At Worcester Pediatrics, we are dedicated to caring for our young patients and their families. This is especially important to us during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are currently not offering COVID-19 testing in the office. We will schedule a Telehealth appointment with a provider to go over signs/symptoms of the illness and then send your child for a COVID test.
Please note: The majority of those infected by COVID-19 have mild symptoms – this is especially true among children. Meanwhile, in an effort to limit spread of the virus, we are following self-quarantine, containment, and social distancing guidelines as recommended by the CDC and Health Department.
You and your family can stay healthy and help contain the virus by following these precautions:
- Wash your hands frequently
- Do not touch your face
- Avoid large gatherings
- Wear a mask in public
- Maintain social distancing of at least six feet in public
- If you or anyone in your household is sick, please stay at home
- Cough into your elbow
