Masks Are Still Required

Any person entering our office is required to wear a face-covering​ and keep it on for the duration of your appointment.

  • If you are fully vaccinated, masks are still to be worn in hospitals and other health care settings, according to CDC recommendations, including the staff and patients of Covington Women’s Health Specialists. While we understand the frustration, our hard work adhering to our safety enhancements have paid off.
  • For patients who do not have a mask when they arrive at our office, you can buy a ZShield Wrap Mask for $30 or can rent one for $5 per appointment.

Additional Guests Are Not Permitted

Patients are NOT allowed to bring infants or children with them to appointments due to restrictions in place during COVID-19. Please arrange childcare before attending your scheduled appointment. While we love seeing them in our office, we are unable to make any exceptions.

A support person is not allowed to accompany pregnant patients during their appointments. ​We understand the variety of needs for a support person at your visit.

  • Please reach out to our office if you want to request for a support companion at your upcoming visit for needs such as translating or physical support due to a disability.
  • We encourage patients to utilize videoconferencing on their personal devices or have their support person on speakerphone for the duration of the appointment.

Other Protocols

  • We are taking the temperature as part of appointment screening. ​ Anyone with a fever ​will be asked to leave and reschedule for when they are not sick.
  • Wash your hands after touching surfaces that may be frequently touched by other people, such as door handles, tables, etc. You also need to wash your hands before touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • We will continue to implement televisits as a scheduling option for certain healthcare needs that can be provided over the phone without an in-person visit.

​These ​processes protect the health of our patients, employees, and the community. ​ Thank you for your patience and understanding. We appreciate your cooperation as we strive to accommodate your needs and keep everyone healthy. ​
