CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION FOR OUR PATIENTS


We care about you and want you to be healthy and safe while we do all we can to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. 

For medical care, including if you have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or have been around someone who has been diagnosed with coronavirus or influenza, please stay home and call us first at 585-545-7200 for additional guidance. 

To prevent the spread of infection, please do not come to our Clinic before talking with a member of our care team. When you call us, our patient care team will ask you some questions and determine whether you should come to our office, stay home, or participate in a telehealth video visit on your smartphone, tablet, or computer with one of our care providers. Our care providers are seeing more patients through telehealth video visits at home to minimize the risk of exposure. If you will participate in a telehealth visit at home, you will receive an email link to start your appointment on-screen with a provider. It's easy and confidential, in compliance with HIPAA requirements. You will receive the same high-quality care medical care you've come to expect!

What is the coronavirus?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.

Who is at risk?

People who are close contacts of someone known to have the coronavirus are at a higher risk for infection. Other people at a higher risk for infection are those who have recently traveled to an area with an ongoing spread of coronavirus. Learn more on the CDC website.

How is it spread?

The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

How can I protect myself?

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
  • Practice social distancing (avoid large public gatherings and stay approximately six feet away from others  to avoid spreading infection whenever possible)

What are the symptoms of coronavirus?

  • Fever 
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

If you are sick, to keep from spreading respiratory illness to others, you should:

  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

What should I do if I recently traveled from an area with an ongoing spread of coronavirus?

If you have recently traveled from an affected area, and you develop symptoms, please stay home and call your primary care provider.

Is there a vaccine?

There is currently no vaccine to protect against coronavirus. The best way to prevent infection is to take everyday preventive actions, like avoiding close contact with people who are sick and washing your hands often.
