Due to incomplete information about of COVID-19 testing, our practice is NOT relying on testing to assume that anyone is virus-free. For our collective safety, we’re treating everyone — team members, patients, and everybody who enters our premises — as if they are potentially infectious. We are, however, assuming that those who test positive for the virus are actually infected, and not allowing them into our premises until they have been medically cleared.
