The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) have been closely monitoring and responding to the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 caused by the novel coronavirus. Based on guidelines set by the CDC and the DPH, the following protocols will be implemented in our office effective immediately.
Patients who believe they are showing signs of infection, or who live with someone with symptoms, will be asked to reschedule their appointments and stay home. This is especially true if you have fever, cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing. Call your physician’s office before going in for an appointment to minimize exposure risk to those in your community.
Help us prevent the spread of viruses through good hand hygiene, avoid touching your face and placing fingers in your mouths and please understand our team will refrain from handshakes.
Hand sanitizer will be offered to all patients at the end of your appointment and is available throughout the office.
Inform us if you have traveled out of the country recently and reschedule your appointment to ensure you are symptom free if you have traveled to a high-risk location within the last 14 days including China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, or Vietnam.
We will continue to practice strict universal infection control protocols in our office, as we always have, for your safety. Your health and well-being, as well as that of our team, are our primary concern and we thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Thank you for trusting us to be part of your healthcare team!
