Stay-At-Home Order

On March 23, Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb issued a Stay-At-Home Order until April 7 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This requires that all Indiana residents remain in their homes except when they are at work or for essential activities.

For our high-risk patients, including those who are 65 years and older and people with medical problems, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, lung disease (COPD and asthma) and conditions that suppress immune systems, we will do all we can to address all of your needs without having to bring you into the clinic during this time.

To help protect your health and safety, please monitor your symptoms closely. Should you experience a significant change in your health status, please call us at 888-580-1060. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911.

Patients should not bring anyone to their appointment, unless necessary, and make sure they are not joined by any individuals that are symptomatic.

The COVID-19 virus remains a serious threat to the health, safety and welfare of all residents of Indiana, and further efforts are needed to address, control and reduce the evolving threat.

Because this disease is primarily spread from person-to-person, it is essential that you adhere to the Stay-At-Home Order and do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

 

IUSB Medical Temporary Closure

Starting Wednesday, March 25, all personnel from HealthLinc IUSB Medical will be working from HealthLinc Southeast, located at 1708 High St. in South Bend until further notice. By combining our resources, we can serve our patients in the most effective way possible.

 

Temperature Screenings

All HealthLinc patients and visitors will receive a temperature screening when entering a clinic.  If a temperature greater than 100.4 degrees is detected, we will place you in a separate part of the waiting room or ask you to wait in your vehicle. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.

 

Optometry

For the safety of our patients and staff, we will be limiting our optometry services to emergency appointments only.  Optometry emergencies would include sudden loss of vision or change in vision, eye injuries or infections and lost or broken glasses. We will call to reschedule patients once we return to normal business operations.

 

Dental

Due to the growing concerns regarding COVID-19 and the safety of our patients and staff, we will be limiting our dental services at the recommendation of the American Dental Association to emergency dental procedures only.  Dental emergencies will be assessed by a dentist onsite.  We will call to reschedule patients once we return to normal business operations.
