Screenings at all Mount Nittany Health facilities

Mount Nittany Health implements a screening process for all facilities. This is an important measure we are taking to protect our patients, staff, and community against the spread of COVID-19.

The screening process will include key questions based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Temperature checks will be available.

  1. Do you have a cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, headache, congestion, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, or loss of taste or smell?
  2. Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
  3. Are you currently awaiting COVID-19 test results for suspicion of COVID-19?
  4. Do you have a close contact or member of your household who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or who is being tested or awaiting test results for suspicion of COVID-19 in the past 30 days?
  5. Have you traveled outside of Pennsylvania in the past 14 days?

Screenings at Mount Nittany Medical Center

Mount Nittany Health allows one visitor to accompany or visit patients at Mount Nittany Medical Center, Emergency Department, and CANCER CARE PARTNERSHIP locations. All visitors will undergo a screening process and be required to wear a mask for the duration of their stay. If a visitor does not have a mask, one will be provided. Any visitor who does not pass the screening process will be informed of the policy and be asked to wait in their vehicle or return home.

Screenings at all Mount Nittany Health facilities

Currently, Mount Nittany Health allows one visitor/caregiver to accompany patients at Mount Nittany Physician Group offices and outpatient locations.

All visitors will undergo a screening process and be required to wear a mask for the duration of their stay. If a visitor does not have a mask, one will be provided. Any visitor who does not pass the screening process will be informed of the policy and be asked to wait in their vehicle or return home.

Our team will work as quickly as possible to safely and effectively complete the screenings; however, patients and visitors should prepare accordingly and allow extra time for this process.
