- Call the clinic number, posted on the sign, to let them know you are there and to receive further instructions.
- Patients who receive a test will be contacted by SRHD to share results of their test and provide further guidance, including when it is safe to return to work.
- The clinic is not able to re-test patients wanting documentation to return to work.
