COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to continue providing the safest setting, we have established several additional measures to reduce the risks posed by the virus and ensure health and safety for all.

Due to recent government mandates and the rapid spread and danger caused by the Delta variant, new company protocols and policies have been updated to reflect the heightened concern for safety. When possible, the organization has applied an approach that ensures freedom of choice.

Oregon and Washington:

All practice employees must be fully vaccinated. The only exceptions to these state mandates are for those individuals who require accommodations due to a qualifying disability or medical condition, or a sincerely-held religious belief that would prevent them from receiving a vaccine.

Alabama, Texas, Kentucky and Massachusetts:

It is required that all practice staff is either fully vaccinated or submit to weekly COVID-19 screening testing. Employees will also have the option to apply for an exemption to have on file. While these new protocols are not a result of government mandates in these four states, we believe they are a pragmatic solution - one that still preserves choice but also represents the best way to ensure the health and safety of both our staff and the patients that we serve.
