COVID-19 Resources

COVID-19 Resources

At CACRM, we are continually monitoring what is going on with the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is impacting your ability to receive infertility treatment and get pregnant.

In May 2020, we began our gradual reopening of the clinic to prepare for what we hope are June in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles.

We have compiled resources we hope you can use to learn more about the disease, how to prevent infection, and to prepare for infertility treatment and pregnancy.

COVID-19 Protections

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is an excellent source for you to learn how to protect yourself from COVID-19 infection. You should be particularly vigilant if you are considered in a high-risk category with an underlying pre-existing condition.

Four components of COVID-19 protection include:

  • Washing your hands vigorously for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or hand sanitizer, especially when you have been in contact with unknown surfaces.
  • Wearing a face mask to protect yourself and others when you are in public and can not be six feet apart.
  • Being socially distant by not congregating in groups and being at least six feet apart from a person with whom you do not live.
  • Covering coughs and sneezes.
