SCDMH and COVID-19: IMPORTANT CHANGES
SCDMH inpatient facilities (hospitals and nursing homes), and community mental health centers remain operational and are taking precautions to protect patients, residents and staff from exposure to the novel coronavirus.
- Face masks are required. If you do not have one, we will provide one to you.
- You must have a temperature check upon entry.
- Please observe physical distancing of 6 feet with other.
- Visitors: If you are not a patient or accompanying a patient, you must have an appointment.
Remember, these are precautions to help limit patient and staff exposure to the Coronavirus in our community. We must all do our part to keep our families, friends, and neighbors safe and healthy.
