A statement from David B. Banach, M.D., M.P.H.

UConn Health performs travel-related screenings for all patients in urgent care and the Emergency Department. Our healthcare providers are screening all of our patients in urgent care and the Emergency Department according to the CDC Guidelines. In accordance with the CDC guidance any patient under investigation for the novel coronavirus will receive care in a private room, ideally an airborne isolation room if available using Airborne and Contact Precautions, including eye protection and a mask.
