Self-care and Risk Minimization
We want to continue to help our patients so please help protect us All! Individuals who are sick or have been potentially exposed to an infectious agent must not keep office appointments as this puts others at risk. As a community, we each have a personal responsibility to protect each other by complying with this rule.
We ask that everyone follow the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for basic protective measures against the new coronavirus:
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
- Regularly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash your hands with soap and water, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Practice good respiratory hygiene. Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of used tissues immediately and appropriately in a bin.
Our staff have taken all precautions so patients are safe in our office.
