Your coronavirus health and safety

Updated: December 20, 2021

**Masks and screenings are required in all our health care facilities regardless of vaccine status.**

Your health has never been more important. That’s why Adventist Health Portland is doing everything in our power to ensure your safety while visiting our clinics, emergency room and hospital during the coronavirus pandemic.

Our highly trained infection prevention practitioners closely follow the guidelines of the CDC and the local public health department.

Our safety measures include:

  • Limiting in-person appointments: We offer virtual visits by video or phone whenever possible. This saves in-person visits for when you really need them.
  • Separating patients who might have COVID-19: We screen all incoming patients and employees for COVID-19 symptoms before anyone comes inside. Patients with COVID-19 symptoms are taken to isolated areas of the clinic or hospital and kept separate from other patients.
  • Restricting visitors: We are limiting visitors, so please visit our visitor restrictions page for the latest advisories. All visitors will be screened at the door and provided with infection prevention education.
  • Requiring masks: Everyone age 2 and older should wear a mask at all times, except if they have respiratory conditions that won’t allow this. You can wear a cloth mask from home, or we will give you a mask to wear.
  • Keeping physical distance: Our waiting and common areas are arranged to encourage physical distancing.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting: Exam and patient rooms are cleaned between each patient visit, and common areas are cleaned multiple times each day.
