Corona Virus Update

Coronavirus Update made to UniHealth Primary Care’s protocols and procedures in response to COVID-19. Please check back for periodic updates.


To our community,

Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our patients and employees. As cases of COVID-19 continue to be diagnosed in South Florida, we are modifying some of our operations and care protocols to protect the health and safety of our community.

  • Only patients will be permitted into our office. No visitors will be allowed to accompany them into the lobby.
  • If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 via travel or direct contact with someone that has been diagnosed with the virus, the following steps should be taken based on CDC recommendations:
  • In an abundance of caution, you should stay home and isolate yourself for 2 weeks starting from the day you believe you were exposed, even if you are not showing any symptoms.
  • If during that period of time you develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, please call is first for medical advice.
  • If you become severely ill, especially if you are elderly or have serious underlying health conditions, you should immediately seek care at an emergency room, but call ahead of your arrival to alert staff.

The CDC outlines many effective ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from illness including:

  • Covering your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Using a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not readily available.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or using the inside of your elbow.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Distancing yourself from other people especially if you are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Staying home if you are sick, except to get medical care.

We pride ourselves on being well-prepared to address whatever challenges come our way whether it is a natural disaster, public health emergency or other crisis. We will continue to provide updates as needed to keep our community informed of the latest developments.

For more information follow up CDC guidelines, and the Florida Department of Health.
