We are closely following local, state and national guidelines for management of this situation and we have the health and safety of our patients and staff at the forefront of our minds.
Although the number of new COVID-19 cases in Maryland hit a low in early July, the number of new infections has been rising steadily since then and has suddenly risen dramatically due to the Omicron variant. In view of this, we continue to require that all people who enter our office wear a face mask during their stay with us (excepting the extremely young, or those with particular disabilities).
Please be aware that GBMC Hospital also requires a mask for all visitors in the common areas of the building.
If you are scheduled for an appointment with us but develop symptoms that could be consistent with COVID infection, please call us immediately and do not come to the office.
