Universal masking is required at Providence Health Park Medical Buildings. You will be required to wear your mask throughout the entire visit.

Caregivers are limited to one per patient and currently do not permit additional family members.

Our waiting room has been modified to allow for social distancing. When you check in at the front desk you will be escorted to an exam room.

Patient exam rooms are completely cleaned between each patient. Enhanced disinfecting and cleaning in the clinic are ongoing throughout the day.

You Can Help Prevent or Limit the Spread of COVID-19
  • Do not go to the emergency room unless essential. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your regular doctor first. Be sure to call ahead.
  • Stay home when you’re sick.
  • Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including hand washing for at least 20 seconds. Please cough into a tissue or elbow. Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay away from people who are ill, especially if you are 60 and older or have underlying health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, or a weakened immune system.
  • Stay informed. Information is changing frequently. Visit Alaska Department of Public Health’s website, where you can subscribe and check regularly for updates.
