Safety at TriCore’s Patient Care Centers
TriCore regards patient and staff safety as paramount, and we are taking a many-layered approach to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus at our Patient Care Centers. Our sites are cleaned and sanitized regularly with extra attention to high-use areas. Our staff is fully trained in the modes of transmission and safety procedures in accordance with CDC recommendations. All locations have signage instructing patients to practice social distancing, and we limit the number of people accompanying a patient to only those requiring assistance or a guardian. When there is not enough lobby room to adequately social distance, we ask patients to wait outside or in their cars until it is their turn for collection, where it is logistically possible. Masks are available for patients, as appropriate.
NM Department of Health has deployed an online tool for you to look up your COVID-19 test results.
