Special Announcement – Coronavirus Policy – March 1st, 2020

ATLANTIC ORTHOPAEDICS & SPORTS MEDICINE
CORONAVIRUS (COVID – 19) POLICY

The doctors of Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine (AOSM) take the threat of COVID – 19 seriously and want to inform patients on our policy.

All employees are reminded to frequently wash their hands with soap and warm water as well as to try to avoid touching their faces. Employees with flu-like symptoms are sent home and encouraged to follow up with their primary care doctors. We have recommended refraining from shaking hands during this outbreak.

Patients who are sick and have cold or flu symptoms are asked to consult with their primary care doctors and not attend their AOSM appointments until they have recovered. Sick patients who need emergency orthopaedic care are asked to go to their local emergency room.

In addition, we are taking measures to provide extra cleaning throughout the building including waiting room chairs, doorknobs, fitness equipment, handrails and bathrooms.

The physicians and employees of AOSM thank you for maintaining good hygiene and minimizing transmission of COVID-19.

Sincerely,

The Providers of Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine
