COVID-19 Updates

With the number of cases going up in our area it is important to stay up to date with what to do if/when your child comes into contact with a know COVID person.

Our office is following the CDC guidelines for suspected COVID contacts which are to be considered exposed a person must have:

  • Contacted someone with a positive nasal swab PCR or antigen test, NOT an antibody test AND
  • Contacted that person intimately (hug/kiss) or been in close proximity (<6 feet) for >15 minutes AND
  • Contacted that person while infectious; either 2 days before the positive test or symptoms began

If your child has recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19, the CDC currently recommends that you stay home until 14 days after your last exposure, check temperature twice a day and watch for symptoms of COVID-19. If at all possible, stay away from people who are at higher-risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.

If testing is needed, SA Antonio Metro Health has a list of locations for COVID testing. Unfortunately, we do not offer any COVID-19 testing in our office.
