Keeping Our Patients and Staff Safe
The Corvallis Clinic is closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19. Our Incident Committee Team has been meeting daily to keep up to date with standards from the Center for Disease Control, as well as with local and state agency guidelines.
If you suspect that you are experiencing symptoms of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), please call your department or provider before entering the building.
Notice: Visitor Restrictions Are In Place
To limit exposure to Covid19, patients are no longer able to bring visitors to appointments unless it is medically necessary. Parents may accompany minor children, and a caregiver may accompany medically fragile or physically impaired patients. Thank you for helping to keep our community safe.
Please keep in mind that most cases of COVID-19 do not require a clinic or hospital visit. By following the right tips for prevention, we can minimize the impact of COVID-19 in our community.
- There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19
- The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus
- The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person
- The virus is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes
- These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs
