COVID-19

SMEF is committed to providing our patients with the most up to date information related to coronavirus – SARS – CoV2 and COVID-19 infection. In addition, we are prepared to be your resource for assisting with your COVID-19 vaccination, testing and treatment needs. If you have a positive COVID-19 test at home, please call to schedule a telehealth visit with a medical provider to determine if you are eligible for treatment.  Please do not come into the office with a positive home COVID-19 test unless you receive special instructions to do so. 

In accordance with CDC COVID-19 mitigation measures, we will use the Community Level indicators to determine the requirements for masking inside our facility.  Our current mask requirements will be posted on the front door.  We encourage all patients and visitors to wear a mask if they are most comfortable being masked in an indoor environment.  Masks (including N-95’s) will be available at the front desk. We continue to maintain our commitment to providing a safe office environment for all patients and employees.

How To Get A COVID-19 Test
