COVID - 19

We continue to closely monitor the status of the novel Coronavirus.   

As of May 1, 2020, to ensure the best care for all patients, we are seeing children from newborn to 2 years old for well child checks in the office. We are also seeing 4 and 11 year olds for their checkups since they need immunizations (shots) at those ages. If your child is due for shots please call to set up an appointment. To keep those visits safe, all well child visits are seen at times when there are no sick patients in the office, and our teams are in full protective gear. Only one caretaker should accompany each patient, and we ask everyone over 2 yrs old to wear a mask. Each room is cleaned after each visit. It is critically important that our children get their immunizations!   Click here to see the immunization schedule and resources for parents. We are now able to see all older children for check-ups by video visits. Please call the office to schedule your visit.  

COVID-19 Letter to Patients

Children's National Pediatricians & Associates is able to refer patients for COVID testing. Please contact the office to schedule an appointment to see if your provider recommends this.

Our offices are open for appointments only. During this time we are discouraging entering the office for anything other than the appointment.  If you need to drop off forms, please send through the patient portal or fax.  We will email forms back through the portal, rather than having you pick them up in the office in person.  Please feel free to call our office with questions. 

We are here to meet all of your needs as safely as possible. 

The best ways to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses (including Coronavirus and the Flu)

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. 
  • Immediately throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

We've compiled frequently asked questions about how the CNPA primary care practices are responding to coronavirus. Please read to learn how we are changing some of our office operations to adapt to the situation while remaining open and available to our patients.
