As you know by now, the Coronavirus disease, otherwise known as COVID-19, has become a rapidly evolving concern for people across this country and abroad. Locally, here in Texas, the virus continues to spread throughout our communities.
We want to assure you that Family Foot & Ankle Centers is taking precautionary measures to help maintain the safety and cleanliness of our offices. To best help prevent the spread of this disease, we urge you to please contact our office prior to any appointments if you believe you are exhibiting symptoms.
Common symptoms of this virus may include fever, cough, headache, sore throat and shortness of breath. This precautionary step is especially important for elderly, diabetic, and pediatric patients, as they seem to be more susceptible to the disease.
Additionally, we advise that you regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home if you believe you’re getting ill, covering your coughs and sneezes, and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces may also help in the prevention of the Coronavirus.
Our practice is dedicated to providing a safe, and healthy space for our patients and employees, which is why we must all work together as we fight this virus. Please feel free to contact our office, and we wish you a safe and healthy remainder to 2020.
