(CHCC) — Effective immediately and until further notice, in light of the current events and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation against the threat of Covid-19, the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. Dialysis Center is taking precautionary and safety measures to ensure that patients remain healthy and protected during their treatment.

At this time, we are temporarily not allowing visitors and caregivers to remain chairside during treatment. We ask that caregivers wait patiently in the waiting area or outside area until the treatment is completed. To promote social-distancing, we will not be allowing more than five people to be in the waiting area. Other visitors while a patient is in active treatment are currently not allowed, most especially for patients in isolation.

Patients, you are also asked to call the Dialysis Center ahead of time at 236-8303/4 if you have a new cough, fever, shortness of breath, or any other symptoms that are unusual for you. You will still be dialyzed but we will be prepared for and give instructions for your arrival and for your caregiver.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
