As we continue to adapt to the changing nature of Covid-19, our office routinely monitors the Community Level of Covid-19 as part of CDC public indoor guidance/safety protocols. Currently, our community level is LOW, which means masks are welcome but not required in our office. If you or your child are at severe risk for illness from Covid-19, we encourage you to wear a mask in all public indoor areas, per CDC guidelines. As we continue to monitor our local levels, we will require indoor masking in our office if our local level is upgraded to HIGH.
