Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Appointments and access

Scripps physicians and providers are available, both virtually and in-person, to address your medical needs.

Want to see a Scripps health care provider without a trip to the doctor’s office? Video visits may be an option for minor illnesses and injuries, as well as follow-up visits and consultations that don’t require an in-person physical exam with a primary care provider or specialist. Video Visits are available for patients who have the MyScripps app on their desktop, smartphone or tablet.

Are waiting rooms safe?

At Scripps, procedures and protocols are in place to ensure safety for everyone who enters a Scripps facility. This includes isolating patients with coronavirus symptoms, and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols for all facilities and equipment.

Do I need to wear a mask at Scripps?

Masks are no longer required when visiting a Scripps facility, although they are still highly recommended. We highly recommend visitors consider wearing a mask depending on their circumstances and individual risk. Masks are still required for patients having respiratory illness symptoms.

Can I bring someone with me to the clinic or hospital?
