*Things to Know Before You Visit:
For the safety of our patients and staff, it is mandatory for all patients and visitors to wear a facial covering. 

Although it wasn't clear how effective masks would be early on, the data is now very clear.  They do make a big difference.  We recommend facial coverings at all times when in public.

Please only come by yourself for your care if appropriate and if at all possible.

 - If bringing your child for care, please leave siblings at home if at all possible.



*Thoughts from Dr. Hubbard on Returning to School

Schools are deciding policies for communities.  Families need to decide what is best for their individual situations.  The recommendations provided here are only a guide.  As always during this pandemic, policies and decisions may need to change based on new information, vaccine availability, or local community spread of the virus.

For now, I recommend most families strongly consider sending their students physically back to school for the upcoming school year.  The majority of students will do far better in the classroom when it comes to learning and developing skills to maximize their potential.  Remaining online for educational purposes long-term may work for some individuals, but these students would be the exception.  There is a risk of students falling behind, and frankly will likely still have various exposures to others in the community or from family members at home.  The American Academy of Pediatrics also recommends every effort be made to return students to the classroom this fall. 

I do recommend precautions be followed such as wearing masks and frequently washing hands, and of course following local school policies as well as your personal physician's recommendations.  The data on facial coverings is very clear; they can make a huge difference.  If your child or student is able to wear a facial covering, please encourage them to do so. We recommend each student who has asthma have an asthma action plan in place and maintain control of their asthma.  This is no different than at any other time.  The risk for complications or death from the coronavirus to students is overall exceedingly low, but obviously not zero.

The critical action is for people at risk to redouble their efforts to maintain physical distancing.  I would also encourage students to respect the need and importance to protect those at higher risk, such as their teachers, administrators, assistants, etc, as well as those they come in contact with in their neighborhoods and communities.  Please take a moment to explain to your students that even though they aren't at much risk, they can make a big difference by following guidelines when they are around others.

I am definitely sending my three children back to the classroom in the fall, and there is nothing I value more in this world than them.  When cases of COVID-19 do eventually occur in their school, I still plan on sending them back each and every day, unless we are required to keep them home due to school policy.  Obviously, if any student has symptoms, they need to be kept home. 

My family however does not have anyone at higher risk.  Individual families will ultimately need to decide what works best for their given situation.  No one obviously knows all of the details and circumstances of your family better than you.  If a family member at home has higher risks, then your situation may lead you to keep your children home.

*We are following current guidelines - We ARE OPEN and seeing NON-SICK patients, at least for now. ALWAYS check our website for updates on any closings, as this will have the most up to date information. If you are sick and you are an established patient, we are offering Telehealth appointments; please call the office.

We as a practice continue to do the same as we always have; washing our hands, using hand sanitizers, disinfecting areas, etc. 

 

We are however using stepped up protocols to reduce risks.

         - When coming for an injection or infusion, practice social distancing in the waiting room.  We have hand sanitizer in every office at check in.

 
          - Staff will be wearing a mask when directly interacting with you in close proximity such as when you are given injections, having your arms checked, being brought back to an exam room, etc.

 

          
We remain open in an attempt to keep our patients as healthy as possible.  Our goal is to reduce risks of going to the ER or an urgent care.  Our goal is to continue to minimize the need for medications such as oral steroids that might suppress your immunity.  By maximizing asthma, allergy, and sinus health, we hope to reduce risks of complications from infections, including Covid-19.
