ARA Response to Coronavirus

The ARA team is here
for Central Texas.

When you visit our facilities

In order to assist in minimizing the spread of the COVID-19 in our community, we have made adjustments to our care processes. This includes screening patients, enhanced cleaning services, and limiting visitors to the imaging centers.

Imaging center patient guidelines

Patients will be surveyed upon entry for COVID-19 to ensure anyone entering is not at high risk for COVID-19 infection.

  • ARA will image all patients of all ages, even those experiencing fever with respiratory symptoms that are not suspected to be related to COVID-19. Exceptions are when a patient is:
    • Positive for COVID-19 and has NOT completed the set recovery timeframe/criteria, which are:
      • 5 days after symptom onset or, if asymptomatic, 5 days after positive test results.
      • Resolution of fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of medication.
      • Improvement of other COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Pending COVID-19 test results due to COVID-19 symptoms.
      • If pending test results are due to a requirement not related to COVID-19 (i.e. pre-surgery requirement), the patient will be imaged.
  • If patients are unable to be imaged at ARA due to the above COVID-19 scenarios, our staff will refer them to their primary care provider or a hospital for imaging.
  • All employees and patients are required to wear a mask. If you have your own mask, please wear it. For the safety of all, please do not wear bandanas, neck gaiters, or masks with valves.

Visitor rules and caregiver screening

The imaging center lobby/waiting rooms are fully open. In order to allow seating for all patients and essential visitors/caregivers, we have made the following changes:

  • Any visitors who are not essential caregivers will be asked to remain outside the imaging center in the car. Exceptions are:
    • Pediatric patients will be permitted to bring two parent visitors.
    • Obstetric ultrasound patients will be permitted to bring one non-essential visitor.
    • Breast imaging consult patients are allowed one non-essential visitor.
    • Evening exam patients are allowed non-essential visitors after 6pm.
  • Essential caregivers and approved visitors will be screened.
