Like everyone else, we are very happy to see all of the COVID rates decrease in our area and across the country. We continue to monitor the situation and make changes to modify our protocols. Here are our policies beginning the week of Monday, June 14th:
MASKS: Fully Vaccinated persons (staff and clients) now have the option of NOT wearing a mask while in our office. Unvaccinated persons (including those that have previously been infected with COVID) still need to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth in our office. Social distancing rules remain in effect–that is, please stay behind the blue lines in the waiting room and exam rooms.
APPOINTMENTS: Clients have the option of accompanying their pet into our office for appointments. Please call when you arrive and a staff member will direct you to which exam room to enter. If clients do not wish to accompany their pet, then our staff can still continue to arrange curbside service for appointments.
CURBSIDE PICKUP: All medication and food pickups will remain curbside. When you arrive, call into the office and a staff member will bring your products out to your car and also do your check out there.
Please note, that we are still operating on a limited schedule to control the flow of persons into and out of our building. Scheduling continues to be our biggest challenge, but we continue to work hard to provide great care for all of our patients. We do reserve appointments every day for sick patients, but these fill up quickly. If your pet needs to be seen, you need to call us early in the morning. Unfortunately there are times that we cannot fit any more appointments into our schedule and must refer patients to one of the local emergency hospitals.
So, stay safe and healthy, get vaccinated, and hopefully all will be back to “NORMAL” soon.
