HOW DOES COVID-19 SPREAD?

Currently experts believe the most common way COVID spreads is through close contact with an infected person.  Since  you  can  be  contagious  &  not  know  it,  we  have  to  take  extra  precautions.

  • Patient & Clinician in a small exam room face to face with each other for 20 minutes dramatically increases the risk.
  • Masks have been shown to reduce the risk by  over 50% when worn by both parties  If  social  distancing  can  not  be  maintained.
  • Washing hands & disinfecting surfaces also reduces risk.
