  • If you are coming for an appointment, please call our office when you arrive in our parking lot and we will come out and get either your fur baby and/or you. (We are trying to limit the exposure in our lobby and to the staff).

PRACTICE GOOD HYGINE

  • NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.
  • Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches, elevator buttons, etc.
  • Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.
  • Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand unless there is no other way to open the door. This is especially important on bathroom and office/commercial doors.
  • Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.
  • Wash hands with soap for 20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.
  • If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to.

 

From our family to yours, please stay safe.
