Coronavirus Update

Blog  |  COVID-19

Laurel Fertility Care is closely monitoring news and reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and local government authorities regarding the new Coronavirus disease: COVID-19  to ensure the safety of our patients and employees. We know that new information is changing daily, even hourly and we are taking numerous actions to address the changes as they occur.

Until further notice, we are implementing a single guest policy with the exception of spouse or partner during retrieval and transfer. We will be screening all patients upon arrival by filling out questionnaires and keeping our dedicated patient areas sterile and disinfected.

There is currently no recommendation to avoid or postpone a pregnancy due to SARS-CoV2/COVID-19. In fact, early data is reassuring that there is no increased susceptibility or severity among pregnant women, nor has there been any evidence of vertical transmission (from mother to baby). However, we are limiting non-essential visits and delaying new cycle starts to honor the “Shelter-In-Place” recommendation by the Bay Area Counties. We recognize that fertility treatment can be time-sensitive and will continue to assess and refine this decision as we learn more.

We are currently seeing New Patient appointments and In-Cycle patients in office and offer Telehealth consults for those that quality. For more information please utilize the following resources:
