Allergy & Asthma Care of Fairfield County is dedicated to keeping our patients and staff protected as best we can from COVID-19.
- We remain open with somewhat modified hours to provide care for all of our patients, and are back to near normal injection hours (close at 6 PM instead of 7 PM Monday and Tuesday for now.) We have in-office appointments available for all allergy and asthma related issues. Telemedicine visits are still available for those who prefer to avoid in-office visits for now.
- We are sanitizing the waiting room chairs and surfaces frequently throughout the day.
- Please be patient with us as we are sanitizing every exam room from top to bottom between each patient visit. All equipment such as blood pressure cuffs, otoscopes, stethoscopes will be sanitized between patients. This takes time and may cause some delays with rooming patients.
- We are asking patients to CALL their primary health care provider if they have symptoms or feel they meet the criteria for testing for the coronavirus.
- We ask that ALL patients / caretakers entering our office please wear cloth or paper face masks as per CDC guidelines, and use hand sanitizer immediately upon entering the office. Click here for instructions on how to make your own facemask.
- Patients with symptoms suggestive of possible COVID-19 infection should contact their primary care physician and not enter our office. We will be screening patients with appointments for symptoms over the phone prior to entry into our office.
- We have established a protocol to allow allergy injection patients to spend their 30 minute waiting period in their car, understanding that they must wait the 30 minutes in the parking lot and call immediately for any signs of reaction. Waiting in our waiting room is always the safest option, but waiting in your car is allowed during this difficult time.
- We are asking ALL patients to not bring additional family members to appointments. Minors should be accompanied by only one adult. Siblings and other family members will not be permitted into the office unless they are also scheduled to be seen.
- We recommend that all of our patients follow the CDC guidelines for prevention of exposure: CDC guidelines
