An important message to our patients about COVID-19

To our valued Patients and Community Members,

Recognizing the ongoing and increasing uncertainty that coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing around the world, there is no higher priority than the health and well-being of our patients and employees. We understand the concern you may be experiencing and are committed to being flexible and responsive to the needs of our patients as the situation develops.

At the time of this communication, Sunlight Medical Services remains fully operational and will continue to meet your needs. We will keep you informed should anything change. Please see below for actions we all can take to help prevent the spread of the virus:

  • Notify a Sunlight MS staff member immediately if you feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.
  • You will be provided further direction and assistance contacting medical professionals about your condition.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, especially immediately after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
  • Avoid Contact with Others
  • Clinic staff will minimize your stay in the clinic, as much as is possible, while still providing all of the services you need.
  • Video/telehealth counseling sessions are available and are recommended as an alternative to you coming into the clinic. Notify your counselor if you would like to set up a video counseling session.

We also wanted to update you on the recent actions we have taken to protect our patients and employees in response to the outbreak:

  • Enhanced cleaning in addition to normal nightly cleaning of high-traffic areas and touch points
  • Employees have been reminded to regularly sanitize keyboards, tables, counters, telephones, and other common areas. Extra disinfectant wipes have been provided in common areas
  • Installed additional signage with precautionary measures people should take to avoid spreading infectious diseases
  • Reviewed our visitor policy, temporarily limiting building access to essential visitors only

Rest assured, we are continuing to monitor this rapidly developing situation and are committed to being responsive as it evolves. We are engaged with state and local agencies and are actively monitoring the CDC and AZDHS websites for guidance and will provide updates and alerts as it becomes necessary.
