March 16, 2020

Here are the steps Fairbanks is taking to keep our patients, caregivers, loved ones, family and friends safe and healthy.

  • All outpatient programming is currently cancelled.
  • No walk-ins are being accepted at the Access Center; urgent admissions only.
  • All meetings and classes are cancelled. To find another 12-step meeting in the area, visit  indyaa.org or naindiana.org.
  • No visitors will be allowed in our buildings except one person per patient in access.
  • Screening of all people entering our buildingswill be done daily and a color-coded wristband or sticker will identify those who have been screened.
  • No vendors will be on site unless critical to patient care and they have been screened.
  • All business meetings will be virtual, not in-person.
  • Those who are able to work remotely will do so.
  • Lunch deliveries will not be allowed.
  • Volunteers over the age of 60 or with serious health issues are asked to stay home.
  • All work travel has been suspended, including within the state.
  • We are asking caregivers also to strongly consider avoiding any personal travel during this time.

As always, everyone at Fairbanks is encouraged to use good practices such as frequent hand washing, having 3 feet of social distancing space, refrain from touching their faces, and staying home if unwell.

Please take a moment and hear from Dr. Yeleti on the importance of instituting these procedures:
