Despite the COVID-19 Stay At Home orders in Ohio over the past couple of months, Hope Clinic of Ross County has continued to serve those without health insurance and under the 200% federal poverty line.
Hope Clinic CEO Jami Easterday says they have been conducting “virtual” patient visits from 5pm-7pm Monday’s and during the day on Thursday.
In-person clinic visits will resume as of June 1st, although there are some protocol guidelines that patients will need to follow, for their safety as well as for the volunteers. This will include a "triage and screening" for COVID-19 over the phone, then patients will be asked to stay in their vehicle- where they will be given a mask and be asked to do their paperwork, before being brought inside to see the nurse and provider.
Those wanting more information about the current virtual visits or the procedure to be used when in-person clinics resume in June, can go to the Hope Clinic of Ross County Facebook page, their website at www.hopeclinicfree.org or call (740) 774-4606.
