All patients must bring and wear their own mask before entering the office.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Enhanced Infection Control Policy and Safety Measures

At Columbia Asthma and Allergy, patient and staff safety are our top priorities. Our offices are open to both in-person and telemedicine visits. We prefer telemedicine if an in-office procedure such as skin testing is not applicable. Our staff will work with you to figure out the best options for your visit to ensure optimal safety for all. The following are safety measures we have put into place:

  1. All patients must bring and wear their own mask/face covering before entering the office.
  2. Staff are required to wear face masks.
  3. A health screening and temperature check for COVID-19 symptoms is performed at the door for every person entering the clinic.
  4. Social distancing is in effect in all waiting rooms and patient areas. Please help us by maintaining at least 6 feet from others.
  5. All clinic visits, including allergy shots, are by appointment only.
  6. Appointments are limited to the patient only, or if the patient is a minor, only the parents may accompany the minor.
  7. We have implemented an enhanced disinfection policy for all waiting areas, exam rooms, and equipment.
  8. Signs outside and inside the clinic are reminders for social distancing and infection control.
