The safety of our patients and staff is of utmost importance to us. We are taking the following measures to help maintain this safety.
See the latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19) and related care, policies, and procedures at McFarland Clinic.
McFarland Clinic requests that no more than one visitor accompany each patient to their appointment in order to help limit the number of people inside our facilities.
All patients and visitors who enter McFarland Clinic are screened upon check-in for symptoms and COVID-19 testing. Any individual who displays or indicates symptoms of COVID-19 or who indicates they have had exposure will be directed carefully and appropriately to avoid exposure to other people.
Guidance from the CDC states that all visitors to healthcare settings, whether vaccinated or not, should wear masks or cloth face coverings. All patients, visitors, and staff at McFarland Clinic are required to wear masks or homemade face coverings while in our facilities. If you do not have a face covering of your own, you will be provided with a professionally cleaned cloth mask at the door. (The CDC does not recommend face coverings for children under age 2.)
The CDC advises that masks with exhalation valves, while effective at protecting the wearer, are not effective at blocking the transmission of COVID from a wearer who may be a carrier. Therefore masks with exhalation valves must be covered with a surgical or cloth covering while inside the clinic.
Check-in and reception desks at McFarland Clinic locations have been equipped with plexiglass screens to protect patients and staff members working in these areas.
Patients and visitors are requested to maintain physical distancing with other people in public spaces at the clinic such as reception and waiting areas. You may notice signs and seating arrangements in our facilities designed to assist with these distancing measures.
Cleaning and Disinfecting Procedures
Our clinical and environmental services staff use rigorous disinfection processes, ensuring freshly cleaned exam rooms for each appointment and clean public spaces.
