Your safety and health are Piedmont Cancer Institute's priority. We continue to monitor COVID-19 very closely and take steps to limit the spread of this and other serious respiratory illnesses.
If you are coming to a PCI office, we ask that you bring no more than two individuals with you for visits with your healthcare provider. While two visitors per patient are acceptable in the exam rooms and reception areas, only one visitor per patient is allowed in our Infusion Suites.
All patients, visitors, and staff in our patient-facing offices are required to wear a minimum of a surgical mask. Patients and visitors may wear their own surgical mask, N95 mask, or KN95 mask. If they do not have one of these items, one will be provided by PCI. Cloth masks are not allowed. Patients and visitors will be asked wellness screening questions before entering the assessment and treatment areas of the office.
All patients with fever (temperature greater than 100 degrees), body aches, and/or respiratory symptoms such as cough and/or shortness of breath are asked to call and report their symptoms to their physician's nurse prior to their appointment. Because of the large volume of immunocompromised patients treated in our offices, patients with fever plus other symptoms may be referred elsewhere for evaluation and treatment. Caregivers and visitors with fever and/or respiratory symptoms are asked to avoid coming to our offices and they are encouraged to seek medical evaluation.
Patients and caregivers who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 may return to a Piedmont Cancer Institute location only after the criteria for discontinuing home isolation have been met. The criteria can be found here - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/duration-isolation.html.
Individuals are not required to quarantine following a Covid-19 exposure as long as they have no symptoms of COVID-19. Additional information can be found here - https://dph.georgia.gov/contact.
The physicians and advanced practitioners of Piedmont Cancer Institute encourage all individuals to receive vaccination against COVID-19. Vaccines are readily available in the community and can be located using the CDC Vaccine Finder - https://www.vaccines.gov/search/.
