COVID-19 Update

Lone Star Endoscopy is observing the CDC’s recommended preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Our number one priority is the safety of our patients and staff. We have implemented the following measures to ensure safety:

  • Before your procedure, we ask that you self-monitor for Covid-19 like symptoms. If you notice fever or develop any symptoms, please call us immediately. We will need to reschedule your appointment.
  • Masking is currently optional in our facility, although changes in guidance can occur rapidly. You are welcome to wear a mask, and if you prefer your care team to also wear a mask, please let our registration team know. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your visit with us.
  • We continue to limit visitors in the building to ensure the safety of all of our patients. Visitors will be allowed to wait in the lobby but only 1 visitor can join you in recovery while you wake up and speak to the physician if you chose.
  • We continue to disinfect high touch areas and adhere to all equipment and environmental infection control guidelines.

We are asking patients to join us in additional efforts, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before and after eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and sanitize your hands
  • Avoid shaking hands to potentially prevent transmission
