Safe visitor policy

To reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, we are reducing the number of people that enter our offices, which means for the time being, no visitors. Of course, we have some exceptions, including:

  • Pediatrics: Two parents or guardians may accompany pediatric patients.
  • Adult primary care and specialties: One caretaker may accompany an adult who requires assistance or an interpreter.
  • Infusion Suites: Only patients allowed; patients requiring assistance need to make arrangements with the infusion center.
  • Other exceptions: Optum providers retain discretion regarding the safety of our patients as well as our employees. Masks and social distancing are always required.

Masking up

  • Everyone two years old and up is required to wear a mask at all times in our offices to create the safest environment for us all. If you show up without a mask, or your mask doesn’t meet our standard, we’ll provide you one.
  • The most effective way to wear a mask is over your nose and mouth, so make sure you and your company come fully covered.
  • The right mask can help you keep your child safe and comfortable.
