PSV's Coronavirus Guidelines

March 8, 2020 | By Justin Jones

PSV has implemented social distancing and other protective measures to improve the safety of your experience for yourself and the PSV staff serving you.  Here's a few things you should know and expect when you arrive for your in-person appointment.

  • MASK:  Please ensure that all patients and guests arrive wearing a mask that covers the mouth and nose.  See the CDC website for mask suggestions.
  • ONE ADULT:  Only one adult is allowed to accompany the patient.  If a second adult is present, we will ask this person to please wait in the car.  If participation is needed for the appointment then he/she may be called on the phone.  ​
  • SCREENING:  All patients, families, and visitors will participate in COVID-19 screening before proceeding to the appointment.  You will be asked about symptoms - fever, respiratory symptoms, cough, congestion, chills, repeated chills with shaking, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea - and contact with others that may be COVID-19 positive.

We will continue to monitor and adapt our policies based on the spread of COVID-19.
