APRIL 29, 2020–We’re taking systemwide precautions to care for you safely and comfortably, whatever you need. Watch this video tour of the Northfield Clinic to see what it's like now.
Call your clinic to talk about your condition, and we’ll help you decide the best option for you – whether that’s a Video Visit, or being seen in person.
Face masks limit the spread of virus. Wearing a mask protects others, by keeping your breath and cough away from them. It adds another layer of protection (like physical distance) to prevent you from spreading germs to others if you don’t know whether you have a virus.
A cotton mask is a good option. When you wear a cotton mask, change it when it gets wet -- including condensation from your breath. Wash it in hot water with regular detergent.
APRIL 21, 2020 – Northfield Hospital + Clinics is now using face masks for all staff and patients as an additional precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This is based on CDC’s recommendation that all individuals cover their faces in health care facilities. Masks are required for everyone entering the hospital.
NH+C is also screening all those who enter the hospital for symptoms of COVID-19; this includes taking temperatures.
