Depending on the clinic, various methods are available to the population:

- Need for a face-to-face appointment determined by the doctor or the professional;
- Screening questionnaire in connection with COVID-19 by phone before the appointment;
- Screening questionnaire at the entrance to hospitals;
- Mandatory hand washing and wearing of the mask strongly encouraged;
- Individualized support for users at risk or carriers of COVID-19 in order to ensure that all public health rules are followed during their visit to the hospital.
