Your health and safety have always been our priorities. Because of the COVID-19 guidelines, we will be taking new infection prevention steps for this screening event.
Men attending the screening will be screened when they arrive – this includes a questionnaire and taking your temperature. You will not be admitted to the screening if you have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher and/or you have other flu-like symptoms (cough, sore throat, body aches, diarrhea).
Masking:
Men attending the screening should wear their own personal mask when they arrive. As part of our usual routine, Riverside team members will be wearing personal protective equipment (mask, gloves and eye protection) during your screening.
Cleaning:
Patient rooms will be cleaned and sanitized between each screening visit with an advanced high-level cleaner. All nonclinical areas (waiting room, desks, lobbies) will continue to be disinfected multiple times a day.
Hand hygiene:
All patients will be given guidelines on effective hand sanitizing using our existing hand sanitizers on-site. All staff will continue to sanitize their hands in and out of patient rooms.
