COVID-19 Health and Safety Information for Our Patients
If you’re a UI Health Care patient or the caretaker of one of our patients, you may have questions about extra precautions to take during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because information about COVID-19 is changing so rapidly, our doctors recommend that you begin by checking the helpful resources provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other experts in patient care for various diseases and conditions.
We’ve collected links to some of those resources here. We will continue to add links to this page as new or updated guidelines are issued by these authorities.
Many of your questions can be answered by checking these resources first. If your question isn’t answered here, use your MyChart account to send a message to your provider, or call 1-800-777-8442.
