Coronavirus

We have all been inundated with news regarding the rapidily evolving Coronavirus outbreak.  This has raised many questions and some concern.  Below is some information to let you know what we at Golden Gate Pediatrics are doing during this time, as well as some resources to help provide you with some clarity.

 

We are doing online virtual visits in an effort to keep with the best practices of social distancing during this time.

 

We are not able to test for Coronavirus in-office, but if appropriate, we can help coordinate.

 

It is now as important as ever to make sure we are all practicing our best hygiene habits such as frequent hand washing, avoiding touching your face/mouth and covering your coughs.

 

It is also important that everyone has received a flu vaccine for this current flu season.  If you have not, please call our office to schedule an appointment for your flu vaccine as we still have plenty of vaccine available.

 

We have internal policies and procedures in place for if one of our patients does present with the Coronavirus.  We are doing all well visits in the morning and doing non-respiratory urgent care visits in the afternoon.  We currently cannot see any patients with a fever or a cough in our office at this time.  Any patients with illnesses are first being evaluated via a virtual online visit with the Doctor.

 

Donations:  Many healthcare facilities are in need of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  Click here if you may be able to help our Clinical Affiliate Partner, UCSF.
