What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a respiratory virus that belongs to the Coronavirus family, a group of viruses often associated with the common cold. In December of 2019 a novel coronavirus appeared in Wuhan, China. It has since spread throughout China and to other countries around the world, including the United States. The status of COVID-19 continues to evolve. For the most current information please refer to cdc.gov.

It is thought that COVID-19 spreads:

  • Person to person (those in close contact less than 6 feet)
  • Through respiratory droplets (from coughing, sneezing or talking)
  • Inhaling droplets into the mouth or nose into the lungs
  • Possibly by people without symptoms

Here is a great video for kids to watch as your family discusses the outbreak from Brain Pop.

 

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Sore Throat
  • Muscle aches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Repeated shaking with chills

 

When to see your doctor or nurse practitioner?

If your child is in respiratory distress, call 911 or take them to the closest emergency room.

If your child has a fever and/or cough, please use the CHOA ASSESSMENT TOOL to guide you in managing your child.  As always, our triage staff and providers are here to answer your questions or concerns @ 770-751-0800.

 

How do we prevent from getting COVID-19?

1. COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE WHEN YOU COUGH OR SNEEZE

2. MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING, AT LEAST 6 FEET

3. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE

4. STAY HOME 

5. WASH YOUR HANDS Here is a great video to show your kids on proper hand washing.

 

What is RPC doing specifically to prevent spread?

1. We have dedicated our Alpharetta office to well and non infectious sick visits; i.e.. injuries, rashes, etc.

2. At our Crabapple and Cumming locations we are doing well visits in the mornings and sick visits in the afternoons

3. We are cleaning each room between visits.

4. Our phone triage staff are screening each call extensively.  We follow CDC guidelines to provide guidance, instructions, and recommendations for visits.

5. We are scheduling virtual office visits for a number of consults and other concerns.

6. We are spacing out scheduled in-office appointments to maintain proper social distancing.

 

Why should you continue to come to the office for well visits?

During the Covid-19 outbreak, it is important that children stay up-to-date on vaccinations in order to protect them from other serious infections or outbreaks. We recommend scheduling well visits for children up to two years old, 4/5 years old and 11/12 years old. We also recommend that new patients get a well visit to make sure their vaccine status is current. Call our office today to make sure your child is up to date on vaccines. 

 

How can you help us help you?

1.Give as much information as possible to our triage staff to help them assign you the right appointment for your child’s needs.

2. Everyone 2 years and older (and parent) should wear a mask for your appointment.

3. Please limit one parent in the office with your child for their appointment.
