Vibrant Health’s Notice on Coronavirus (COVID-19):

Vibrant Health is accepting all appointments including in-person or telehealth visits. In-person well visits will be scheduled at our Central clinic and in-person sick visits will be scheduled at our Argentine clinic.

The safety of our patients and staff is our number one priority. We encourage our patients not to skip health care appointments, as we are taking multiple measures to ensure the safety of all patients and staff. All people entering our clinics, including staff, patients and people accompanying patients, will have their temperatures taken at the existing checkpoint on the third floor. Anyone with a temperature over 100 will be asked to return to their car for further instructions from Vibrant Health staff.

To limit the number of individuals in the clinic, patients and caregivers will be reminded to only bring the patient and one caregiver to the visit and to wear their own masks if available. If multiple family members present to the clinic, they will be asked to return to their car.

In-person appointment slots have been staggered to allow for increased social distancing and increased hours of access. Time in the waiting room will be limited, to ensure proper social distancing. Masks must be worn by everyone over the age of two entering the clinic.

Call 911 if you have a medical emergency: Notify the operator that you have, or think you might have, COVID-19. If possible, put on a cloth face covering before medical help arrives.

How does COVID-19 spread?

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneeze. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

How can I protect myself?

-Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
-Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick. -Practice social distancing, including putting at least 6 feet between yourself and other people and staying home when possible.
-Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks
