As hopefully many of you are aware, the CDC recommended on Friday 4/3/2020 that everyone going outside of the home wear a face covering if they will be within 6 feet of another person. Accordingly, if you come to our office please wear a homemade mask or some type of face and nose covering. If you are going to the grocery store, the hardware store or any other essential business please wear your face covering. Please continue to keep the physical distance of 6-8 feet or more between yourself and others when possible in those establishments. All our employees will continue to wear masks and eye protection for their and your safety.
We are not able to provide surgical masks to patients that are not sick. Please wear your homemade mask or face covering to our office if you are coming to get blood drawn or to see a provider in the clinic. The CDC reviews several options on how to make homemade masks. This link is given here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html.
Please remember to wash the mask daily after use and to wear gloves that can be thrown away or washed after your outing. Cloth face masks should not be placed on children under the age of 2.
Thank you for helping keep each other safe and healthy.
