It was announced today that the governor has decided to lift mandatory mask requirements and allow businesses to reopen to full capacity. I would like you to know that we hold the health of you and your family in the highest regard and are committed to providing a safe medical environment. To that end, masks for patients over age 2 and social distancing will continue to be required of all patients who are seen in our office. Other procedures such as limiting the number of patients in waiting areas and in treatment areas, as well as covid risk screening, will also remain in effect until further notice. I encourage all high risk patients to seek vaccination as early as possible as the prevalence of COVID is likely to increase in the next 3-4 weeks as people gather in greater numbers, many without masks.
In the last year, we have learned how to stay safe. Covid, though decreased, is still in our community. Please continue to mask up in crowds, practice social distancing, wash hands frequently, and if you don’t feel well or have contact with a person who has Covid, get tested and self quarantine until you have your results.
Please do not hesitate to contact our office for any health related concerns.
Dr. Touchstone and staff
