Coronavirus Pandemic Notice
Posted 2/3/2021

Our Practice Updates General Covid-19 Information
The Coronavirus Pandemic safety protocols remain in place.

All persons 2 years and up who enter the office must wear a face mask that covers both the mouth AND the nose.

To maintain proper social distancing within the office, we continue to call you in from your car and to escort you out one family at a time.

Therefore, entering and exiting transitions take longer. Please be patient with us as we do our best to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Only one adult may accompany the patient(s) for the appointment(s) to limit in office capacity.

We continue to separate, by session, appointments for well/non-sick patients from appointments for sick/contagions concerns.

All entrants are screened for Covid-19 symptoms and exposure. (All non-urgent appointments are rescheduled if there is a positive screen.)

Our pandemic hours are the still Monday-Friday 8am-4pm and we continue to have Saturday hours 8am-12pm.

As usual, we are available for advice 24/7.

Telehealth visits are still available.

The office is not handling cash payments within the office space.

We are not doing in-office testing for Covid-19.

We are not yet offering Coronavirus vaccines.

**We are following the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines (12/2020) to conduct in office cardiac screening for all children 5 years and older in order to determine clearance to resume exercise/gym/sports.


Continue to mask, social distance, and wash your hands frequently.

Avoid unnecessary gatherings with persons with whom you do not live.

Do not send your child to daycare, camp, nor school with any symptoms of Covid-19 nor if he has had close contact with someone who has or is under investigation for Covid-19.

Refer to the Erie County Dept. of Health website for a list of Covid testing locations.

If you get tested, isolate as if you are positive and quarantine your family until the results are reported as normal.

If there is a test-proven, positive Covid-19 case in your household refer to the Erie County Health Commissioner mandate (Health Alert Priority #355) for the proper quarantine procedure via this link: www.erie.gov/covid19. Note the quarantine time has been shortened from 14 to 10 days.

If you think your child has the Covid-19 virus he may be treated supportively at home. Regarding suspected Covid-19 illness, call if there is fever of 100.4 or higher longer than 72 hours or if there is shortness of breath, trouble breathing, difficulty keeping down fluids, or an extensive rash.

Presently available vaccines are approved for either 16 or 18 year-olds and up.


Stay safe!
