Vineyard Medical Care has put in place new scheduling protocols to provide for social distancing, according to an announcement from the clinic Thursday.

The State Road facility is locked during normal office hours. All primary care patients with scheduled appointments will be offered a video telehealth appointment should they so desire.

All walk-in patients are asked to call 508-693-4400 to schedule a video telehealth appointment. Following the telehealth visit, patients whom providers feel should be seen in person will be asked to come to the office in Tisbury, across from the down-Island Cronig’s.

After arriving at the parking lot, patients should call the front desk to announce their arrival. They will then be admitted to the waiting room and seen by a providers.

Possible Covid-19 patients will be offered a video telehealth appointment, and, if appropriate, referred directly to the hospital for further evaluation.
