Universal Precautions to Limit Exposure to Covid-19
In order to limit the potential transmission of Covid-19 between patients and employees, Dr. Jewell has developed what is called “universal precautions”. These precautions apply to both patients coming to Dr. Jewell’s clinic and surgery center.
We want you to know that you are safe during your clinic visit or office surgery. We are following CDC guidelines to keep everyone safe.

- Pre-screening all patients and caregivers (temperature check and health/travel inquiry) (Do you have a fever, are you feeling sick or have you been around anyone sick, have you been traveling?) We want to know that you are feeling well
- If you feel sick prior to your appointment please call our main number to cancel your appt.
- Office surgery patient to complete Covid-19 attestation form on morning of surgery.

The clinic door will be locked please call the number on the door and we will let you in.
When you arrive, we will ask you to wash your hands, check your temperature, and wear a mask.
Please come to your appointment alone or with no more than one adult. That adult will be pre-screened asked to wash hands and temperature check. Please do not bring children.
