Coronavirus Concerns: Our commitment to your health and safety

Posted .

June 1, 2020

Utah Fertility Center has re-evaluated our policies in response to the ongoing pandemic. We have reviewed updated recommendations from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. We are continuously monitoring data and requirements from our state and local officials and all local regulations. We are also weighing our duty to our patients in these trying times.

 

We will continue the utilization of telehealth procedures wherever possible, and all new patient or follow-up appointments will be conducted remotely.

We are able to offer most diagnostic testing and initiation of treatment cycles

We will revisit these policies periodically to provide the safest care possible.

If you are coming to the office, please note the CDC/Utah DOH recommended procedures we are following in order to help keep you safe:

We are washing our hands often
We are sanitizing frequently
Masks covering the nose and mouth are required by staff and patients/permitted partners
We are asking patients to check-in and wait in their cars
We are checking everyone for possible exposure to Covid-19.  If you are ill,  have had recent exposure or have symptoms, please let us know.   We may need to reschedule your appointment in accordance with current CDC guidelines but will  work with you on an individual basis based on your circumstances.

 

These practices and our business decisions are informed by guidance from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the CDC and the Utah Department of Health.  This is a rapidly evolving situation; we are monitoring closely and will re-evaluate our policies and guidance as the situation demands.  For more information regarding COVID-19:
