Visitor Policy

You're being careful, we are too.

The health and safety of our patients our number one priority!  In order to maintain social distancing, our visitor policies have been updated to reflect the limitations that the COVID-19 pandemic has created.  Concord OB/GYN is currently restricting visitors. 

  • Birth partners, parents of patients under 18, and companions for individuals with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, may accompany you to your visit.
  • No children or other family members are permitted.
  • Birth partners should refrain from entering the building until their partner contacts them to join them for their visit.
  • All patients and visitors are screened and are required to wear a mask into the office.

If you are having any of the following symptoms:

  • fever/chills
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • runny nose
  • nasal congestion
  • new shortness of breath
  • new loss of taste or smell

Please contact the main office at 978-369-7627 to discuss your symptoms with a nurse to see if a telemedicine visit is right for you.
