Carteret Health Care to resume elective care starting May 4


MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WNCT) Beginning May 4, Carteret Health Care will begin resuming services and contacting patients to reschedule along with seeing new patients.

Centered around safety, CHC’s plan is a phased approach and the hospital plans to start reopening gradually and accelerate at a rate that does not outpace its ability to provide a safe environment for all involved. 

Carteret Health Care will continue using advanced safety protocols including:

  • Requiring universal masking for all patients, physicians, staff and support persons, (patients and support persons are encouraged to bring their own face covering, such as a cloth mask)
  • Facility-wide screening for all patients, physicians, staff, and support persons, who enter CHC
  • Social distancing
  • Visitor restrictions
  • Hand hygiene

These along with other safety precautions such as increasing testing capacity and monitoring personal protective equipment will continue.
