What We're Doing to Keep Camarena Health Safe
Patient Mask & Visitor Policy
MASK POLICY: All individuals over 2 years of age are required to wear a face covering while inside any Camarena Health location.
Patients with an underlying health condition who have a concern about using a mask will be offered a phone or virtual visit. Individuals who refuse to wear a mask will not be permitted in the building to access any health services.
VISITOR POLICY: Due to the risk that exists for asymptomatic transmission of infection to patients and staff, only patients with a demonstratable need for assistance will be permitted to have one masked caregiver accompany them to their appointment. For all Pediatric visits, it is highly recommended that only one parent or approved guardian be in attednance with the child to their appointment.
Camarena Health staff will kindly ask all other visitors with patients who do not need assistance, to wait for their loved one outside in their vehicles. This action is to promote the health safety of all patients and staff at Camarena Health,
Thank you for your cooperation and concern for the health and safety of our patients, staff, and community.
