This page will be updated with current COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccination guidelines, as well as clinic policies related to COVID-19.
UPDATED CLINIC MASK POLICY:
Per CDC recommendations, we no longer require patients or staff to wear masks in clinic. We strongly recommend wearing a mask if you or your child are ill, out of consideration for others. If you would feel more comfortable with our staff masking, please ask and we will be happy to oblige!
We offer Cepheid Rapid PCR COVID-19 testing with ill visits. Results are available same day, usually within an hour. We do not offer lab only visits for testing at this time. Over the counter COVID-19 antigen tests are widely available and appropriate for the majority of cases.
ILL VISITS- COVID EXPOSURE:
If you or your child have a known COVID exposure, please inform our staff prior to your appointment. You may be asked to wait in your car and enter through our delivery door in order to prevent exposures to other patients and families in our waiting room.
CURRENT COVID-19 ISOLATION GUIDELINES:
If you are positive for COVID-19 and symptomatic, it is advised to isolate at home. Isolation guidelines frequently change, so we recommend checking the latest guidelines on the CDC’s page HERE
Paxlovid is an antiviral drug for COVID-19 that is currently approved for ages 12+ who are at high risk for developing severe COVID-19. We currently follow FDA/CDC guidance and only recommend this for high risk patients. If you have a question about if paxlovid is right for your adolescent or young adult, please portal message your provider.
We currently offer telehealth appointments for mental health concerns ONLY.
