Update to COVID-19 precautions and operations (May 2020)

By May 6, 2020Uncategorized

Valued patients –

We continue to work diligently to ensure that SeattleNTC remains a safe place to receive essential healthcare. As public health recommendations continue to evolve, particularly for medical settings, please note the following additional policies: All staff and patients must wear a mask while in the clinic, in order to reduce the likelihood of spread of the novel coronavirus.

If you do not have a mask of your own, we can provide one for you to reuse during your visits to our clinic.
In order to continue to minimize the number of people who need to be on-site at any given time, we are operating with reduced staff. As such, there may be changes to our typical hours, scheduling flexibility, the availability of staff by telephone, and the speed with which we can return voicemails. We sincerely appreciate your patience with these inconveniences.
We continue to screen patient and staff temperatures prior to entry to the clinic. We will need to send home anyone whose temperature registers 100F or higher.

As new coronavirus symptoms continue to be recognized, please remember that patients and staff must be free of ANY symptoms for 72 hours prior to coming to SNTC, including, but not limited to:

1. Fever
2. Chills
3. Cough
4. Sore throat
5. Shortness of breath
6. Muscle aches
7. New loss of taste or smell
