Be Smart.
Stay Healthy.

You may be feeling concerned because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. As a healthcare provider, we prioritize your health and safety. No matter what. 

 

Patient Advisory

To protect the health and safety of our staff, patients, and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking precautionary measures at our health centers.  We request that patients come alone to their appointment(s).


We know that this is not always possible and that for some visit types a driver is required. When it is safe to do so, we ask that drivers wait in the car rather than in our waiting room. Please call our Health Centers if you have questions or concerns about bringing people to your visit with us.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.

At Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, DC (PPMW), the health and safety of our patients, staff, and community is our top priority. 

At this time, we are not aware of any PPMW patients or staff members who have been diagnosed with COVID-19. PPMW will continue to follow the most current safety guidelines issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the DC, Maryland, and Virginia Departments of Health. We encourage everyone to observe proper precautions to protect against COVID-19, influenza (the flu), and other infectious diseases.


To help minimize any potential spread of COVID-19, PPMW is taking the following precautions:

  • Health centers are following the CDC's guidelines to protect patients and staff.
  • We are transitioning some appointments telehealth.
  • The 2020 Impact Gala is postponed until September.
  • The administrative have begun teleworking.

  • The Education team is planning virtual and remote sessions for institutions transitioning to remote learning.

  • Staff and volunteers will not be participating in health fairs or other volunteer events for the time being.
