An Important Message from Building Blocks Pediatrics regarding COVID-19:
We would like to reassure all of our families that we are taking all necessary action to do our part to prevent the spread of this virus. Building Blocks Pediatrics is alert and vigilant. We are closely monitoring Coronavirus reports from the CDC and have taken increased measures to keep our clinics sanitized and disinfected. This includes but is not limited to:
* All patients will have their temperature checked before the start of therapy. If the temperature is 100.4° F (38° C) or above, the patient will be sent home and must remain fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication). In the event the patient has been exposed to covid or is covid positive, please refer to the CDC guidelines and/or your pediatricians’ recommendation for quarantine/isolation.
*If a parent must accompany their child into a session, they will be required to have their temperature checked, wash/sanitize hands, and wear a face covering.
*Our therapists provide one-on-one therapy, which helps to allow for social distancing.
*Our waiting rooms will remain closed. This helps limit the number of people coming into the clinic. Therapists will meet families outside of the front door or at their car to pick up and drop children. Parents may elect to wait in their car or run errands while their child is having therapy.
*We will continue to offer the valuable resource of teletherapy (when appropriate). We believe in maintaining progress through continuity of services
We understand that families are concerned about the health and safety of our children and we recommend that everyone take proper precautions to maintain the health and well-being of their families. It is important to understand the potential risk of this virus and to take proper precautions, however it is equally important not to unnecessarily limit life participation of those who are not immediately at risk. Therefore, unless you are notified otherwise, Building Blocks Pediatrics will remain open regular hours. We want our children to be able to continue to receive their therapy and keep their schedules as close to normal for them as possible to avoid regression in their abilities.
Our top priority remains keeping our patients and employees healthy and safe. We encourage our families to stay vigilant and monitor reputable sources such as the CDC, Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and World Health Organization (WHO).
