COVID-19 Information for Carea Clients

Your Visit to Carea CHC:  Masking and Screening for COVID-19

Masking continues to be an important measure to reduce the risk of infection with COVID-19 – especially for those who are vulnerable.

Carea continues to require that everyone coming into our buildings wears a mask.  This policy has been in place throughout the pandemic and is an important layer of prevention for clients, visitors, and staff.  We continue to review and adjust our pandemic guidelines as the situation changes, and in accordance with public health advice. 

In addition to continuing the mask requirement, Carea will continue to screen everyone for symptoms and close contact with people who have COVID-19.  Screening will be done with you on the phone at the time your appointment or group is scheduled or confirmed, and again when you arrive on the day of your appointment or group. Appointment hours and site hours can be found here.

Carea doctors and nurse practitioners will continue offering appointment for clients with symptoms who need to be seen in person.  Our staff will talk to you about taking the right precautions to keep you, other clients, and our staff safe.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
