STAY SAFE DURING COVID 19 PANDEMIC
Just a reminder that Children’s Medical Group will continue to follow CDC recommendations and AAP guidelines to protect our patients and our staff.
We stress that you continue to keep up with well child visits, particularly in babies 2 years and under, who need important vaccinations. We also offer telemedicine instead of in-person visits whenever possible.
You may expect continued enhanced precautions in our office such as making well visit appointments in the morning and sick visits in the afternoon, using different exam rooms for sick and well patients, waiting in your car until we are ready to see your child, limiting patients to one adult caregiver in the office when possible, and making payments online and appointments by phone rather than at the front desk.
We ask all children age 2 and older and parents to please wear a mask or face covering when in the office, to protect us from exposures, and we will wear masks in our office to protect you.
We strongly advise that all families continue to follow these safety practices:
-- Stay home as much as possible.
-- Please do not take your children to gyms, bowling alleys, or movie theaters.
-- Avoid non-essential services, such as those offered at nail salons, barber shops, etc.
-- Opt for pickup or delivery instead of dining in at restaurants.
-- We recommend not attending in-person religious services, while recognizing the hardship this may place.
-- Please wear a mask whenever in public to protect others.
-- Remember to wash your hands!
Remember that both adults and children can be asymptomatic carriers of coronavirus. That means you may infect someone else despite having no symptoms. It also means you can become infected by being near someone with no symptoms. And although children do tend to have milder disease, there are cases nationwide of severe illness. In addition, children with mild or no symptoms can cause more serious illness in parents, grandparents, and other adults.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
