COVID-19 Information for Parents
Dear Northwest Pediatrics Families,
We hope you are in good health and good spirits after more than a month of stay-at-home orders and distance learning with your kids.
We want to let you know that while our operations have changed at different times throughout this pandemic, we are still here and available to provide both well care and sick visits for your children.
We are currently taking meticulous safety precautions and extra cleaning measures, including seeing only well patients in the offices in the morning, doing some sick visits by telemedicine, and even some outside in our special tent when appropriate! Please be aware that per Washington University policy, all adults and kids over age two must wear a mask from home (or a bandana, scarf, or similar face covering) to enter our facility. Please do NOT place a face covering on any children under age two. You will see all our staff wearing masks and other protective equipment to protect everyone.
Please call any of our three offices to speak with a nurse to schedule your child’s well visit or discuss the most appropriate type of appointment if they are sick.
Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association have recently recommended that kids continue to see their pediatricians for routine well visits and receive all vaccinations on schedule so that we keep everyone safe from vaccine-preventable diseases and keep track of growth, development, safety, and emotional health issues.
