Changes to ENT NOVA Covid-19 policies:
Due to the tremendous effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine at preventing transmission, we are happy to announce that masks will be optional for all fully vaccinated patients (that’s two weeks after your final dose). This policy goes into effect June 1, 2021. When you come to the office, we will provide you with a sticker to wear during your visit so that other patients will know you are vaccinated and that they are safe in our office.
All unvaccinated patients, including children, will still need to wear a mask to protect themselves and any immunocompromised patients we may have in the office on the day of your visit. Please feel free to wear a mask if that is what you feel is best for your health. Our staff will be under the same guidelines you are, so don’t be surprised to see people’s lovely full faces. Doctors, nurses and medical assistants will mask up for any close contacts, regardless of your status.
We plan to keep our social distancing guidelines for now.
We are no longer taking temperatures for screening.
Vaccinated patients will no longer be screened for COVID-related questions prior to making an appointment.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office. Thank you for choosing Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists of Northern Virginia.
Drs. Josh Oppenheim, Josef Gurian, Richard Gardner, Michelle Roeser and Ashley O’Reilly.
