As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to dominate headlines, Georgia Urology has made monitoring and responding to this situation a top priority for the health and safety of our patients and employees. At this time, the immediate health risk to the general American public is still considered low by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, Georgia Urology is following the CDC’s recommendations to help prevent exposure and spread of the virus. We are asking our patients, employees, and visitors that they do not come to our offices if they have:
- A fever, cough or shortness of breath, OR
- Recently been in close contact with anyone who is known to have or have had the coronavirus (COVID 19), OR
- Recently traveled outside the United States or in an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of the coronavirus within the United States. As of March 30, this includes Connecticut, New Jersey, New Orleans, and New York.
Please call us to reschedule your appointment if you any of these conditions apply
If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, the CDC recommends you call your primary health care provider.
Most importantly, please protect yourself by washing your hands frequently with soap and water, covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing, and avoiding close contact with anyone who has a fever or cough.
