Thank you for choosing Planned Parenthood!
COVID-19 (coronavirus) and care at Planned Parenthood:
Some things we’re doing to keep you safe:
- We offer multiple ways to get care, including in-center visits and video visits with no-touch prescription pickup. Learn more here.
- Patients with respiratory symptoms (cough/shortness of breath) or a fever are kindly asked to reschedule their in-center visit until you’re feeling better.
- All patients and staff are given a temperature check before checking in for an appointment or work.
- Every patient is screened for symptoms at check-in.
- Most forms can be filled out electronically prior to the visit for a contact-free check in.
- All patients and staff are required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times while inside the health center.
- Patients are asked to adhere to social distancing rules by staying at least 6 feet away from others whenever possible.
- Patients will not be gathered in our waiting rooms together, but taken to an exam room as quickly as possible.
- Only patients with an appointment and staff are allowed in the health center. We’re sorry but this means you can not bring any guests, visitors, or children.
- All exam rooms are fully disinfected after each use.
- COVID-19 can be transmitted even before a person feels sick, meaning social distancing is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and others—stay 6 feet apart at all times.
- Quarantine immediately if you develop any symptoms.
- Always call ahead before seeking medical care. Call 911 or go to the ER if you have life-threatening symptoms such as difficulty breathing or confusion.
- False negative tests are common. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, you should quarantine even if you have had a negative test result.
- Wearing a cloth face mask (NOT a surgical mask or N95 respirator—those are for health care settings only) is recommended (and in some place mandatory) when in public spaces such as a grocery store. This is to protect other people from you; it does not offer you any protection and is not a substitute for social distancing.
