OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The health of our patients, volunteers, and staff is immensely important to us!
During the pandemic, we have been taking as much precaution as possible to both limit the spread of COVID-19 in Athens and to look after the health of our community. Although we don’t provide testing for COVID-19, Athens Nurses Clinic continues to help out the community of Athens. Here’s a little about what we’ve been doing thus far.
- Telemedicine. Each week, our medical practitioners discuss the upcoming week’s patients and whether it is vital for them to be seen in person or not. Every patient’s medical and history is reviewed via phone call before their appointment to determine if an in-person appointment is necessary or too much of a risk.
- Precautions in the Clinic. Prior to entering the clinic, patients are greeted by a Patient Question Board, which contains questions that ensure that no patient entering the clinic has symptoms of COVID-19.
