We are utilizing all guidance available from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Georgia Department of Health to institute safety precautions.
If you or anyone in your household is currently exhibiting flu-like symptoms (cold, fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath), please seek treatment from your primary care provider. Additionally, please call our office at (404) 228-7199 before coming to our facility to determine how best to proceed.
Pathways Fertility is fully operational and we are performing all fertility treatments at this time: IVF, IUI, FET, egg freezing, and frozen donor egg cycles.
Onsite safety protocols
Please be advised of the following updates to Pathways Fertility operations.
Effective Wednesday, March 30, masks are optional for patients and staff who are asymptomatic and have no known exposures to COVID within the previous 5 days.
Per CDC guidelines, if you have been exposed to someone with COVID and you are not vaccinated, please wear a mask and quarantine for 5 days.
COVID positive patients and staff must stay at home for 5 days and isolate from others.
Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind:
- Wash your hands regularly throughout the day.
- Use hand sanitizers.
- Avoid touching your face- especially eyes, nose and mouth – with your hands.
- Cover your mouth with your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
If you are onsite for your appointment and you prefer that the staff you interact with wear masks, just ask. We are happy to do so. We want you to be comfortable.
