Keeping you safe

We have a variety of measures in place to protect you during your time at Summit.

Most importantly, if you have a fever, cough, and shortness of breath OR are in direct contact with anyone who has these symptoms, do not report to Summit for your appointment. Instead please call your Primary Care Provider.

  • Face covering: Patients and everyone entering Summit must wear a face covering such as a mask, scarf, or bandanna. All staff wear facemasks, and many of our staff have already received the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Screening questions: Prior to your appointment and when you arrive we will ask screening questions to determine exposure to COVID-19. Staff daily are asked the same questions and attest that they do not have any symptoms.
  • Limiting visitors: For the safety of patients and caregivers, we are not allowing visitors, family members, or additional individuals such as QRCs to accompany you to your appointment. The only exception is if the patient is a minor or requires a legal guardian to accompany them in the exam room and sign for them (such as patients with dementia). Interpreters are allowed to join.
  • Hand sanitizing: Upon entry of your location, please sanitize your hands using the provided sanitizer prior to going to the check-in desk.
  • Social distancing: Everyone is encouraged to social distance in lobbies and for check-in.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols: Both staff and professional cleaning crews make sure that high-touch areas are cleaned frequently. All clipboards are cleaned in between each patient.
