Coronavirus (COVID-19): Patient and Employee Safety
A well-constructed infection control preparedness plan for COVID-19 has been implemented in our office. We have always practiced safety and infection control and, as Federal, State and Local guidelines change, we change.
Dr. Stefanie Schultis and Katy Jone’s offices are open and we are accepting new patients. You can be assured that our administrative and medical staff are following all precautions and guidelines and that we are here to take care of your needs. We all hope this situation will not last more than a few weeks.
It is important that you feel confident about the care you receive and limit exposure to the possibility of infection.
You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
Practice social distancing
Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean

COVID-19 poses a significant risk to our patients and staff until there is effective vaccination of the public. Infection control measures are in place for the protection of you, other patients, and our staff as part of our commitment to your health, safety, and well-being.
Nevertheless, in-facility (office / clinic / face-to-face) medical treatment presents an unavoidable risk of exposure to COVID-19 that must be minimized to the extent possible by social distancing (when possible), wearing masks, frequent hand washing, and any other available safety measures.
