A Statement from The Carter Clinic regarding COVID-19

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Carter Clinic continues to follow both local government and CDC recommendations to ensure the safety of our patients, and employees. 

 

All clinics are now operating on their usual schedule, with the added option of video conferencing for those that do not require an in-person office visit (i.e. urine screening or injections). Please click here for more information on how to set up a video conference appointment. 

 

All in office visits are "No Contact" and masks are required while inside. We ask that if you are not feeling well (with any flu-like or respiratory symptoms) that you schedule a video visit or reschedule your appointment. In all locations screening and cleaning protocols are occurring to help decrease the risk of disease transmission. 

In addition, please follow these CDC recommended steps to protect yourself and your family:
● Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
● Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
● Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
● Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily
● Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

● Wear a mask at all times while indoors and if social distancing is not an option

● Continue to practice social distancing as much as possible 


Individuals at Higher Risk for acquiring COVID-19 include
● Elderly
● Individuals with Heart Disease, Diabetes, Lung Disease, Current or Recent Pregnancy,
Chronic Liver Disease, Compromised Immune System, Intellectual Disability or
Neuro developmental Disorders (spina bifida, seizure disorder etc).

We continue to serve individuals at higher risk by using virtual visits for medication management and therapy services.

 

As always the health and safety of our patients is our utmost concern. Take care of you and your families emotional health. And of course please call the office with any questions or concerns, and be well!
