COVID-19 Precautions

Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center is excited to be restarting our Prevention on the Go program again. While routine cancer screenings are important in detecting potentially deadly cancers, keeping our participants and staff safe during COVID-19 is just as important. When you come to a screening, here’s what you can expect:

  • Increased frequency of our cleaning and disinfecting practices for high-touch areas
  • Participants and staff are required to wear facemasks
  • Appointments for all screenings will be required
  • Reduced numbers of people on board the mobile unit at any given time
  • Increased amounts of time between participants to allow appropriate time for cleaning
  • Reduced onsite paperwork
  • Waiting areas will be in vehicles or locations at least 6 feet apart. We will also have a texting system to notify you when we are ready for you.

If you have delayed being screened during the pandemic, we encourage you to contact your provider to reschedule your appointment as soon as possible. Please contact your doctor regarding appropriate screening, or call us at (225) 215-1234.
