HUMPHREYS AND GALLOWAY PERIODONTICS & DENTAL IMPLANTS Policy regarding CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) 03/12/2020

Due to the increasing concerns surrounding the spread of the coronavirus, we are asking that you only bring someone with you to your appointment if it is absolutely necessary that they accompany you.

We understand that this is a very special time for everyone, but our first concern is for your health, the health of your friends/family as well as all our other patients.

ADDITIONALLY

IF YOU HAVE THE FLU OR FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS, SORE THROAT, COUGH, BODY ACHES, HEADACHE, OR VOMITING, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE OFFICE. IF YOU HAVE RECENTLY RETURNED FROM TRAVELS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES, WE ARE REQUESTING THAT YOU RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT. CALL 334-792-7888 TO RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT

As you have likely heard on the news, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Coronaviruses cause respiratory illnesses, ranging from the common cold to pneumonia.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to believe the risk of this COVID-19 to the American public remains low at this time; however, in order to protect you and others, we would like to share the following general information and tips for travelers. To read more on the CDC website, click here.

The virus can spread from person to person. Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

To reduce your risk of any infection, we recommend the same precautions as those for avoiding the common cold and flu:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

If you recently traveled to China, Iran, Japan, Italy or South Korea and have a fever and cough or shortness of breath: Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and symptoms.

  • Tell your health care provider and their staff immediately if you have returned from visiting China, Iran, Japan, Italy or South Korea in the past 2 weeks.
  • After you have been seen by a medical provider, stay home and avoid contact with others until you are well.
  • Avoid travel on public transportation (such as bus, train, subway, metro, or airplane).
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

If you are planning any travel outside of the US, visit the CDC’s Travelers’ Health webpage for the latest travel and health notices.
