Coronavirus Updates

Everyone Needs Love. And a Mask.

Now that Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health have issued an order that requires everyone in the commonwealth to wear masks when staffing or visiting an essential business, we will require that all patients accompany wear cloth masks when when they enter and exit our office.

All of our staff will, of course, continue to wear masks as well — at all times during your visit, including in the exam rooms with you.

 

Prenatal Breastfeeding Class are Now Virtual!

Prenatal Breastfeeding Classes will now be held online via Zoom for the duration of the pandemic.

Just sign up as you normally would on our web site through Eventbrite, and you’ll receive a confirmation email. The day before your class, you’ll receive an email with the Zoom meeting link.

We can’t wait to meet you online!

(And don’t forget: we offer Virtual Breastfeeding Visits as well!)

 

Extra Patient Protections in Place

We’re now asking ALL patients to check in from your cars, and to not sit in the waiting room, to maintain the best possible physical distance between everyone. Families arriving by public transportation will, of course, be allowed to wait in our waiting rooms, with appropriate social distancing in place.

 

Masks in Our Offices

Following updated CDC guidelines that recommend health care personnel wear masks when seeing all sick patients, our Providers and Lactation Consultants will now be wearing masks in the office for all visits, regardless of the symptoms for which they’re being seen.

This is just one more step we’re taking, following the guidance of national experts, to do our best to keep everyone in our office — patients, families, and our Team Members safe and healthy.

 

Another Safety Measure: Temperature Checks

To keep our everyone safe and healthy, we’re also monitoring temperatures for ALL of our team members as they arrive at the office, and then a second time throughout their shift.

Anyone with a temperature over 100 degrees will be sent home for follow-up and evaluation. Just one more extra precautionary measure we’re taking to ensure that our offices are as safe and healthy as possible.
