Patient & Staff Safety

Please bring your own face mask or cloth covering.

We require all patients, visitors and staff to wear a face covering or mask while on our campuses to guard against COVID-19 transmission.

Travelling to Our Clinic for Care

When travelling to our clinic in Harley Street try your best to limit your exposure to human contact for instance when making rest or food stops.

  • Wear a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth in public, including during travel.
  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • It’s especially important to clean your hands after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Bring any medicines you may need for the duration of your trip.
  • When you must stop, minimize close contact between you and your companions and others.
  • Pack alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) in an easily accessible spot.
  • Pack disinfectant wipes (at least 70% alcohol) for surfaces.
  • If you must stay somewhere overnight, investigate and book room reservations in advance.

COVID-19 Vaccine Our Latest Guidance

at Harley Street Ultrasound we agree that you should get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it’s available to you.

  • View here the vaccines that have been approved for safe use.
  • Vaccine distribution will occur in phases, with those at highest risk in the earliest phases. We know the earliest group will include frontline workers and caregivers.
  • Practice social distancing, wear a mask properly outside your home, wash your hands frequently, and follow your state and local recommendations until the spread has stopped.

The vaccine may not be recommended to those with certain health conditions. Talk to your health care provider if you have questions about receiving the vaccine.

About COVID-19 & Flu

It’s especially important to get your flu vaccine this year, because the flu and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) will likely be circulating at the same time and cause similar symptoms.

The flu vaccine doesn’t protect you from COVID-19. But getting a flu vaccine could reduce flu symptoms that could be confused with COVID-19 symptoms.

Getting your flu vaccine can also help lessen the impact on health care providers and hospitals by reducing the number of people with severe flu and hospitalized with the flu.
