Effective April 14, 2023:
- We are mask optional.
- Children are allowed back into the office.
- We will continue to have masks available for anyone with symptoms of upper respiratory infections.
- We will continue to offer telehealth appointments if appropriate for your care. Handwashing and staying home if you feel ill are the best ways to prevent the spread of infections.
Vaccinations against Covid-19 is still important. In pregnant patients, Covid-19 can cause infection of the placenta and death of the baby in the uterus. While this is a rare occurrence, we must do all we can to prevent this. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine, including getting a COVID-19 booster shot when it’s time to get one, can help protect you and your baby from serious health problems from COVID-19.
Thank you for entrusting Westar OB/GYN to care for your health.
