Clinic reopening

Re-opening dates may vary by clinic as staff and providers transition back to their previous locations. Patients will receive information related to these changes during scheduling and through appointment reminders and other means of communication.

Patients will be required to wear masks at their visits and they’ll also receive a temperature check and be asked if they have any symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19.

Patients can schedule appointments by calling the Athens Clinic.

All Aspirus locations continue to seek cloth mask donations.
