All CCI locations are open and will continue to see patients. It is very important to protect the safety of all our patients, but particularly patients currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment. If possible, please only bring one guest and refrain from bringing small or school-aged children into the clinic. If a patient or their guest has been in contact with anyone recently exposed with a confirmed case of COVID-19, then please call our office before coming to your scheduled appointment. If you have a fever >100.4, a NEW onset of difficulty breathing, or a NEW onset of a cough, please call our office prior to your appointment. If you do not have a scheduled appointment, we ask that you contact your primary care provider. We know this is a stressful time for everyone. We are working diligently to keep our patients and employees healthy. We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know of any changes. Please remember to wash your hands frequently and practice safe social distancing!
