WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE BEEN INFECTED WITH COVID 19?
We don't have and don't anticipate receiving any coronavirus test kits.
If you have mild respiratory symptoms with low-grade fever (under 101), please stay home. As we are unable to test or treat people with COVID 19 infection, we are discouraging those who may have the virus from coming to the office and exposing other patients and staff.
As of now, there are very few testing facilities in the community, but that situation is changing rapidly. Check with us if you think testing might be appropriate (under current guidelines, you are most likely to be eligible if you have been exposed to a person with known COVID infection or have recently returned from a country of high risk).
If you develop a high fever with cough and/or shortness of breath, we will direct you to an emergency department.
IS IT SAFE TO COME IN FOR ROUTINE MEDICAL PROBLEMS?
We intend to remain open for patients who have unrelated medical conditions or are scheduled for check-ups. While we strive to maintain strict hygiene under normal circumstances, we have enhanced our procedures for cleaning exam room areas. Please note that we will ask you to use hand sanitizer when you arrive. We have removed all magazines from the exam rooms so please bring your own reading material. We also ask that you schedule an appointment for any visit to the office even for blood and urine testing. We want to ensure that our waiting room is not crowded and will try to have you wait in a private exam room if there is any delay in being seen. If you need assistance, please limit this to one additional person. Try not to sit next to anyone in the waiting room. If you cough or sneeze, be sure to cover your face with a tissue and then wash your hands, or if you do not have a tissue, cover your face with part of your arm opposite from the elbow rather than using your hand. If you are being seen for any respiratory symptoms, we will ask that you immediately put on a protective mask when you arrive at the office.
WHAT PREVENTATIVE MEASURES SHOULD YOU TAKE?
As you have no doubt read in other sources, the most important behavior to curtail the spread of the virus is social isolation. Avoid gatherings of more than a few people. It's family time! If you have the option of working from home, please do. When possible, avoid public transportation. Door knobs and sink handles are germ sites. Restaurants are danger zones. Do not travel unless it is very important. DO NOT SHAKE HANDS!!
Wash your hands! If no sink is available, use hand sanitizer.
If you are over 65 and have not received your two pneumonia vaccines, you should consider completing these vaccines as soon as you can. While Prevnar and Pneumovax will not protect you against COVID 19, they may prevent bacterial pneumonia that can make the infection worse.
We will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly and update this site as we have more information.
Please stay safe.
