During this pandemic, our top priority at Avon Pediatrics is keeping your family safe. We have developed enhanced safety measures to keep your child and family safe at our office. We employ strict cleaning and disinfecting practices in our office. Each exam room is cleaned thoroughly between every patient. We are equipped with all the proper safety gear. Our clinical staff wears masks and gloves during your entire visit. All Avon Pediatrics staff and medical providers have been vaccinated against COVID-19. We require all patients over 2 years of age, family members and visitors to mask in our office in accordance with the CT Department of Health guidelines for medical offices. We also verbally screen all potential patients and families for COVID-19 risk factors prior to giving office appointments.
We want to share some excellent resources to support you. Below, please find the link to our care partner, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (see Resources for Families) , for many resources including how to help your child cope with the challenges of COVID-19 along with other useful articles. The CDC link and the American Academy of Pediatrics’ parenting website (healthychildren.org) provide more pediatric information on COVID-19.
