COVID-19 Information

At Medical Park we strive to keep up with all things COVID to keep our patients and staff healthy and strong.

contagion probability

Adaptations in clinic include:

  • Universal masking for all adults in clinic: staff and patients alike.
  • Social distancing and escalated infection control and cleaning protocols in public clinic areas.
  • Entry and daily staff screening for illness.
  • Telemedicine visits. Check with your insurance company on whether this is a covered benefit.
  • Drive-up, minimal contact testing site for respiratory illnesses.

Coronavirus testing at MPFC:

  • We offer rapid result, molecular coronavirus testing in our lab through both Abbott and Cepheid platforms. When indicated, we can send samples for PCR testing. Samples may be collected during a provider visit or through our drive-up service.
  • As thoughtful stewards of nationally limited coroanvirus testing resources, we follow CDC guidelines on whom to test and when in the course of their illness and/or exposure to obtain a sample. See the links on the bottom of this page or call our coronavirus testing team for more information.
  • Asymptomatic, established patients may be eligible for coronavirus testing without a provider visit. Call to speak with our coronavirus testing team nurse to see if you qualify.
  • All new patients to MPFC will need a provider visit, either in clinic or via telemedicine, prior to coronavirus testing. If you have not been to MPFC in the last three years and would like a coronavirus test without a provider appointment, please call 211 or visit the Alaska testing site locator for information on other testing site options.
  • Coronavirus antibody testing is available upon consultation with a provider. Antibody testing is generally not covered by insurance and requires payment at the time of service.
