5 Ways We’re Keeping You Safe During COVID-19
Precautions in place at UCSF Health
We've expanded our time for telehealth appointments, so that our providers can see patients online for primary care, follow-up visits, mental health services, pain management, medication monitoring and many other issues.
Prescreening and testing
All patients who need to come to UCSF are prescreened – and in some cases, tested – for COVID-19. All employees and visitors entering our hospitals and clinics are screened for symptoms.
Masking and physical distancing
We've implemented physical distancing to ensure a 6-foot distance from others. We also require everyone in a UCSF facility to wear a face covering at all times, and we distribute masks upon entry, if needed.
Isolation of COVID-19 patients and staff
We're using separate entrances, care teams and respiratory units for COVID-19 patients, both those who are hospitalized and those being evaluated. By isolating COVID-19 patients and medical staff, we help protect everyone's health.
Cleaning and disinfection
Our hospitals and clinics are cleaned and disinfected rigorously, in accordance with the infection prevention guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
