As of April 20, Shenandoah Oncology will reopen our clinic after a temporary closure. During the time of our closure, our facilities were extensively cleaned and sanitized. Additionally, we have completed a comprehensive evaluation and response coordinated with the Virginia Department of Health and have concluded that it is safe to resume treatment in our clinic. The wellbeing of our patients continues to be our top priority. We are instating additional preventive measures to ensure a safe care environment, including:

  • Enhanced screening of anyone entering the facility.
  • Requirement of anyone entering the building to wear a face covering. We will provide procedure masks to patients.
  • The operational flow in our building has been modified to allow maximize spacing between individuals in our facility.

We know how difficult and stressful this time is for patients and their families. Our care team will continue to evaluate the most appropriate way to provide continued treatment for each patient during the pandemic, whether in person at our office or by telemedicine. We’re here for you! Always.
