COVID-19 symptom checking and care



Hi, I'm Dr. Mark Benson. We want you to know that your health and safety are our extremely important

to us, and we remain here for you.

Today, to ensure your safety and comfort, our Chief Nursing Executive Kari Garnett is going to walk us

through COVID-19 Symptom screening and care according to CDC, state and local guidelines when you

visit our offices.


Thank you, Dr. Benson. We are committed to serving our patients with the best care possible and to

keep them safe and healthy.

All patients and AHN employees are screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the building.

For our patients without COVID-19 symptoms, when in our offices you'll notice floor markers and other

instructional signage in place to remind you of our new safety practices. If you have any questions,

please ask one of our staff and we'll be happy to help.

If you've had a fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body

aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting or

diarrhea, please let the office staff know by telephone before entering the practice.

We offer both telemedicine and curbside options for patients with COVID-19 symptoms. Any patient

with COVID-19 symptoms must enter separately from our routine care patient population.

Lastly, to stop the spread of Coronavirus, we follow the CDC guidelines related to returning to work for

staff members that unfortunately have experienced coronavirus symptoms.


Thanks, Kari! As you can see, we're taking every step to make you comfortable and safe here in our

practices - if you have questions or any concerns, please talk to your provider. Thank you.



Your health and safety are our top priority. It’s why our offices continue to offer the care you need when you need it. In this video, Chief Nursing Executive Kari Garnett explains how we’re following CDC guidelines to check for COVID-19 symptoms and provide care.
