COVID-19 Updates

Announcements

We are implementing increased visitor restrictions to help reduce potential exposure to our patients, staff and community members in accordance with state and national social distancing guidelines. Though we know having a support person is more than needing physical assistance, we are kindly asking that you come alone to your appointment unless you need assistance going to the bathroom, are under 18, or have another diagnosis that requires mental/emotional support. Non-qualifying visitors will be asked to remain in the hallway or in their car.

Thank you for understanding these additional measures taken to protect you and your fellow patients.  Please feel free to call us at anytime (503-561-6444) with questions or concerns or see the following links for more information.

 

Safety Measures to Protect You

To Our Patients,

The health and safety of our patients and staff is a top priority at Oregon Oncology Specialists. With growing concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to take a moment to share with you the additional precautions we are taking to help put your mind at ease.

Our daily cleaning procedures are already very thorough, but given the evolving situation, we are elevating our cleaning practices to ensure all proper precautions are being taken. Here are the additional health & hygiene practices we are implementing to keep our clinics clean and safe:

  • We have increased cleaning protocols related to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, counter-tops, patient refreshment station, faucets and more.
  • We have placed hand sanitizer throughout the clinics for patients and staff.

 

Best Practices For Keeping Yourself Healthy

  • Wash your hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds, particularly after using the restroom, before and after eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Disinfect hands frequently using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer and carry disinfectant with you for easy use.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth throughout the day and cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then discard the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact including shaking hands, kissing and hugging.

If you are sick or feeling unwell, please give us a call (503-561-6444 – Salem or 503-435-6590 – McMinnville) and we will help you get rescheduled. In addition, if you have traveled to any of the countries where there are outbreaks of the virus, please follow guidance on the CDC website.

We are committed to keeping our clinics healthy and maintaining a safe and welcoming environment. We are also closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19. Thank you for being a valued patient.
