UPDATE: ADDITIONAL COVID-19 SCREENING AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

For additional protection and safety of NWR patients, employees and visitors to our imaging centers, the following screening processes are being implemented.

All individuals entering NWR imaging centers will have their temperature tested and if it is over 100 degrees, they will not be allowed to enter the building.

With respect to social distancing, we ask that patients only bring one person with them to the facility.

At the time of scheduling and confirmation, patients will be screened for the following symptoms. If patients are positive for any of the symptoms, they will be referred to their healthcare provider for guidance on the appropriate venue for their healthcare needs.

  • Fever over 100 degrees
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

For scheduled exams that have passed the screening process, the social distancing procedures will be followed.

Walk-in patients will be screened for the above symptoms/temperature over 100 degrees, and if they are positive, the patient will be advised to call their provider for guidance on next steps for their healthcare.
