Update Regarding COVID-19

March 15, 2020

To our valued healthcare partners:

As you are aware, the spread of COVID-19 is an increasing public health threat to our community. We
want to assure you that at Assured Imaging (a Rezolut Medical Imaging company), the health and
safety of our patients and employees is our top priority and that we are taking all necessary
precautions to ensure the well-being of our mutual patients and our staff. We are closely monitoring the
CDC and local health department updates and recommendations and are taking several steps to help
mitigate the risk of disease transmission. We wanted to outline a few of the precautions that we have
been taking as a company at our imaging centers and with our mobile mammography and ultrasound
services:
1. All staff has been instructed to wash or sanitize their hands between each patient. We are also ensuring that all imaging equipment gets properly cleaned between each patient.

2. For the time being, we will not be able to see any patients for imaging that have active symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath at our imaging centers and our mobile units. We have instructed our staff to reschedule any patients who present for an exam with these symptoms out at least 2 weeks. While we recognize that this may be inconvenient for the patient, this is necessary for us to ensure the safety of our staff and other patients.

3. If you have any patients that are symptomatic with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, please do not schedule them for imaging with us at this time. If you have any patients that may need a chest x-ray for any acute respiratory symptoms, we kindly request that you refer them to the nearest hospital or urgent care. Assured Imaging’s centers are not a coronavirus diagnostic or treatment center, and we are not equipped with the proper protective equipment to handle these cases. We can perform chest x-rays for non-symptomatic patients for other routine indications, such as chronic TB screening and preoperative evaluations.

4. If any of our employees are feeling ill themselves, they will not be allowed to work, and we will follow CDC guidelines for healthcare workers regarding COVID-19.

We want to preserve the integrity of our centers and to be able to provide the highest quality of care for all of the other medical imaging needs we take care of daily. We are continuously assessing and implementing procedures to ensure that we can continue to provide important outpatient imaging services to our community as the hospitals and acute care facilities will undoubtedly become overwhelmed with caring for COVID-19 patients. Our national leadership team has created a task force that meets daily to follow any changes in this dynamic situation to ensure that we are staying up to date as the situation evolves. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. We are confident and optimistic that our collaboration with strong healthcare partners such as yourselves will help curtail this viral illness.
