COVID-19 & ANTIBODY TESTING

Testing is safe and simple. Knowledge is power, so know where you stand.
Your health is our priority. Due to recent events with COVID-19, we have temporarily modified our visitor policy.
In order to protect the health of our communities, and as a safety precaution to prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19, we have instituted visitor restrictions in accordance with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, some hospital access points will be consolidated on our campuses
