Corona Virus prevention

To our valued patients, staff, and families

As we are all aware of the increased impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the safety and well being of our patients and employees is our most important concern. We feel it is important to give you our recommendations to follow and share with you the extra steps we are taking to ensure your safety.

  1. Our office already adheres to strict standard hygiene and universal infectious disease precaution protocols. We will continue following these rules, but we will also increase the frequency with which we disinfect and clean our facility including the frequently touched surfaces. We will take the effort to frequently sanitize the entire office including doorknobs/handles, sinks, tables and countertops.
  2. We are closely and diligently monitoring updates from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), WHO, ADA, and Public Health Agencies relating to Covid-19.
  3. During this period our office hours will continue as usual.

However we need you to assist us in this effort and we ask you:

  1. We have removed our coffee station, magazines, and closed the Kids Zone area with iPads to help avoid the spread of the virus.

We thank you for your consideration and cooperation in keeping our office a healthy workplace; and we are confident that together as a community we will prevail safely.

Sincerely,

Drs. Alhussain  & Alhussain

Recommendations to Prevent Illness (CDC Website)

 

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

 

Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness

 

Take steps to protect yourself:

 

1) Clean your hands often

2) Avoid close contact

 

Take steps to protect others

 

 

To disinfect:
Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work. Use disinfectants appropriate for the surface.

Options include:

Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
