COVID-19 Information for Fertility Patients
Our practices in midtown Manhattan and Scarsdale are open and we are also offering virtual telehealth visits for your convenience and safety. Keeping you and our clinical team safe is our top priority. Whether you receive your care virtually or in-person, you can count on receiving the same great quality of care that you’ve come to expect from Columbia University Fertility Center.
We require that you wear a mask during any in-person visit at our facilities, regardless of your vaccination status, for your protection and for the protection of our clinical team.
For your safety and the safety of our staff and other patients, if you have been exposed to COVID-19 or may be at risk, we ask that you inform us and postpone treatment until cleared by your primary care provider.
For our pregnant patients, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19 compared to non-pregnant people. The CDC recommends that all people over the age of 12 should get the COVID-19 vaccine, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, were recently pregnant, or are planning to become pregnant. Getting vaccinated significantly lowers your risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated.
