Safety Precautions and Visitor Protocol
New! Digital Screening for COVID-19
Recognizing the need to improve the efficiency of health care visits during the pandemic, UT Physicians has announced digital, contactless coronavirus screening in our clinics throughout the Greater Houston area.
Patients will be encouraged to fill out the assessment before their appointments. They can do so by downloading the free UT Physicians app, available for both Apple and Android devices. The screening questions, available in both English and Spanish, take only a few minutes. Patients are asked about any symptoms they may be experiencing and if they have been tested for coronavirus in the last 14 days.
Upon arrival, patients can simply show they passed by displaying the green light that will appear on their mobile device screen or via an email sent directly to their inbox.
If patients miss the opportunity to take the screening before their appointments, UT Physicians will have posters in each of their clinic entrances with QR codes. Once scanned with their mobile device, they will be taken directly to the questionnaire to complete onsite.
Additional Clinic Safety Measures
For pediatric patient visits: For appointments involving children (under 18 years of age), the pediatric patient may only be accompanied by one parent/guardian. No siblings are permitted. We ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate this situation. Our mission is to protect patients, employees, and visitors while providing a high level of care during this crisis.
