Coronavirus ( COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic spreading worldwide including the United States.  As positive tests continue to rise in all 50 states, Kaleidoscope Kids continues to follow protocols developed by the Centers for Disease Control, federal and state governments, and health departments to protect our patients and staff. Kaleidoscope Kids will continue to adjust our appointment scheduling to further reduce the risk of exposing well patients to those with illness during this time.  Please be patient as we work to protect everyone's health and wellbeing. If you think you or your child has been exposed to Coronavirus 2019, call the office for advice regarding the need for an appointment or evaluation.

Kaleidoscope Kids has always followed strict disinfection and cleaning protocols to limit the spread of infection within our office.  This protocol has always involved cleaning the waiting room including toys, tables, counters, doorknobs,and chairs multiple times daily. Each exam room is cleaned thoroughly between every patient.  Bathrooms are checked and cleaned multiple times daily. We are currently limiting toys/books in the waiting area and removing them from the exam rooms to reduce the use of allocated cleaning supplies.  In addition to our routine cleaning, we perform a deep cleaning at the end of each business day.
