Revised Covid-19 Practice Information (February 2022)

Revised Practice Updates
Genesee-Transit Pediatrics continues its commitment to protecting patients, visitors, and staff by requiring face masking for all persons 2 years of age and older (regardless of vaccine status) in all areas of the office.

The waiting room is open, but please call the office (ext. #4) from your car to let us know when you have arrived. Staff wil let you know when you may enter.

Entry is limited to essential guests.

Sick patients are directed to enter through the side door.

Advance and non-urgent appointments are rescheduled if Covid-19 symptoms are present among the patient or the accompanying adult.

100% of staff are vaccinated against Covid-19.
General Covid-19 Information
Refer to the Erie County DOH website for information about the latest isolation/quarantine recommendations.
https://www2.erie.gov/health/index.php?q=coronavirus

Refer to the Erie County DOH website to report a positive at-home test and to obtain/complete the Affirmation Documents (isolation or quarantine) as needed by your child's school or your employer for justification of absence.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and all our doctors recommend Covid-19 vaccinations for all age eligible children. You may call us to book an appointment for your child's vaccine.

Do not send your child to daycare, camp, team sports nor school when ill.

Proof of a negative test will be required if you need us to write a note for your child to return to activities.

There are no legitimate medical reasons for a mask exemption. Please do not request one.
