Effective July 28, 2021
There continues to be an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases in Florida, as well as within our community. To provide safe patient centered care, for both our vaccinated and unvaccinated population, the administrative team has made the decision to elevate the visitation plan to Level III status on Wednesday July 28. This will allow for patients to receive support and emotional care from their primary care partner, while reducing potential exposure from well-wishing visitors.
Current level of community transmission: HIGH
