Carolina Urology Partners update on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) preparedness

In order to ensure the safety of our patients, providers, and staff, we are actively screening all patients and visitors to our offices for the virus based on guidelines provided to us by our local and state health departments and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms may appear between 2 and 14 days after exposure to the virus. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Concerned about potential exposure in our office?

While we regularly adhere to a stringent cleaning and disinfecting routine, we are increasing our efforts to ensure everyone’s safety and are actively screening all patients and visitors for the virus. Those suspected of having contact with the virus will not be permitted entry to any Carolina Urology Partners office until it is deemed safe for them to do so according to guidelines.

Symptoms of the virus with an upcoming appointment?

If you have an upcoming appointment, are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have come into contact with a known carrier, and/or have traveled to any of the known affected areas recently, please contact your Carolina Urology Partners office immediately to reschedule your appointment.
