Coronavirus Safety Precautions
We are all very aware of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, and the measures being taken around the world to keep people safe. In order to keep you and our staff safe while maintaining our excellent standard of service through this quarantine period, we’ve made the following adjustments to our policies:
We will remain open for business for the time being, however, we are waiving all cancellation fees. We don’t want you to feel financially pressured to come to an appointment if you think you may be infected or if you are worried about infection. If you may have been exposed or feel ill, please cancel your appointment. If you have a cough, fever or have been in contact with anyone with known or possible COVID-19, please call our dermatology clinic in Boulder and reschedule.
We are taking extra steps with our office cleaning processes to ensure our facilities are sanitized even more regularly and thoroughly than usual.
We are also limiting the number of people allowed in our dermatology clinic to only patients with scheduled appointments. We ask that you arrive alone for your appointment, unless you physically need a caretaker to be present with you.
We are taking steps to be able to offer telemedicine services. We will update this site with more information when those services become available.
Coronavirus Safety Tips
We hope that you and your family are in good health during this time of crisis, or that you have access to healthcare if someone you know has become infected. We’ll do our best to ensure you can always enjoy safe, dependable service at our dermatology clinic, no matter how long this pandemic lasts. Here are some tips for maintaining health and safety at home, too:
- Stay home as much as possible, and avoid gatherings of more than 10 people
- If you must be out in public during this time, practice ‘social distancing’ by leaving roughly six feet of distance between you and other people
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after being out in a public area, coughing or sneezing, and before consuming food or drink
- Avoid touching your face, eyes, and mouth with dirty hands
- Isolate yourself from others if you feel coronavirus symptoms, or seek medical care if you can
- Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces, including doorknobs and countertops, on a daily basis
- Shortness of breath
- Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure
