A Message on Behalf of UWA Athletic Training & Sports Medicine Center Providers & Care Team:

Dear UWA Patients,

Discussions and concerns surrounding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) continue at the local, state, and national levels. Our practice continues to closely monitor the situation in conjunction with guidance from the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control.

The well-being of our patients and team members is our top priority and we want to ease any concerns about this issue at hand. Our medical staff and employees follow strict guidelines for cleaning and sanitizing work surfaces, common use areas and treatment rooms to reduce/prevent the spread of illness. Hand washing and sanitizing are handled very carefully and thoroughly between each patient and will be continuous daily.

Current Patients:

We ask that 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 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. No cancellation fees will be incurred. 

To protect our patients, staff and family members we will be following the policy of reducing family members/friends accompanying patients. Please limit the number of family members or friends with the patient to one (1) person.

We urge patients to please refer to the CDC website for information on preventing illness from the coronavirus: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html
