A Message for Our Families continued

If your child has fever and cough and is not ill-appearing, we may recommend Influenza testing or home care. Currently we are limiting testing for COVID-19 in the office for those patients who have fever, cough and known exposure or underlying medical conditions. We are not offering requested testing, unless it meets these requirements.

Remember that washing hands and being aware of our surroundings is very important to staying healthy. There is no current need to wear masks unless instructed by medical professionals.

The most important aspect is to remain calm and rational. North Seattle Pediatrics physicians will continue to be accessible and provide the level of care you have come to expect. We are still doing well visits.

As things change, we will update our families as quickly as possible.

We are taking all appropriate steps. Please still come see us, we are your best option.

Thank you for trusting us with the care of your families. (3/11/20)
