The federal and state governments have taken judicious (not panicked) measures to protect us all from the spread of the novel coronavirus (also known as COVID-19). We agree with the principles of reducing risk by not attending mass gatherings and practicing social distancing.
We also believe at this time, it is still important for your child to keep up on well visit care, particularly as it pertains to needed immunizations. We feel it would not be wise to postpone these visits, particularly for children under the age of two. This could make them susceptible to other diseases.
At Pediatric Associates, we will be doing everything we can to make sure your child is NOT put at risk by coming to our offices. We have a protocol in place that helps us identify patients who may be at risk for COVID-19, and will isolate these patients. We will rearrange schedules to reduce the chances that well children are not exposed to ill children. We value the safety and health of your family, and the safety and health of our staff.
Please stay tuned to our website and social media pages for more updates as the situation is going to be rapidly changing.
