*ALL ENTERING THE OFFICE MUST BE ASYMPTOMATIC- NO FEVER, COUGH, RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS—–NO EXPOSURE TO OTHERS WITH ACTIVE COVID 19 INFECTION (ie FAMILY MEMBER, ROOMMATE OR CLOSE CONTACT CO-WORKER) IN THE PAST 5 DAYS. CDC COVID-19 QUARANTINE GUIDELINES https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html
NO LENGTHY CONVERSATIONS IN THE OFFICE TO MINIMIZE DROPLET SPREAD-PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL
*CHECK-IN WITH FRONT DESK-SIGN NAME IN AND WE WILL CALL YOU UP ONE AT A TIME. NO LONGER CHECKING TEMPERATURES FOR ALLERGY SHOT PATIENTS.
*YOU MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT—-**NO WALK-INS** If you are here for your allergy shot, please show your EPINEPHRINE device and PEAK FLOW reading if you have asthma.
Out of an abundance of caution, we will not be performing peak flow measurements before your shots, due to the possible risk of spreading the virus. Patients with asthma need to perform a peak flow reading at home/car and take a photo or bring the device to show/report their number to the shot nurse prior to their shot. If it is more than 30% below their number then shot will be withheld. We can prescribe a peak flow meter to your pharmacy-just let the shot nurse know you need one.
In order to perform spirometry safely in the office, for those who have received their full Covid vaccination, please let our staff know when you schedule for your appt and bring your Covid vaccine card as proof. For non-vaccinated patients, please schedule a virtual appointment first so Dr Bailey can access prior to scheduling spirometry.
Stay healthy! 😷❤️

They must also complete a COVID questionnaire and have a normal temperature.
