Step up precautions when the virus is spreading in your community. - Assess and restock supplies now and on a regular schedule. • Communicate with patients. - Ask patients about symptoms during reminder calls. - Consider rescheduling non-urgent appointments. - Post signs at entrances and in waiting areas about prevention actions. • Prepare the waiting area and patient rooms. - Provide supplies—tissues, alcohol-based hand rub, soap at sinks, and trash cans. - Place chairs 3–6 feet apart, when possible. Use barriers (like screens), if possible. - If your office has toys, reading materials, or other communal objects, remove them or clean them regularly. When Patients Arrive • Place staff at the entrance to ask patients about their symptoms. - Provide symptomatic patients with tissues or facemasks to cover mouth and nose. - Limit non-patient visitors. • Separate sick patients with symptoms. - Allow patients to wait outside or in the car if they are medically able. - Create separate spaces in waiting areas for sick and well patients. - Place sick patients in a private room as quickly as possible. After Patients are Assessed • After patients leave, clean frequently touched surfaces using EPA-registered disinfectants—counters, beds, seating. • Provide at-home care instructions to patients with respiratory symptoms. Consider telehealth options for follow up. • Notify your health department of patients with COVID-19 symptoms.
