Masking & Screening Policies April 2023

Effective April 3, 2023 the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) ended the Secretary of Health Mask Order, which required universal masking in healthcare facilities for people age 5 and older.

In this office, you are always welcome to wear a mask or request that we wear masks, and we may default to mask wearing ourselves for the time being.

If you are sick with anything infectious, let’s reschedule.

If you are recovering from infectious illness, or if you have recently been exposed to infectious illness, please check in with us in the day or two before your appointment so we can make a plan together. We will do the same for you.

Please refer to our Coronavirus/COVID-19 Policies and Practices for more details about how we are keeping each other safe at this time.

Thanks, and stay well!
