Patients may be subject to screening
All patients requesting product pickup only, will be directed to the existing curbside pickup process.
All staff should don (at minimum) a fitted mask and eye protection during interactions with patients.
In addition, all staff should don gloves as per usual for all medical treatments.

Attempts should be made to keep a social distance of at least 6 feet to both patients and staff whenever possible throughout the entire facility including the break room.
