04 Nov, 20 COVID-19

On November 2, a Rainbow Pediatrics staff member tested positive for COVID-19.  We choose to test the staff on a regular basis to maintain safety in the office.  The staff member is well and has absolutely no symptoms.  Rainbow is working closely with the Vermont Department of Health to establish who came in close contact with with the staff member and help families with next steps.  If your family was identified as a close contact, you have been contacted by our office and will be contacted by the Vermont Department of Health.  If you have not been contacted by the Department of Health, you are not considered a close contact, and can continue your day to day activities per Department of Health.  We encourage you to continue to practice physical and social distancing, to practice consistent mask wearing, keep up with good hand washing.

Out of an abundance of caution and to maintain safety for our patients, the office will be closed for in-office visits for the next week while staff quarantines at home. The entire staff will be tested again prior to opening for live visits to ensure everyone's safety.  Our office will still be open for the next week virutally for calls, refills, and telemedicine visits.  We encourage you to call our office or the Vermont Department of Health if you have any questions.  Thank you & stay safe!
