It is still recommended in Colorado that whenever possible, to use telehealth for visits. However, we are allowed to do limited in-clinic in-person visits. For in-office visits:
- You will be required to wear a face covering that covers your mouth and nose while in our clinic. A homemade cloth cover is fine. Our staff will wear facemasks too.
- Physical distancing. Stay 6 feet from other people during your visit whenever possible.
- Only the entryway on the southwest will be open (the direct entrance to the clinic)
- Your temperature will be checked when you enter the clinic. People with a fever > 100.3 will not be allowed to enter the clinic.
- Use hand sanitizer or wash hands.
- There will be a staff at the entryway screening patients and staff members for the above.
- If you are a member of a high risk group (age > 65, lung problems like asthma, hypertension, diabetes, BMI over 40, etc.) it is strongly encouraged to continue telehealth visits for now.
- If you have any upper respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, do not enter Clinical Nutrition Center, and please perform visits via telehealth for at least 2 weeks, and until no fevers for at least 72 hours.
- If you have had confirmed or suspected coronavirus infection, please do not come to the clinic for at least 2 weeks, and until your symptoms have improved and you have had no fevers for at least 72 hours.
- We are not equipped to test for acute coronavirus infection, nor to offer treatment. If you are concerned you have been exposed, please contact your primary care provider for instructions, or if your symptoms are severe, your urgent care center or emergency room.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but thank you for helping keep our clinic safe – for yourself, and for our staff and patients. We look forward to seeing you soon!
