We are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, especially the recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and California Department of Health. Our goal is to provide optimal care in this rapidly evolving situation while maintaining orderly operations and calm.
Updated 3/16/2020: To promote social distancing we are asking our patients to come alone to routine monitoring visits. Patients who need a consultation are encouraged to do so via phone or video conference rather than in person. We are also implementing a separation of staff members and encouraging non-clinical staff to work remotely.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a new type of coronavirus with an incubation period of up to 14 days.
The most common symptoms are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. The virus spreads mostly through direct person-to-person contact but can also survive on surfaces.
The populations at the highest risk of developing severe disease are older adults and people who have serious chronic medical illnesses.
Young, healthy women are at a lower risk of developing severe disease. There is no evidence that pregnant women are at increased risk. It is also unknown whether the virus can be transmitted in utero from the mother to the child.
There is no data to suggest that undergoing fertility treatment increases your risk of contracting the virus beyond entering a public space.
Prevention and Recommendations for Patients:
If you have a cough, fever, shortness of breath, have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 infection, or have recently traveled to China, Iran, Europe or South Korea, please stay home, call your primary care physician and our office.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use a hand-sanitizer
Avoid touching your face and shaking hands.
Clean frequently touched surfaces with disinfectant.
Keep a distance of greater than 6 feet with other people in public places.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or bent elbow when coughing or sneezing. Wearing a facemask is only advised for those who are sick.
