Safety Is Our Priority

UConn Health has enacted extra precautions and guidelines to maintain the highest level of safety for our patients, visitors, and employees. Some of these measures include:

  • Symptom screening for patients and visitors, and policies requiring all employees, students, and trainees to self-monitor for symptoms and remain home if they have COVID-related symptoms.
  • Required masking in all areas where patients are present.
  • Social distancing measures in waiting rooms, and common areas as needed.
  • Thoroughly cleaning exam rooms pre- and post-patient visit.
  • Ensuring all our staff and providers wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and follow CDC guidelines.
