A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PEDIATRICIAN:
Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our patients and their families. In an effort to empower you during these times of uncertainty, we are providing some key information.
Children are less likely to develop a severe infection from Covid-19. Even so, if you believe you or your child have been exposed, please call your doctor’s office and we will provide next steps. If there is a medical emergency and you need to visit the ER due to a suspected exposure, it is important to notify the hospital of your arrival before entering the building. Please call the hospital and alert them that you are on the way.
When you should see us:
- Any fever (>100.4F) in an infant less than 2 months old
- Fever (>100.4F) for more than 5 days in patients of any age
- Respiratory distress including barking cough, increased effort to breath
- Signs of dehydration (no tears when crying, dark yellow or strong-smelling urine)
- Sore throat, but no other signs of a cold
- Ear pain for more than 2 days in children older than 2 years, or with fever in those under 2
We understand that two years of pandemic life has also taken a toll on mental and emotional wellness. Our organization includes a behavioral health specialist, and we encourage you to speak with your pediatrician about any concerns and/or appointment needs.
As always, call us if you have any questions.
