COVID-19 FAQs

 

Will Air Methods stop service because of COVID-19?

Our first priority is the safety of our employees and those we serve. If we can safely provide our lifesaving services to the your community, we will continue operations.

What do we do if the patient needs to be transported but is COVID-19 positive or suspected to have it?

First, please notify AirCom/dispatch if you have a patient who is confirmed/suspected COVID-19. This will allow our crew to better prepare to take the proper precautions (including wearing PPE) that we do for all patients with respiratory infections.  

We will provide quality medical care to our patients without regard to suspected or known communicable disease diagnoses. If safe transport is not possible due to lack of PPE, an alternate mode of transport will be recommended for the patient.

What are we doing to keep aircraft, and equipment safe from Coronavirus?

We follow CDC recommendations regarding disinfection of the transport vehicle after transporting a patient with a potential or confirmed case of COVID-19.
