COVID-19 Concerns & Precautions from Dr. Allan Kurtz
By: California Center of Longevity & Functional Medicine on March 17, 2020
Dear Patients, Colleagues, and Friends,
As the world is navigating how best to deal with the spread of Coronavirus, the health and safety of our patients and office team continues to be our primary concern. We are continually monitoring the situation and want to share information to help you understand what we do to protect your health, the health of your family and those around you.
As patient appointments are now being made and/or confirmed, we will solicit information about the well-being of the patient and recent travel. Starting this week, we will be checking each patient’s temperature prior to treatment. If it is determined that a patient has a fever or an exposure to someone with Covid-19, they will be placed in an isolation room away from other patients.
In our office we have continued our usual Standard Precautions enhanced reception area cleaning and disinfecting. These practices are designed to both protect our patients, our Medical Healthcare Personnel and prevent the spread of the virus. These precautions include:
Our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by the virus.
In Good Health,
Dr. Allan Kurtz
