COVID-19 Precautions in Place at MAHEC

Masks: All patients and visitors are asked to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, while in the office. Please bring a mask with you.

Visitors: Two (2) visitors per patient will be permitted to enter in support of their loved one. In a continued effort to keep our patients and staff safe due to ongoing, substantial, COVID-19 community spread:

  • All patients and visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and temperature taken upon entry to a MAHEC office.
  • Visitors who have not been released from COVID-19 quarantine or visitors who are actively symptomatic are kindly asked to not enter the facility.

Virtual support continues to be welcomed at all MAHEC locations. If you would prefer to call your support person from the exam room so they can participate in your visit, we encourage you to do so.

Monoclonal Antibody Treatment

MAHEC is providing the COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatment authorized for use with the delta variant.

Currently a positive COVID-19 test and provider referral is required. Learn More

Post-Acute COVID-19 Care Clinic

Post-Acute COVID is an emerging syndrome that involves COVID symptoms that last for more than two weeks after a diagnosis and can persist for 8 weeks or longer. Symptoms may include severe fatigue and weakness, shortness of breath, reoccurring fevers, fast-beating or pounding heart, exercise intolerance, persistent cough, difficulty thinking or concentrating. Our PACC clinic provides individualized treatments to manage and alleviate ongoing symptoms. We also coordinate external referrals, when needed, to support optimal recovery. Learn More
