Closeup of Coronavirus | CU Advanced Reproductive Medicine | Denver, CO

At this time, we are happy to announce we have restarted the process of providing new fertility treatments.

Future parents can schedule in-person (as appropriate) or telemedicine appointments to get started with fertility evaluation and treatment immediately.

University of Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine (CU-ARM) has implemented new safety measures to comply with COVID-19 restrictions. We are still closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus disease 2019 and novel coronavirus (meaning a new strain of the coronavirus family).

We wish you all good health during this trying time – and remember, we are here for you!

What if I think I have coronavirus symptoms?

If you have significant symptoms, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. Please review with your nurse if you develop symptoms during a treatment cycle. We will then triage to assess how best to manage the cycle depending on severity of symptoms.

We ask that you minimize the number of people who accompany you on visits. No individual (adult or child) with a fever or respiratory symptoms should accompany you.

As a reminder, children cannot accompany you for procedure visits including ultrasounds. We cannot provide childcare during visits.

Coronavirus prevention

The best prevention is things you should already be doing to minimize normal influenza and colds.

  1. Wash hands well and often. Soap and water are best. Wash hands for at least 20 seconds at a time and dry hands well.
  2. If soap and water are not available, hand sanitizer is a good option (if you can get it).
  3. Try to minimize touching your face. Use tissues to rub your nose etc. If no tissue is available, use your arm not your hand to touch your face.
  4. Cough into your arm not your hands.
  5. Do not use any communal foods that other people may directly touch: avoid grocery store samples and buffets. Make sure serving utensils are used for any shared meals.
  6. We recommend using forms of greeting other than hand shaking: elbow touches, hand over heart or a Namaste greeting.

As information is changing daily, our protocols may also evolve, with the understanding we are doing our best to play our role in keeping our patients and staff healthy.
