Houston hospitals and health clinics are doing everything they can to make sure patients and staff won't catch COVID-19.
Local professionals say don't be afraid to go to the doctor if you in urgent need of medical care. Nearly every major facility in our area has laid out an extensive policy on cleaning, social distancing, and screening before staff and patients are allowed to enter their facilities.
“I think the inside is very safe. I come here every day having done any kind of work from home, project, and we’re definitely trying to keep anyone who might have symptoms with COVID out of the building and trying to treat them via a telehealth visit,” Dr. Donnie Aga, with the Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, said.
Aga also says everyone is required to wear a face mask inside their facilities and hand sanitizer is provided.
