COVID-19 GUIDELINES

We want to reassure you that nothing is more important than the health, safety and well-being of our patients at OMNI Orthopaedics and OASIS Surgery Center. As a result, if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or have a fever, we kindly request that you reschedule your appointment.

What to Expect at Your OMNI Appointment

If possible, please check your temperature before you come to your appointment. If you have a fever (temperature of 100.4 or higher), we ask that you call in and reschedule your appointment for at least two weeks out.
We will ask the following questions upon your arrival as part of our staff and patient safety screening process.

Outpatient Screening for COVID-19

  • Do you have or have you recently had cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, any other symptoms of respiratory illness, fever/chills, sore throat, headache, or new loss of taste and/or smell?
  • If yes to any of the above symptoms, is there a medical condition/diagnosis to explain the symptoms?
  • Have any of your family members or close contacts had any of the above symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19?
  • If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, call our office first before you come in to our office.

*Close contact is defined as being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period. This can occur while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a healthcare waiting room with a COVID-19 case or having direct contact with infections secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., be coughed on.)
