How Groton Wellness is currently handling the Coronavirus

Considering our values of community, care, and collaboration it is our intention to keep you informed. 

The CDC considers this new virus (COVID-19) a public health concern based on current information and Massachusetts has declared a State of Emergency. Since information is constantly changing we encourage all of our patients and staff to read the following CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Visit this site on a regular basis to ensure you have the most up-to-date information and guidelines.

First and foremost, the safety of our patients and staff are of critical importance. Groton Wellness has activated a plan that will guide decisions based on recommendations from authorities. We are frequently disinfecting our common areas and taking other precautions. In an effort to prevent unnecessary exposure we may make adjustments to scheduling and communication with patients as this situation continues to evolve.

 

Symptoms that require rescheduling your appointment

We are asking patients to remain home if you are experiencing or have experienced in the last 14 days any of the following:

  • respiratory illness
  • fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath, difficulty breathing
  • traveled in the past month (domestic or international)

Symptoms may be flu-like, ranging from mild to serious.

Note: Age and other health conditions can mean a more significant illness.

Please call us at 978-449-9919 if you have an appointment scheduled and are displaying any of these symptoms. We will help to reschedule you in the near future.
