  3. Physical distancing of six feet between patients and staff will be maintained
  4. Disinfection of high-touch surfaces will be conducted
  5. Due to high patient demand, seeking care in the Clinic will require a phone appointment
    • All patients will be screened for COVID-19 and STI and HIV risks
    • Temperature checks will be conducted upon entry into the Clinic
    • Results of the screens will determine a patient’s eligibility to enter the Clinic and the type of medical services provided
  6. Only the patient is allowed to enter the Clinic at their appointment time
