Dear patients,

As you may know by now, the Coronavirus disease, otherwise known as COVID-19, has become a rapidly evolving concern for people across this country and abroad.

We want to assure you that our practice is taking precautionary measures to help maintain the safety and cleanliness of our office. To best help prevent the spread of this disease, we urge you to please contact our office prior to any appointments if you believe you are exhibiting symptoms.

We ask our patients to practice safe and responsible masking behavior. Please make sure that your mask covers your nose and mouth, while still allowing for breathing without restriction. Your mask should be secured with ties or earloops and should fit snugly but comfortably on the sides of your face. Masks with multiple layers will provide the best protection. Handle your mask only by the ear loops, and avoid touching the front of your mask. Change your mask after each use or as soon as it becomes soiled. If wearing a fabric or reusable mask, wash the mask after each use. Wash or sanitize your hands immediately after each use.

Common symptoms of this virus may include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. This precautionary step is especially important for elderly, diabetic, and pediatric patients, as they seem to be more susceptible to the disease.

Additionally, we advise that you regularly wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home if you believe you’re getting ill, covering your coughs and sneezes, and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces may also help in the prevention of the Coronavirus.

Our practice is dedicated to providing a safe, and healthy space for our patients, which is why we must all work together as we learn more about this disease. Please feel free to contact our office, and we wish you well.
