this constitutes as a fever)

 

* If your symptoms are causing shortness of breath and difficulty breathing, please call your primary care provider for instructions. Otherwise, please stay at home and treat your symptoms with rest and over-the-counter medications.

 

* In an effort to do our part we request that you do not bring any other adults or children with you to your appointment.

 

*Upon checking in you will be asked to return to your car. The medical assistant will then call you when they are ready to take you to the exam room.

 

* According to the CDC, non-essential travel for pregnant women is not recommended.

 

Thank you,

 

 

The physicians and providers of ACOOG
