Businesses and organizations are making daily announcements about closures and operations during the ongoing concern about COVID-19.

  • Marshfield Clinic Health System and Security Health Plan have established the COVID-19 Community Support Fund. The purpose is to provide financial resources quickly and easily to local community organizations who can help “flatten the curve” by addressing local needs and issues associated with coronavirus. The Community Support Fund will distribute up to $400,000 to initiate or sustain efforts focused on addressing community needs associated with food insecurity, childcare, elder care, emergency transportation or other challenges due to the statewide public health emergency. Eligible organizations include 501(3) non-profits, local government agencies, public health departments and school districts. Non-501c organizations may partner with another 501c to apply for funding. Additional eligibility and funding information, and an application available at https://marshfieldclinic.smapply.org/prog/COVID-19.
  • All patients, visitors and staff at Marshfield Medical Center—Beaver Dam will undergo a brief screening each day to assure they are healthy and do not have any indicators that suggest they may need further evaluation for coronavirus. This screening includes answering a few questions and having your temperature taken. Patients and visitors may find it helpful to arrive a few minutes early to allow for the screening to be completed. For more information, visit marshfieldclinic.org/specialties/infectious-diseases/coronavirus-update.
  • Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam is suspending all elective ambulatory and inpatient procedures, and non-urgent ambulatory visits. Each patient who will be impacted by this change is being called to reschedule their appointment. Elective is defined as any procedure that, if delayed 30 to 60 days, would not jeopardize a patient’s health. Similarly, non-urgent ambulatory visits are those where delay would not negatively affect a patient’s health.
