COVID-19 Patient-Specific Guidelines

The coronavirus pandemic is rapidly evolving, and the medical community continues to learn more about the virus and how it is spread.

We are monitoring CDC recommendations and adjusting our recommendations as necessary.

Everyone, including individuals with medical conditions, should use basic infection prevention guidelines: 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • If you haven’t done so, it’s not too late to get a flu vaccine.

Additional guidance for patients with specific medical conditions or in certain categories can be viewed below.
