  • COVID Guidelines
    Who can come with you to your visit?

    Patients coming to an outpatient clinic are allowed to bring at least one individual to accompany them. Additional people with the patient will be at the discretion of the provider and clinic.

    For more information, please visit our COVID Alerts page and click on Visitor Policy.


    Please wear a mask or face covering when you come in.

    Don't worry, we'll be wearing them too!

    Please do not wear a mask with valves or vents. These protect you but don't protect others.


    Everyone will be screened for illness before entering.

    You will be asked questions about COVID symptoms (fever or chills, shortness of breath, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.)

    If you are feeling sick, or have been near someone who you know has COVID-19, please call us before your visit. Your care team may give you advice over the phone or ask you to be seen at a different location.


    You will be asked to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer when you enter any CHA building.
