• We continue NOT to see  people with respiratory or infectious symptoms in the office - we are offering telemedicine visits and referring to Porter for Covid testing as needed. 

 

  • Here are some key points with regard to our safe reopening protocol. We will: 

  1.  space out visits so that ideally only one patient is in the office at a time.

  2.  screen everyone for Covid symptoms prior to their appointment. Anyone with respiratory symptoms (cough, congestion, shortness of breath, fever - will NOT be seen in the office -but will be seen by TELEHEALTH.)

  3. check temperatures on everyone.

  4. Require masks for all who enter. We have hand sanitizer in each room. We as providers are also wearing masks and washing our hands before and after seeing each patient.

  5.  have a strict disinfecting plan for cleaning rooms in between patients.

  6.  will not use the waiting room and bathroom use will be available for emergencies only 

  7. will have patients enter via two different doors, to avoid contact with others and keep 6 ft apart 

 

  • Due to the very small nature of our practice, we do not have N95 masks or isolation rooms for high risk Covid patients and thus are not seeing them in the office.

 

  • RE COVID TESTING:  we can only order Covid testing on symptomatic patients or those with direct exposure.  If you need asymptomatic testing, go to the Department of Health website to sign up for a pop up test site.  LINK HERE: ​ https://humanresources.vermont.gov/popups

 

  • Vermonters have been doing a great job and staying home and decreasing the spread of the virus.  Let’s keep it up. Practice caution and please wear a mask. 

 

 

We realize many people have been under stress due to the pandemic, so please do not hesitate to reach out to discuss medical or psychological concerns. See our "Staying Healthy During Covid" page  for more information. 

We look forward to working with you as we all adjust to a new normal with Covid 19 in our lives. 

We are in this together.

 

Stay well, stay safe - 

 

From your team at GMPC,
