Coming to our office?
Please observe the following precautions
InterMed follows U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and keep our patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you’re experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, call your InterMed primary care team before coming into the office.
We’ll be updating this page regularly, so please check back before your next office visit.
Visits are by appointment only (no walk-ins please)
We do not allow walk-in visits at any of our practice sites, including our lab locations. Please call your physician’s office for an in-office or telehealth appointment to ensure you receive care in the most appropriate way and location. If you have an office visit that requires blood work, vaccines, X-rays or other care, we will do our best to schedule them all on the same day.
Starting May 1, 2023, masking will no longer be mandatory at InterMed facilities. For those individuals with a cough or other cold symptoms, we will still require masks that cover the mouth and nose. This is important for the health and safety of other patients and team members.
We decided to make this change in our masking policy only after a careful analysis of COVID rates in Southern Maine. Prevalence of the disease has been low, vaccination rates are high and COVID-related hospitalizations continue to decline. Everyone is welcome to mask if they wish. If you choose to mask and would be more comfortable if your care team does as well, please let us know and we will wear one.
Precautions that remain unchanged include:
- If you have symptoms, you will need to take an at-home COVID test within 48 hours of an in-person visit. If your result is negative, you may proceed as planned. Please notify us of your symptoms and negative test and wear a mask in our facilities. If your result is positive, please isolate and call us to discuss options.
- We will continue to make masks available at all entrances to our offices.
- Our staff will mask when caring for patients with symptoms or who are COVID-positive.
InterMed is offering telehealth services to support the health and well-being of our patients and to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. Telehealth services are available for patients needing care for certain qualifying conditions.
