COVID Safety and Home Visit Readiness

Please wear a mask and avoid visitors in the home while having your home visit. Telehealth is available instead of in home if you prefer. Home visits will not occur while anyone is feeling unwell. Please have soap and a hand towel available for me at your home visit. To get the most out of your visit, try to have your baby ready for a feeding around the time I arrive.
