In Response to Measles Outbreak, CHEMED Announces Outdoor Triage Area to Protect Patients

Following the confirmation of several measles cases in Lakewood and the State’s official designation as an outbreak, CHEMED announced that an outdoor triage area has been set up outside their facility for the examination of all patients who exhibit potential measles symptoms.

CHEMED released the following statement to TLS:

“In accordance with the recommendations of the CDC and our physicians, patients exhibiting measles symptoms should not enter our facility until further notice, as they could potentially expose other CHEMED patients to the virus. Those patients will be examined in a special outdoor triage area, where they will receive first class medical care. If you suspect that you may have measles, please contact our office immediately and notify the receptionist of your symptoms. We encourage all other patients to continue visiting CHEMED without any concern. We will continue updating our patients and the general public as necessary.”
