As many of you know, Whatcom County released a Declaration of Emergency regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) due to a singular confirmed local case in our area on March 10.
The Whatcom County Health Department advised the community to “stay home if you have symptoms [of the virus] or have a respiratory illness.” They also caution those who are sick and go out in public to “wear a mask in public places to prevent the spread of illnesses to others in the area.”
We take the health of our patients very seriously and we genuinely care about your well-being. If you are sick, we ask that you reschedule your appointment time to a future date to reduce the chances of spreading any sort of illness to others that may not be able to handle the virus. If you are sick AND have a dental emergency, please call us before you come in and we will assess each situation on a case-by-case basis and try our best to accommodate your needs.
Rest assured that we are still open for our normal day-to-day business hours and appointments. We are putting in an extra effort to sanitize any surfaces that our patients regularly come into contact with, and deep-clean each room between patient visits.
Keep an eye on our Facebook Page and/or website for additional notices and health department related updates.
Yours in Health & Wellness,
Dr. Eric Yaremko and Staff
