Dear Point Loma Pediatrics family,
We are taking coronavirus very seriously. Many people are postponing appointments. Vaccination rates are down 80% nationwide and there is significant concern that vaccine preventable diseases such as measles or polio could make a resurgence. Please see our current plan below, we are following county and state guidelines which still recommend well child exams:
We are doing our best to balance the changing recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, The Centers for Disease Control, and the State of California. We are not able to post general Covid-19 updates and recommendations as these change daily. Please refer to the CDC for the most up to date guidance. Also, The County of San Diego posts known daily cases on this site https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/hhsa/programs/phs/community_epidemiology/dc/2019-nCoV/status.html
We have had one positive Covid patient as of 5/28/20. This was an asymptomatic college-aged patient who had returned from Spain and was seen in the parking lot in full protective equipment. We have had 5-10 other children where Covid was suspected, but the patients tested negative.
Thank you for your consideration and stay safe!
