PLEASE NOTE: The Douglas County Health Department has inaccurately listed Think as a free COVID-19 testing site for the public. We do offer tests for patients. To obtain a test if one is warranted, you will need to schedule an appointment with a provider. The standard cost for the test is around $400.

KEEPING YOU SAFE AS COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ARE EXPANDED

WEAR A MASK:

Masks reduce the transmission of secretions. The CDC recommends that everyone wear a mask to reduce the spread of the virus.


WASH YOUR HANDS:

The COVID-19 virus can be picked up by your hands and transferred to your throat and nose. It takes 20 seconds to wash thoroughly. Please wash frequently.


CONTINUE WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING:

Stay six feet apart and limit the number of individuals together at one time. This reduces the spread of virus from infected individuals.


COVID-19 TESTING FOR SURGERY:

Most medical organizations that offer surgery are asking individuals to be tested by nasopharyngeal swab three days before surgery and isolate at home until the surgery date. Most organizations are doing the testing at their institutions while others are relying on outside testing sites. Please check with your surgeon about locations for testing.


TELEMEDICINE:

Think has the ability for you to have a visit with your physician through a Smart Phone or computer. Please contact Think if you would like to schedule a virtual appointment.


ON-SITE APPOINTMENTS:

Your provider may wish to see you at the Think office rather than by telehealth. Think screens for signs of a viral infection and uses CDC guidelines to protect our patients.

Please plan on arriving at least 10 minutes earlier than you would for your appointment as we have screening protocols in place at the entrance.


BE SAFE, BE KIND AND PASS ON THESE RECOMMENDATIONS. Thank you!

In all cases, follow the guidance of your healthcare provider and local health department. The decision to stop home isolation should be made in consultation with your healthcare provider and state and local health departments. Local decisions depend on local circumstances.
