Providence St. Vincent is making it easier and safer with its new drive-up clinic. After making an appointment with their doctor, parents can drive up to the clinic where they’ll be screened for COVID-19. Nurses will also instruct parents how to give a thorough exam so the baby only comes in contact with its parents.

The "no-contact exams" are free. If you’re interested, call your primary doctor to set up an appointment.
