COVID-19 Response

CORONAVIRUS  RESPONSE

Tullahoma Pediatrics, PLLC/Manchester Pediatrics/Royal Pediatrics is dedicated to keeping our patients and staff healthy.  To that end, we are staying up to date on the novel Coronavirus pandemic.  This is a rapidly changing situation and we are adjusting each day to new information.  We have made the following changes/recommendations to respond to the Coronavirus pandemic:

******************************************************************************************************************************************* Effective July 28, 2020, face masks are required to be worn by all persons 3 years old and older in all locations. 

 As of May 8, 2020, we are cleaning our exam and wait rooms with UV-C Lights at all locations.  

UV-C cleaning kills 99.9% of all airborne and surface bacteria and viruses. 

We still diligently clean our clinics using CDC recommended infectious control protocols prior to running the UVC lights.

*******************************************************************************************************************************************

If you or your child has a fever, cough and known exposure to someone with coronavirus, please call the clinic before arrival.  DO NOT WALK IN TO THE CLINIC.    Please call (931) 455-2674.  You will be asked to call when you arrive and wait in your car until a nurse gives you further instructions.

We recommend that all patients, including those who are well, wait in the car after checking in to maintain social distancing. We understand that some patients do not have this option, so the wait rooms will be open.

Please only bring your sick child with you to the appointment. Please keep siblings at home or have them wait in the car with another adult. This is to avoid further exposure.

Your child will be given a mask to wear (if available and age appropriate) to prevent spread of illness.  We do not currently have a large enough supply to provide masks to other family members.  Only well adults should be bringing a child to an appointment.

We are scheduling sick and well appointments at certain times.  There are some exceptions, so you may be asked to check in at an alternate entrance.

          Tullahoma AM- Sick children, PM-Well children

          Manchester AM- Well children, PM sick children

          Royal, Fayetteville AM - Well children, PM sick children

Cases with Covid19 symptoms or exposure are seen in an isolated area of the facility. 

We have removed books, magazines, and toys from the waiting and exam rooms to prevent the spread of illness.
