Coronavirus Update - Important Announcement


Coronavirus Announcement & Updates

Posted on: March 21st, 2020 by Our Team

To our valued patients:

We hope you are all staying healthy and safe as we navigate our way through these unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a number of serious challenges to us all, especially here in the Vail Valley, where the outbreak has been particularly severe.

Due to careful advanced planning and the establishment of a community-wide task force two months ago, our partners at Vail Health have done exemplary work to ensure the safety of patients, staff and visitors to our facility, and have allowed the hospital to continue to provide care for those most in need.

At The Steadman Clinic, your well-being is our highest priority. We have practiced stringent infection-prevention protocols to help keep everyone safe and healthy. If you have a question about an upcoming appointment, please contact us at (970) 238-8093.

For official COVID-19 Eagle County resources, please visit ecemergency.org or call the Colorado Health Emergency Line (CO-Help) at 1-877-462-2911. Additional helpful online resources are available from the CDC.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

What you can do:

You can help prevent the spread of coronavirus by following some basic practices: wash your hands often with soap and water (20-30 seconds), use hand sanitizer as a substitute; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cough or sneeze into your arm/elbow and/or please cover your nose/mouth with a tissue (dispose in the covered trash bin); frequently clean and disinfect surfaces and objects.

It’s clear that the coronavirus has deeply impacted our community. On behalf of every member of The Steadman Clinic team, please be assured we are focused on your health and well-being every day. Together, we can get through these challenging times.
