Childhood Illness and COVID
With all the concern about COVID, MPA would like to remind all our parents
and guardians that childhood illnesses still occur despite the pandemic.
Your child can still get an ear infection, strep throat or have an asthma
flare up. Their eczema, rashes, Roseola, fevers without cause, significant
cough and cold or pneumonia can happen any day & NOT BE COVID. The
sick needs of all children are being evaluated & treated by our providers
every day since the pandemic began.
COVID is far from the only issue children need to be evaluated
for when they are ill.
as we book children with your worry about COVID, your Primary Care Providers
& our staff are treating each as a routine sick visit: asking you questions, listening to your history, evaluating & examining
to determine what illness your child might have.
following the COVID CDC Guidelines, MPA will keep you, your children & our staff safe in these evaluations. The
Providers come to you no matter what the weather; in your car, outside our office or in the individual exam rooms in our
South Windsor shed. We continue to practice comprehensive pediatrics in
caring for the sick needs of our patients—your children— no
matter what the location.
