TO OUR  PATIENTS

January 6, 2022

The Omicron Variant 

We continue to learn more each day about this variant. We do know that it much more contagious than the Delta Variant. In the last week, we have seen a 98% increase in COVID-19 positive cases.  Because we are seeing such high transmission in the community, we will be asking that any patient with respiratory symptoms requesting a visit be seen VIRTUALLY, regardless of vaccine status or testing results.  This will be in place for the next two weeks and then we will re-evaluate our protocol. 


Again, the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to get vaccinated. People who have not been vaccinated are at the highest risk for serious illness.  We understand that testing has been very difficult to obtain.  Please follow this link to look for available testing sites in MA. 


For full CDC guidance during the pandemic, please follow this link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/20

 We will continue to ask patients to mask at all times when at our offices. Employees will continue to do so as well. This is for the health and safety of everyone in our care.  Furthermore, we will continue to screen all patients and visitors before entering our office.  Seating in our waiting rooms will remain limited and socially distant.  We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you soon.

STAYING IN THE KNOW

Responding to the Recent Coronavirus Outbreak

We have been closely monitoring the developments regarding Coronavirus in and around our community.  We are closely following the Massachusetts Department of Health as well as CDC guidelines.

The symptoms of coronavirus include fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, and/or conjunctivitis occurring 2-14 days after exposure to an infected person.  Furthermore, COVID-19 individuals may appear asymptomatic.  

Please call our office if you develop symptoms and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you have recently traveled.

Please do not come to the office or go to an Urgent Care Unit without calling first.  If you are sick, please stay home from work and school. 

Most cases of fever and cough are not due to Coronavirus. Your risk for developing Coronavirus is low if you have not come into contact with someone who has the infection and have not traveled to areas where the virus is widespread. Information on areas where the risk for infection is higher is available at CDC.gov or Mass.gov.

There are important things that you can do to prevent the spread of viruses. 

The Department of Health recommends:

  • Get your flu shot, and make sure the people around you do the same. 

  • Wash your hands often throughout the day. Use warm water and soap. If soap and water are not available, use at  least 60% alcohol-based hand gel. 

  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow. Flu and coronavirus are spread through coughing or sneezing on other people or into your hands. Cover your coughs and sneezes to prevent others from getting sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way. 

  • Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious foods. 

  • Keep surfaces (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, and toys for children) clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant.

  • Stay home if you are ill.  Don't return to work until you have not had a fever without taking medications for at least 24 hours.

  • Face masks are needed for people who are coughing or sick. For individuals 2 years and older, it is now recommended to wear a face mask in public to prevent yourself from getting an infection and to protect others from getting an infection

If you have questions about the virus, the Center for Disease Control has information at CDC.gov  or at Mass.gov
