For Noran Neurological Clinic and Minnesota Diagnostic Center Patients:

Our providers and staff are asking patients about symptoms such as fever, cough and/or respiratory difficulty and about recent travel outside of the country in the last month. Our staff will be using guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to screen and reschedule patients who have potential symptoms or exposure to COVID-19. We are also asking patients to limit visitors attending appointments to only essential visitors. Essential visitors would be legal guardians or an agent who must be present with the patient for health care decisions. Other visitors are not allowed at this time.

For any questions about your appointment, or to reschedule, please call 612-879-1500.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
Noran Neurological Clinic

How can I help protect myself and others?

There are simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.
These include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid close contact (at least 3 feet away) with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a flexed elbow or tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home and contact your primary care provider if you develop symptoms, have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19.
