With the risk of spreading the SARS-CoV-2 virus, even when kids don’t have symptoms, in-office visits aren’t always possible and certainly aren’t always safe anymore.
Of course, newborns, infants, and toddlers still need to be seen for essential preventative care in the office, especially when they need vaccines. As do some other kids in special situations.
“Be flexible. Consider modifying your clinical schedule and physical space to minimize risk. Increase capacity to deliver telehealth when possible.”Sally Goza, MD, FAAP President, American Academy of Pediatrics
Still, we are going to have to change how we provide that care until the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
