Thank you for choosing Southern Orthopaedic Surgeons.

As the novel coronavirus’ (COVID-19) impact on communities increases, we feel it is important to communicate our plan to keep patients and team members healthy and safe.

Handwashing

Our Locations

  • While our facilities and equipment are cleaned frequently throughout the day, we are increasing the frequency and detail of sanitizing equipment, exam tables, furniture, and doors.
  • We are increasing the cleaning of surfaces and items (Kiosks, Ipads, writing tools, clipboards, etc.) that are touched frequently.

Our Patients

  • All patients and visitors are required to wear masks for the duration of the appointment.
  • Please reschedule if you or a household member is awaiting COVID-19 test results
  • Please wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water before and after your appointment.
  • If you are unable to wash your hands beforehand, please use the provided alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Please no handshaking.
  • Please do not wear gloves.
  • If you are sick (fever, coughing, achiness), please cancel your appointment and reschedule for a later time when you are no longer sick or running fever.
  • If you are in the clinic and you need to cough or sneeze, please cough into a tissue and throw it immediately into the trash.
  • If you or anyone in your household have been on a cruise or traveled to or from China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, or Japan within the last 14 days, please contact our office to reschedule your appointment.
