Everyday Preventive Measures
It is critical that we all take these everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
Stay home when you feel sick.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and wash your hands before and after doing so.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your
upper sleeve/elbow, not your hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Do not share personal items such as cups, water bottles, eating utensils, etc.
Avoid shaking hands.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and
after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
And as always do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns.
I know that all of you are worried about the Coronavirus situation. We have initiated a new protocol. All well visits/ routine follow-
ups will be scheduled for the morning if at all possible, and all sick visits will be scheduled in the afternoon. Also, we will be having
all patients wait in their car to be called back once they are checked in. Thank you for you patience and understanding.
