Masks Are Encouraged

Updated April 3rd, 2023 – As you may have heard, Oregon healthcare settings are not required to wear masks beginning April 3rd. However, our clinic has a few exceptions:

  • Our providers and staff will continue to wear masks when seeing patients/families with respiratory symptoms.
  • We strongly encourage patients/families to wear a mask when exhibiting respiratory symptoms such as cough as well as fever or nausea.

  • When checking in, patients/families can let the front desk know if they feel more comfortable having their provider/medical assistant continue to wear masks. We understand that families may still be worried about contracting COVID at a healthcare facility, and we will respect our patients’ requests.
  • Our clinic will still provide masks for all patients, families and employees who wish to continue to wear them.
  • *Mask policies are subject to change, but we’ll keep our website/social media updated if this happens. Thank you everyone!*

June is PRIDE Month!

The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history – locally, nationally, and internationally.

Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBT Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS.

This uprising marks the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ Americans.

Our Gender Diversity Committee shares a few ways on how you can take part in PRIDE month and be an ally:

  • Share your pronouns.
  • Use gender neutral language.
  • Attend local events – Portland PRIDE Parade, July 21st
