I am worried that I will expose my child by taking him/her to the doctor? Is it worth going in for just a well child visit?
While social distancing should be consistently considered, healthcare provider offices are reliably following standard guidelines to ensure the safety of their patients, and well-child visits are very important for a child’s health and safety. The AAP strongly recommends continuing these visits throughout the pandemic However, if you or your child is feeling sick on the day of the visit, make sure to notify your doctor’s office, so that they can take necessary precautions or redirect you to a more appropriate form of healthcare.
