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 following the same plan as the Children’s Hospital and receiving updates 3 times weekly. We are seeing a small number (2-3) cases of Covid each week at this time as of 8/3/2020. We are screening staff routinely. 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
Thank you for your consideration and stay safe!
