COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates2022-01-15T16:29:36-06:00

If you think that your child might be infected with Coronavirus, please contact us at (501) 224-5437 and ask to speak with one of our nurses.  You will be given instructions on what to do regarding testing.  We do Coronavirus testing at our office with an accurate molecular SARS-CoV-2 test, the Abbott ID Now testing platform.  This is an accurate molecular test which is used primarily for people who are sick with Coronavirus.  We can also arrange for an even more accurate PCR type test at Arkansas Children’s Hospital for people who are exposed and yet have no symptoms.  You can find out more information by clicking on our Corona virus page.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, do not come to our office for Coronavirus treatment.   A nurse will be screening all visitors to the clinic. For mild symptoms, it is best to stay at home and use our common cold guidelines to treat this illness:  Tylenol for fever, and extra fluids to prevent dehydration.   Almost all young children fall into the category of mild disease.  If your child has COVID-19 and also has a chronic medical condition such as described by the CDC here, please schedule a telemedicine visit with us to discuss the situation.  In the rare event that your child develops severe Coronavirus disease symptoms such as shortness of breath, dehydration, confusion or feeling faint, like they might pass out, call 911 or go to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital emergency room.  Please call the ACH ER prior to arrival to tell them of your emergency to get instructions on how to enter the emergency room.
