COVID-19 Guidelines, updated 7/23/2020

Masks/Cloths Face Coverings

All West Alabama Pediatrics physicians and staff will continue to wear masks, and will continue to follow the ADPH guidelines that require all parents and patients 7 years and older to wear masks or other cloth face coverings. We also encourage mask/cloth coverings as tolerated in ages 2-6.

We have separated our practice into 2 clinics- The Well Child Clinic (including Newborns & Lactation) is on the right side of our building and the Urgent Care Clinic (UCC) is on the left. Each clinic has its own separate entrance, exit, designated exam rooms and staff. Exam rooms will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after every use, with our COVID-19 cleaning protocols, no matter the reason for the visit.

Social Distancing

To help ease congestion and maintain social distancing in the office, we'll continue to ask that only 1 parent accompany any child over 2 months old. We also ask that, if at all possible, siblings and other children without appointments stay home.

Well Child Clinic Waiting Rooms are Open- Our Well Child & Newborn Waiting rooms are open again, with chairs spaced out to ensure plenty of safe physical distancing. We've designed our schedules and our patient flow to minimize wait times and to get you to your exam room as quickly as possible. Patients and families who come to see us for Well Visits must be WITHOUT fever and/or respiratory symptoms, AND have NO exposure to anyone POSITIVE for COVID-19 (or anyone with a COVID-19 test pending) in the last 14 days.

We do House Calls!

See one of the West Alabama Pediatrics physicians via video or phone call from your own home! We are performing Telemedicine Visits for any questions or concerns you may have about your child. In-Office Sick Visits are scheduled by the physician as directed from the Telemedicine Visit. We'll continue the added safety measure of having all patients with fever and/or respiratory symptoms check-in and wait from their cars. Text when you arrive at the office, and we'll text you when your exam room is ready. You will enter through the UCC doors on the left side of our building. Thanks for helping us keep everyone safe!
