Coronavirus Covid-19

All of Bone & Joint's clinics are open to serve you. 

However, due to the current health threat, we're doing everything we can to keep you, your family, our staff, and our communities safe. You may notice some differences when you arrive for your appointment.

To minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus, Bone & Joint has adopted "No Guest or Visitor" restrictions for people who are able to function independently.

Visitors may accompany people who are under age or who have cognitive or behavioral disabilities.  For loved ones or guests of patients who would like to be part of the visit, but do not meet the guest/visitor requirements, they have the option to participate via speakerphone.  Please notify the provider if you'd like someone to be called.  

Exceptions to the No Guest or Visitor policy include: 

  • Children Under the age of 18 - One parent or guardian will be allowed to participate in the visit.

  • Patients with Cognitive or Behavioral Needs - Patients who have intellectual or developmental disabilities, who lack decision-making capacity, may have one support person if assistance is needed for safety or care.

Everyone who enters a Bone & Joint facility will be screened, will have their temperature taken, and will be required to wear a mask.  We suggest people use our online check-in for their appointment (when possible), to eliminate time spent in the waiting room.

The leadership team is assessing the situation daily, following the CDC and Department of Health Services (DHS) recommendations. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.


You can help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Your health, the health of our staff, and the health of our community depend on it.

If you know you’ve been exposed to the highly contagious coronavirus, self-quarantine and let us and others know.

If you have a fever higher than 100.4 and a dry cough call your primary care doctor and ask what you should do.

If it’s hard to breathe, call 9-1-1.

Even with mild symptoms, you can still spread the disease which will be fatal for some.

We’re screening patients for symptoms during pre-appointment calls and check-ins. We also are:

  • Asking employees and patients who feel sick to stay home,
  • Asking people who have been in close contact (6 feet or less) of someone who has tested positive to self-quarantine,
  • Aggressively cleaning and disinfecting all common-use surfaces in our clinics,
  • Washing our hands before and after patient visits, and
  • Coughing or sneezing into tissues or into our elbows to contain the spread of germs.
