Clinic and Contact Information

COVID-19 Precautions:

CANDLE has created a COVID-19-specific protocol to ensure the safety of participants and staff during study visits. In addition to mask requirements, COVID-19 screening questions, temperature checks, and sanitizing, CANDLE examiners have been trained to administer socially distanced cognitive assessments!

CANDLE’s COVID-19 Protocol was developed because CANDLE cares about participants’ health and safety. An overview of CANDLE’s safety protocol is below.

  • Masks required for everyone
  • Temperature checks upon arrival
  • Screening for COVID symptoms
  • Screening for isolation/quarantine
  • Sanitizing rooms thoroughly between visits & frequently touched surfaces several times per day
  • Only allow participants into the clinic (limited to only those required for communication or transportation)
  • Examiners trained on socially distanced testing & surveys
  • Examiners wear gloves when taking measurements and samples from participants
  • Hand sanitizer and soap and water available at all times
  • Sign-in sheet to perform contact tracing, if necessary
  • Some remote survey options
