COVID-19 Information

8/9/21 COVID-19 POLICY UPDATE,

EFFECTIVE 8/9/2021 The safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff is our #1 priority. Effective 8/9/2021, we will no longer allow visitors into our facility. The only exception will be one healthy, screened, and masked adult with any child under the age of 18.

In addition, effective 8/16/2021, all patients will require a negative COVID-19 test 3-4 days prior to any surgical procedure, regardless of vaccination status. Testing will be scheduled and performed through our office. Patients will receive a phone call with further information. We appreciate your understanding!

IMPORTANT We do test patients at Jackson Surgery Center. As part of your pre-op planning, prior arrangements must be made with Jackson Surgery Center to perform the test within 72 hours or 4 days prior to your procedure. After your test with us, please wear a mask at all times and take precautions to prevent exposure to illness including avoiding crowds and public transportation.

Please inform us if you think you are exposed to anyone with Coronavirus before the date of your procedure. Patients presenting without laboratory evidence of a negative Covid-19 test will be rescheduled. A negative test report from a laboratory is required.

You will not receive test results before the day of your procedure unless you test positive. You may receive a phone call the day before your procedure to ask medical history questions. If not, the nurses will get your information the day of your procedure. Please bring a list of your medications with you.

A letter stating you were negative is not accepted. Your Covid-19 test must be a PCR Molecular test not a rapid test if you are tested outside of our facility. Patients utilizing a lab other than Core Labs or LabCorp will need to present with a copy of their test results or have results sent to:
Fax  (334)293-6880Email  missy.sallas@jscal.com
Covid-19 testing is covered by most major insurance plans. 

We will update our policy on an as-needed basis.
