Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

We are proactively working to keep our patients and employees safe and to support local communities and local hospital systems.

Touchstone Imaging remains vigilant in our effort to support local communities, patients and hospital systems with outpatient imaging during this unprecedented pandemic. Our outpatient facilities service patients who need radiology exams that don’t have to be performed in a hospital. Our facilities remain operational while strictly adhering to CDC, local task force and hospital partner recommendations and guidelines. We are focused on accommodating our patients and referring physicians and to help reduce the strain on local hospitals. With the common interest of “flattening the curve,” we are working to do our part to lower the rate of exposure and the impact to the high-risk population.

What we are doing to keep you safe:

As global and domestic cases of 2019 COVID-19 cases rise, Touchstone has implemented additional measures to protect the health of our patients and employees.

    • Developments from the CDC, physician and local task forces and local hospital partners are actively monitored and enforced
    • All patients must have a scheduled appointment prior to visiting our site
    • All patients are pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to their appointments
    • We are requesting that patients do not bring visitors to their appointments unless they need assistance and the visitor is over 18 years old
    • We are monitoring medical supply chain issues to ensure our employees and patients have adequate supplies

How to Protect Yourself

COVID-19 is spread through person-to-person contact and by coming into contact with infected surfaces. You can help protect yourself and limit the spread of disease with these tips:

      • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
      • Stay home when you are sick.
      • Avoid touching your eyes,  nose, and mouth.
      • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and always after using the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
      • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Signs and symptoms of infection with the new coronavirus can be mild to severe and include:

      • Fever
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath

Symptoms may appear  5-14 days after exposure.

Those with underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, or chronic lung disease should take extra precautions to avoid unnecessary exposure. Learn more about symptoms from the CDC.
