Update: Safety measures for patients and staff

As we continue to see a gradual reduction in COVID-19 cases in our community, UW Medicine is welcoming more patients back for in-person visits. With that comes a variety of measures to keep patients and staff safe. Lisa Brandenburg, president of UW Medicine hospitals and clinics, offers rationale for those steps, which include proactive COVID-19 testing for all patients before surgical procedures and mandatory screening of all UW Medicine staff. There is also universal masking and mandatory health screening of all UW Medicine staff.

Hear more about the new measures in the video soundbites below.
