Protecting Your Health
While the environment and experience at Faith Regional may look different, our team is ready and available to care for you.
Here are some steps we are taking to ensure your safety:
Screening at All Entrances
Everyone entering Faith Regional facilities is screened for COVID-19 symptoms. We ask for your help in keeping our patients safe. Please call ahead prior to your appointment if you:
- Have a fever, cough, or sore throat
- Have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days
- Have had an unprotected exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days
Masks are Required
If you have your own facemask, we encourage you to wear it to help us conserve our supply for front-line medical providers. If you do not have a mask, we are happy to provide one to you when you arrive.
All patient care staff will wear surgical masks and protective eyewear, as well as other necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), at all times when caring for patients.
Increased Infection Control Protocols
Extra cleaning and disinfection of high-touch public areas will continue throughout our facilities.
Help Protect Yourself and Others from the Spread of COVID-19.
- Get vaccinated against COVID-19.
- Get tested if you think you might have COVID-19.
- Wear a mask to protect yourself and others whenever you are outside the home or around people who live outside your household.
- Stay home and limit contact with others as much as possible if you are ill.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap is not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.

- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces often.
