Every day we as a medical community are learning more about COVID19. Some information is valid from reputable sources, but some is fear mongering or an attempt to sell a product that has not been tested and shown to work.
We are sharing information daily about COVID19 on our social media and are collecting all of that information here for easy reference.
We want to reassure you that we are doing all that we can to keep our office safe during this time of unknown risks. We are still recommending that you bring your kids in for their routine care. At this point the health department is confident that we can contain spread within our clinics with precautions that we have in place. We cannot postpone vaccines at this critical time. It may allow vaccine preventable diseases to return.
Our main concern is the health and wellbeing of our patients, their families and our staff.
The situation is evolving rapidly and we are making every effort to implement protocols to maximize safety at both of our locations.
You can help your family and the community by staying up to date with the latest information and listening to the experts, such as when they recommend to wash hands or stay home.

To help decrease the spread of COVID19 we recommend:
* Stay home if sick unless you need medical attention. If you think you need to be seen, call first.
* If you have exposure to COVID19, please stay home for 14 days.
* Avoid public places whenever possible. Stay 6 feet away from others (briefly walking by is not high risk).
* Wash hands for 20 seconds and rinse with warm water or use a hand sanitizer frequently.
* Wipe down commonly touched surfaces daily.
* Cough into your elbow or a tissue. Wash your hands if you cough into your hand or tissue.
* Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth without first cleaning your hands. Clean again afterwards.
* Get regular exercise. Go for a walk or ride a bike (weather permitting), throw a dance party in the living room for your family, use online exercise programs at home.
* Call / Skype/ Facetime grandparents and other family members and friends regularly. With everyone practicing social distancing, they'll appreciate it even more than usual.
* Routine helps! Make up a new family routine so kids can know what to expect throughout the day.
* Find new ways to entertain within your home.
