Covid-19 Updates & Testing Resources

Dear Patients, 

 

My office remains open to provide necessary care for patients in the form of office and virtual telemedicine visits. Please read the following carefully:

 

If you've been recently sick, exposed to, or have had any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever (100.4F +)

  • Cough

  • Sore throat

  • Chills

  • Shortness of breath

Please stay home and request a virtual telemedicine appointment with me instead.

 

If you've been exposed to someone with flu or Covid-19 in the last 14 days, please stay home and opt for telemedicine.  

Please only attend office visits if you have been: ​

  • Covid-19/Flu/Rhinovirus symptom-free in the last 14 days

  • Not in recent contact with any sick or positive-tested individuals within the last 14 days

  • If you've had a positive viral test result within 14 days, you must test negative within 1-3 days prior to your visit.

What to Expect In Office

We are taking extra precautions at the office by:

  • Wearing face masks and requiring patients to wear them too. 

  • Staggering patient appointments to create social distancing

  • Sanitizing chairs and equipment between patients

  • Screening for temperature prior to beginning appointment.

  • Hand sanitizer is available as you enter and leave the building. 

Please note, vaccination does not excuse anyone from the above requirements. The virus can still be transmitted despite vaccination status, and we will not make exceptions to the rules.  If this is an issue for you and you're unable to respect the clinic's precautions, then you are welcome to seek care elsewhere.

Covid-19 Testing

Mobile Covid-19 testing is available for all patients. We offer both nasopharyngeal testing for symptomatic patients, and serology antibody testing (Sars-Cov-2 IgM, IgG) to screen for exposure or past infection. 

Please call John Dennard at 916-380-8162 or click here to book your at-home testing.**

**Please direct all questions related to Covid-19 testing to John.

Graciously yours,
