Policy Update 9.2.2020

The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services [CARS] had been hoping the governor would get us to level 3 so we could begin to allow partners and spouses in the offices. We are not at level 3 however, current state guidelines are allowing for partners, spouses and close family members to visit in hospitals and nursing homes.

At this time, CARS has decided to relax our policy and allow partners and spouses into the practice on a limited basis. Partners and spouses will be subject to the same rigid health screening and temperature checks as patients. Currently, this would mostly include:

• Partners/spouses at pregnancy scans

• Partners/spouses at IUI

• Partner/spouses in PACU at transfers

• Partners/spouses or family members needed at other visits to provide translation services
