*Patients who are considered Fully Vaccinated are those who have received either two doses of Moderna or Pfizer, or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
**Patients who are considered Unvaccinated are those who have  NOT received two doses of Pfizer or Moderna and have not received one dose of Johnson and Johnson.
As always, patient privacy remains at the forefront of all decisions regarding data disclosure. Therefore we do not release data when the census for vaccination status falls below two or fewer.

Staying safe is essential. So is your health.

As always, our top priority is safety, for our patients, visitors as well as our caregivers and surrounding communities. We want you to get the care you need while staying safe during your visit to Centra.  We’ll do our part to prevent infection. We need you to do your part, too.

Here’s what we’re doing

  • All caregivers are required to wear face masks and receive two doses of the COVID vaccine.
  • We’re sanitizing rooms between patients and cleaning public areas often.
  • Providing the option to connect with a doctor through live video chat on Centra 24/7.

Here’s what we’re asking you to do when you visit one of our hospitals, emergency rooms or practices

  • Everyone who comes to Centra's hospitals and CMG practices must wear a face mask. We encourage you to bring yours from home.
  • Patients who are having surgery or other procedures that require general anesthesia will be tested for COVID-19 infection before their procedure.  See map below
