Commonwealth Vein Center is reaching out to our clients with information on our response to the COVID-19 or Novel Coronavirus.
First, for up-to-date information on the developing situation in Virginia, we are encouraging patients to monitor the situation through the Virginia Department of Health website.
We are also regularly monitoring the national website of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 website.
Commonwealth Vein Center is checking both websites daily and responding with appropriate measures.
Second, we want to remind our clients that we take care of clients with venous insufficiency. We do not treat patients with flu like symptoms.
Our offices are open for scheduled appointments. However, if you have flu like symptoms, please do not come into our office. Similarly, our providers and support teams are not coming into the office if they have flu like symptoms. For the safety of your family, we are requesting that family members not attend an appointment with you.
Each of us should follow these commonsense guidelines:
- If you have flu-like symptoms or have been exposed to someone who has Coronavirus, do not come into our office
- We encourage everyone to avoid handshakes or physical greetings.
- Use personal hand sanitation often and keep homes surfaces clean.
- Avoid large gatherings of people.
- Stay informed.
Here at Commonwealth Vein Center, please know that our practice continues to use state of the art cleaning and sanitation products. We have confirmed with our janitorial company that they are using products which have been found to be effective against viruses such as coronavirus. As an extra measure, we are:
Providing hand sanitizer at all offices.
- Intensifying our cleaning and disinfection protocols.
- Using Clorox wipes on commonly used surfaces.
We wish you wellness. Please contact me if you have questions or concerns at the e-mail address listed below.
