Prevention

Medical Associates of Northwest Arkansas (MANA) has taken necessary safeguards to protect the health of our patients and families.  MANA clinics and staff are following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and checklists for patients who may have coronavirus.

Our physicians and staff are doing everything we can to keep our patients and families healthy. As the conditions change, we may update our practices and recommendations. Check here for updates. We appreciate your patience. The latest information on COVID-19 is available on the CDC website

Please help us prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

  • Stay safe at home! MANA is now offering TeleVisits. A TeleVisit is a real-time appointment by smartphone, tablet, or computer. Learn more and request an appointment.
  • Limit the visitors inside the clinic to only the patient and if appropriate, a parent or guardian. Spouses, grandparents, healthy children, and other family members should remain at home or in the family vehicle (with appropriate supervision) whenever possible.
  • Follow everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of the virus. 

What You Can Do To Protect Your Family

Follow everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses like COVID-19 and influenza.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based (greater than 60% alcohol) hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid crowded places and unnecessary travel.

Because of these precautions we are taking, you may experience a longer wait to be seen.  Please understand that we are committed to keeping you and your family members as healthy as possible. Thank you for your patience.
