COVID-19 Precautions & Screenings

Tandem Health remains committed to the health and well-being of our Sumter community. Tandem Health is able to offer our patients a remote virtual visit if you are unable to come to the center. When you arrive at any of our centers, everyone entering the building will go through a screening checkpoint including a temperature check.
ALL patients, visitors, and staff are required to wear a mask at all times. Visits are limited to the patients only with a very few exceptions – only one person allowed with a pediatric patient or an adult who requires assistance.
