Community Partner Update: Shannon Medical Center

Post Date:05/01/2020 9:52 AM

Testing

Similar to other places in the country, Shannon is experiencing a shortage in testing supplies for COVID-19 that is limiting our ability for widespread testing. At this time, we are only able to test individuals with symptoms identified by the CDC, including: cough or shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; or at least two of the following symptoms: fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.

We continue to seek additional supplies so we can expand testing for our area. We will provide updates to our community as soon as we have adequate supplies for this. 

Masks

Following new rules from the Texas Medical Board and the Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ), all patients and visitors to any Shannon location are required to wear a mask. To ensure we have adequate supply of masks to serve all of our patients, we ask that you bring your personal mask to your appointment. All Shannon providers and staff will also be wearing masks in all public and patient areas. Thank you for your help in ensuring a safe environment for all of our patients and staff.
