COVID-19

Waimānalo Health Center is committed to the health and safety of our patients, staff and community. We are operating with enhanced procedures in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 including:

  • We have begun telephonic screening of patients with fevers and respiratory symptoms prior to them coming in to the health center.
  • We are isolating patients with cold symptoms so they are not in the same areas as other patients.
  • We established new guidelines for patients and staff upon entering the building including sanitizing their hands and wearing a mask if necessary.  
  • We have increased the frequency and extent of our sanitation and cleaning efforts with additional disinfecting of patient exam rooms, common areas, and high-touch surfaces.
  • We are communicating regularly with our staff to keep them updated, share new procedures, conduct training, and provide them with helpful reminders for staying healthy.
  • We require our staff to check for signs of illness before reporting to work each day and to stay home if they exhibit symptoms.
  • We have implemented social distancing measures including suspending all classes, eliminating meetings with external partners, limiting the number of guests and vendors to come on to our property, etc.
  • We have established a COVID-19 committee led by members of our executive team to ensure our procedures and practices meet or exceed the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Health.
