COVID-19 Precautions

As COVID-19 continues to spread in our communities, we remind all patients and families that we are maintaining the following precautions in our clinics:

  • All patients and staff must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose
  • Visitors are limited to only those required to participate in patient care due to the patient’s condition
  • Everyone entering the building must complete a COVID screening of questions and a temperature check
  • Anyone with COVID symptoms or known exposure to COVID is asked to reschedule their appointment, or complete their visit using telehealth.

Contact your local Mercer Medicine clinic for more information.

Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy.
