COVID-19: Patient Safety Message

At Burnsville Family Physicians, the health and safety of our patients and staff is always our number one priority. With this in mind, we are continuing to closely monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.  In addition to staying in constant contact with the Minnesota Department of Health, we are staying up-to-date with the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).

  • In an effort to keep everyone safe, we are asking patients experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) to NOT visit our locations, and instead call to reschedule appointments.  If your travel has been identified as Level 3 risk by the CDC with a return date in the past 14 days, we request that you call and reschedule for a later time. 

  • We require all patients to wear masks at our clinic at this time.

  • Visitor Restrictions: We are not allowing any visitors to accompany a patient into the building. Note: Only exception being compassionate care/elderly & pediatric patients. 

  • We will continue taking extra precautions to provide the safest environment possible for our patients and staff.  For any questions about your appointment, please call 952-435-0303.  

The steps to protect yourself from COVID-19 are generally the same as those for the flu:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a household cleaning spray or wipe.

For information on prevention, symptoms and what to do if you’re feeling sick, please call the Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline at 651-201-3920.
