IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING COVID-19
Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic Orangeburg Medical Group is committed to remain operational to serve your needs. We understand that everyone has concerns about the presence of COVID-19 and we have developed a plan of action to address the potential threat. We are screening all incoming patients to find out if they are infected or at risk of infection. We have increased our efforts to wipe down surfaces between patients and to frequently wipe down our waiting area. We are also working to minimize the risk of exposure from patients with flu like symptoms. Our physicians and staff are wearing appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to help minimize exposure and decrease transmission of the virus.
Orangeburg Medical Group is following the CDC and Stanislaus County Health Service Agencies recommendations. With the current Shelter in Place order we are providing telehealth visits for our patients so that you can see your provider while staying safe at home. All you will need is a smartphone, computer, or tablet. To schedule a telehealth visit with your provider please contact our office at (209) 523-1884 and inform the representative that you are interested in this type of appointment.
We will continue to accommodate our patients that are unable to schedule a telehealth visit. We ask that all patients that maintain appointments follow the best practice guidelines for staying healthy:
- Wash hands frequently with soap and water at least 20 seconds. If soop and water are not available, use hand sanitizers.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. Put your used tissue in the waste basket. If you do not have tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently objects and surfaces, using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Additionally, due to local and federal government recommendations, we are trying to limit people in our indoor spaces. We are asking our patients to check in with our receptionist at time of appointment then to wait in their car rather than in the waiting room, until the medical assistant has a room available.
