We are requiring patients and anyone accompanying them to arrive for their appointment with a face covering, (such as a scarf, bandana, t-shirt, handmade mask or other) that covers their nose and mouth already in place. If they or their guests arrive without one, they will be asked to return to their car to put one on or reschedule their appointment. We are unable to issue surgical masks to patients at this time. As such, beginning on the morning of April 8th, we will require patients and visitors to arrive for their appointment already wearing a face covering.
