COVID-19 Visitor Policy & Contact Information

Please refrain from bringing infants, children and family to office visits.  We will allow one healthy, masked adult to accompany you to your first prenatal appointment, your first ultrasound and at your 18-20 week anatomy ultrasound for pregnancy.

COVID-19 Exposure

Recently, we have had many questions regarding COVID-19 exposure. Listen to Dr. Allison Nelson talk about what to do if you have been exposed in the video below.
Covid-questions (2) (1)

Hands-Free Face Covering/ Mask Policy

Based on new safety information, we are updating our face covering/ mask policy.  Anyone entering our clinic for any reason will be required to wear a face mask or covering. You are expected to wear a hands-free face covering/mask the whole time you are in the clinic.  We do not have the ability to provide patients with covering/masks but you can easily make your own with these simple instructions.  Plastic shields do not fall within our policy for protection. If you wear a plastic shield, please also wear a face covering/mask. If you come to your appointment without a face covering/mask you will not be allowed into the clinic and asked to reschedule.  We apologize for this, but it is to protect your safety and ours.

A New and Important Message for Pregnant Women 37 Weeks or More

In response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic, we are receiving medical guidance from multiple sources intended for multiple audiences.

We, the physicians at Moreland OBGYN, evaluate this guidance as it becomes available and determine what is best and most applicable to our patients. We have recently received some recommendations from a panel of physicians regarding treatment of pregnant women at term. This has yet to be commented on by the CDC or ACOG but we felt it is important to act now.

We are recommending that at 37 weeks, all pregnant women work from home if able and if not then they stay home from work. Pregnant women should also observe strict social distancing during this time. This is to reduce the risk of the critical COVID-19 disease, which symptoms peak about two weeks after exposure, from being present at the time of delivery.

We will provide a letter with this recommendation for employers. If your employer requests FMLA paperwork for this, we are happy to provide it. Be aware some employers may count this against the FMLA time you receive after delivery. We can also make no guarantees about short term disability for this period of time. We cannot provide this for spouses or other household members but would recommend they observe the general recommendations of social distancing and hygiene.

The physicians are happy to discuss this with you at your next office visit.

For Efficient  Communication Use MyChart

We are requesting that you use MyChart for the quickest and most efficient way of communicating with our providers and staff. Some employees are working from home as a precaution to stay healthy. A returned phone call from one of our employees may show on caller id as ‘unavailable’.  Please accept an ‘unavailable’ phone call.
