  • Phone and on-site screenings of patients and staff prior to appointment
  • No touch temperature taking
  • Mask wearing of all patients to and from clinical areas
  • Increased usage of PPE
  • Eliminating waiting room usage by strategic scheduling
  • Chairs spaced >6 feet apart in reception area and covered in plastic
