UPDATE ON COVID-19

The Covid-19 or CoronaVirus is rapidly changing everyday. While it is understandable to be anxious and concerned, we want to assure all our patients that The Medical Group of Columbia is working to keep all our patients healthy. 

 

As We monitor the news through the CDC, Tennessee Department of Health, Maury Regional Medical Center and other sources, we will update policies and procedures to ensure the health of our patients and staff. Together we can help reduce the spread of the virus.

 

What you need to know:

  • We are currently operating normal business hours and encourage patients to keep their scheduled appointments.

  • The symptoms of Covid-19 are similar to the flu-cough, fever, shortness of breath. In order to protect all of our patients, patients experiencing these and other respiratory symptoms should not come into the office but instead call 931-388-8802 to receive other instructions.

  • Patients experiencing any acute symptoms are being asked to wait in their cars away from those patients awaiting any type of non-acute or follow-up appointment. Please advise our staff of any exposure or concerns immediately.

  • Some new ways we are serving our patients. Please be patient while we navigate these new procedures.

    • Drive Through Services - Some patients are being asked to drive around to the back of the office to be seen by a provider in the car.

    • Tele-Medicine -  Tele-medicine is a live video or phone interactions with a provider. To start this process you will need access to a computer with a camera, an iPad or a smart device (iPhone or Android) and an internet connection. If you feel this type of visit is right for you, call the office to set up or change your visit.

 

How you can help:

  • Social Distancing can really help the spread and lower the curve. This allows our healthcare to stay on top of the situation. So stay at home if you can, even if you aren't sick.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol when soap and water not available.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw it in the trash.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently.
