Visitor Restrictions & Masking Requirements
Patients are allowed more than one WELL visitor to accompany them to their appointment.
Visitors who are accompanying a patient to a clinic will be attesting they are not currently experiencing any COVID-19-related symptoms with no known cause and have not been exposed to anyone with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 test without wearing PPE for the past 14 days.
Masks are no longer required for visitors or employees as a routine practice providing the COVID-19 community transmission rate is not high. Masking requirements will be updated on a weekly basis and signs posted at all entrances indicating the level of transmission.
Red - High Risk or Orange - Substantial Risk
Masks are required for everyone.
Yellow - Moderate Risk
Masks are optional for visitors, except in the ED waiting area, and required for staff dealing with direct patient care.
Blue - Low Risk
Masks are optional for everyone.
COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Southwestern Medical Affiliates clinics are not currently administering COVID-19 vaccines.
If you have specific questions about eligibility or would like to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, please refer to the Oklahoma State Department of Health website or call the OSDH Immunization Service Team at 405.426.8580.
Thank you for your patience and understanding – and for continuing to do your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, maintaining social distancing and practicing proper hand hygiene.
Visiting a provider does not necessarily mean you need testing or that you will receive testing. Your provider will work with the local health department to follow all appropriate guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Oklahoma State Department of Health to determine if testing is recommended based on your symptoms.
