One important medical recommendation we are following to help limit the spread of COVID-19 is to limit contact with others, especially if you feel sick.

Please do not come in to a PPWI health center if: 

  • you are feeling ill and currently experiencing a fever or respiratory symptoms such as cough or difficulty breathing
  • you came in close contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days 
  • If you are sick and need general medical attention, contact your primary care office, walk-in clinic, or urgent care near you.
  • Abortion Service Patients: If you feel sick and need essential sexual and reproductive health care, please call us at 1-800-230-PLAN so we can determine a plan to help you.

What to expect at your Planned Parenthood appointment during the COVID-19 outbreak: 

  • Social distancing (staying at least 6 feet away from people) 
  • Not shaking hands  
  • We will assess your risk for having a current or potential respiratory infection
  • We may ask you to re-schedule your appointment if we think you are ill and pose a health risk to others
  • Health care workers may wear gloves, gowns, or masks if you have respiratory symptoms 
  • You may be asked to wear a mask during your visit if you display respiratory symptoms
  • If someone with you has symptoms of COVID-19, we may ask them to leave the health center 
  • No guests, including children, are allowed to accompany patients into a health center.
