Effective immediately, administration of allergy injections will be limited to asthmatics and patients with stinging insect allergies.  

All non-urgent, in-office appointments will be rescheduled either to a later date or to a Telemedicine appointment.  

We feel this new policy achieves the best balance of honoring Governor Whitmer’s Stay-At-Home order while continuing to provide care for those most at risk.

Also, please refer to the latest Policy Update dated April 6, 2020. https://www.parkallergy.com/policy-update-april-6-2020/

Thank you for your understanding and your continued trust in Park Allergy Center.

Assume you have the virus and act accordingly. Most people act defensively, trying to not to get infected. On the other hand, acting as if you already have the virus and doing your best to prevent infecting others is another step up in prevention. The number of times you clean you hands will go up significantly.

Do not let your respiratory droplets land on someone else.  Obvious sources of respiratory droplets are sneezing and coughing, but one important source that can’t be overlooked is talking.  All of us spit a little, some more than others, while we talk.  Make sure you are at least 3 feet away when talking to someone, even loved ones (yes 6 feet is even better). 

Keep your hands clean, as they are a primary source of spreading respiratory droplets.  Lick your finger? Clean your hands. Touch your face? Clean your hands. Touch your hair? Clean your hands. Eat something? Clean your hands.  Reach for another slice of pizza?  Clean your hands before grabbing another slice.  Drink something?  Small droplets of saliva can land on you hands, contaminating them.  Clean your hands. 

Further, be aggressive with your defenses.  Open or close a public door?  Clean your hands.  Pump gas into your car?  Clean your hands.  Light switch. Clean your hands.  Keyboard/mouse?  Clean your hands.  Pencil?  Clean your hands.  Get the picture?
