February 21, 2023
We’re letting you know of a change to our mandatory mask policy. The New York State mask mandate for medical facilities expired on Sunday, February 12th. Our staff has discussed this matter with great consideration, and we have decided to make masks optional as of Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
We will continue to recommend, but not require, that our patients wear masks for their visits to our office. As always, if you are experiencing symptoms of illness, we kindly request that you reschedule your appointment for the safety of our staff and other patients.
Everyone working in our office is fully vaccinated and will continue to be. As always, we continue to maintain high standards of cleanliness and sanitation throughout our facility. Our doctors and staff are also no longer required to wear masks but will be happy to wear them in the exam room for your appointment at your request. Please let our front desk know in advance of your appointment so we may accommodate any such request to be masked. Masks will still be available at the front desk as a courtesy for the near future.
We want to thank you all for abiding by New York State’s mandatory mask policy that has been imposed on us over the past few difficult years. The pandemic has been hard on us all and your cooperation and support have been greatly appreciated.
