Coronavirus Protocol for Clients

We are beginning to schedule appointments for Pregnancy Tests and Ultrasounds for Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning Tuesday, June 16 at 10:00 am.  Due to the amount of time needed between client visits for proper screening, social distancing and sanitizing, we are scheduling appointments from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm until further notice.  If there is a positive pregnancy test and the client is 8 weeks or more, we will perform the ultrasound the same day, 30 minutes after the pregnancy test.

We are screening for COVID, taking temperatures, giving clients a mask and gloves to keep, along with a pen for paper work.  We are using a plexiglass clip board for paperwork which will be sanitized between clients and fully cleaning all areas of use after each visit.

Please see the COVID-19 Screening Form below.
