The worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues, and Marietta Plastic Surgery is keeping the health and safety of our patients and employees a top priority. At this time, we are continuing patient care, appointments, and surgeries as scheduled.
Currently, the immediate health risk to the general American public is still considered low by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, with the virus confirmed in our state, Marietta Plastic Surgery is following the CDC’s recommendations to help prevent exposure and spread of the virus.
In an effort to minimize exposure, Marietta Plastic Surgery asks all patients to reschedule their appointments, if they’re experiencing any of the following:
• Fever, symptoms of a lower respiratory infection (cough or shortness of breath), or have been exposed to a person with a coronavirus or the flu.
• Those who have traveled to any of the high-risk areas defined by the CDC, including China, Iran, Italy, Japan, or South Korea.
We are taking measures daily to make sure all patient areas, as well as our operating rooms, are kept to the highest level of safety and sanitary standards:
• Hand sanitizer available for all patients, visitors, and staff.
• Employees frequently wash and disinfect hands.
• Surface areas cleaned and sanitized after each patient.
• Operating rooms strictly follow AAAA standards.
Additionally, Marietta Plastic Surgery also recommends patients take the follow precautions:
• Avoid handshakes and limit interpersonal contact.
• Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand-sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay home if you are feeling sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.).
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
