COVID-19 INFORMATION & RESOURCES
UPDATED May 11, 2020: All ONE Pediatrics locations remain open and are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of your family. State regulations now require all patients over age 2 and adult caregivers to wear a mask while inside the practice, (a bandanna or scarf is also sufficient).
As an alternative, all practices are offering telehealth appointments for appropriate conditions. Be sure to follow your pediatrician’s office on Facebook for ongoing updates, including information about telemedicine. Each practice’s web site is also linked at the bottom of this page.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that patients stay as current as possible on well visits, which may include important vaccines. Again, every office is taking safety precautions to keep kids healthy in our care!
If your insurance has changed and your child now has Passport or another Medicaid product and you are looking for a provider, please call our offices. We are happy to work with you to coordinate care.
Kentucky State Resource: Providing updated local data on number of cases, hotline contact information, government guidance, and relevant talking points.

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 COVID19. Even so, if you believe you or your child have been exposed, please call the 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.

- Any fever (>100.4F) in an infant less than 2 months old
