Patient and Visitor Screenings
When you enter our hospital and clinics you will be greeted by a team member in personal protective gear such as face shields, face masks, gown and gloves. Every patient and visitor will be asked the COVID-19 screening questions guided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and we will be checking temperatures. Because face masks help prevent accidental virus spread to others, all non-symptomatic patients and visitors will be given a cloth mask after screening. We ask cloth masks be returned upon leaving for professional laundering. Bringing own face covering is encouraged. Patients with respiratory symptoms requiring tests or treatments are given a disposable surgical mask. It is not recommended that children under the age of 2 wear a mask. If you are wearing your own personal cloth mask and have symptoms of COVID-19, an RAMC team member will provide you with a disposable isolation mask to wear while you are on our campus.
Patient Masking Guidelines
PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS REQUIRED TO COVER THEIR NOSE AND MOUTH WITH A FACE COVERING. MEDICAL DOCUMENTATION IS REQUIRED FOR PATIENTS STATING THEY CANNOT TOLERATE A MASK DUE TO A MEDICAL CONDITION. THESE PATIENTS WILL BE ASKED TO WAIT IN THEIR CAR UNTIL THEY CAN BE IMMEDIATELY ROOMED FOR THEIR APPOINTMENT.
Visitor Masking Guidelines
VISITORS ARE ALWAYS REQUIRED TO COVER THEIR NOSE AND MOUTH WITH A FACE COVERING. THIS IS WITHOUT EXCEPTION. VISITORS WHO CANNOT TOLERATE A PERSONAL FACE COVERING WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO VISIT.

What is Social Distancing?
Social Distancing is a term applied to certain actions that are taken by Public Health officials to stop or slow down the spread of a highly contagious disease and minimize its effects on our most vulnerable populations. It often includes limiting large groups of people coming together, closing buildings and canceling events. It basically helps separate the sick from the healthy and in short, is a way to calm the pace at which as outbreak is able to spread across a population. We can all do our part to make a difference and contribute to slowing the spread of illness.
