 COVID-19 Update – Surgery Patients 

 

With the new year upon us and vaccination against the Covid-19 virus in progress, we are hopeful that slowly life will return to normal.  We also wanted to give you an COVID-19 update from our practice. At this time our team at PENTA is continuing to follow Covid-19 safety recommendations to continue to provide a safe office environment for our patients and staff. 

The measures implemented will be remain in place.  As such, we will continue temperature checks of all family members who enter for an office appointment.  Please try to limit the office visit to 1 parent/guardian and 1 patient. We will continue to ask if you or your child have symptoms of Covid-19 or has been exposed to anyone who has Covid-19 symptoms. All patient rooms, surfaces, and objects are sanitized between patients.  We are utilizing the waiting room as little as possible to optimize social distancing.  Please notify us if you have had out-of-town travel in the 2 weeks prior to your visit.  Please notify our office before coming to your appointment if you or your child is ill so that we can consider rescheduling your appointment.
