Mask Update: Masks No Longer Required

As always, one of our main goals at Healthy Kids Pediatrics is to offer our patients and their families as well as our staff a positive, safe, and comfortable experience when coming to the office.

In September, the CDC announced its recommendation that masks are no longer required in medical settings. We chose to take additional time to carefully monitor the conditions and we kept our finger on the pulse of our families and staff.

Since our local community levels of COVID infection are no longer high and we have an effective vaccine preventing serious illness and death available to all people six months and older, we decided that masks will no longer be required when visiting our office.

We encourage everyone to continue to use common sense and as a precautionary measure and courtesy to others, if you or your child are not feeling well please consider masking. There may also be times, on a case by case basis, that our team may choose to wear a mask during visits.

In addition, if any patient or family member still feels more comfortable wearing a mask as a personal preference please feel free to do so.

Should conditions in our community change we will immediately reevaluate our policy and make the necessary adjustments to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible, but as of right now masks are no longer required in our office.

If you have any questions please contact us and we thank you for helping Healthy Kids Pediatrics continue to deliver the highest quality healthcare to your children!
