Over the past few weeks, COVID cases among children have been increasing. Children under age 12 are particularly vulnerable because a vaccine has not been authorized for their age group. Additionally, the spread of the Delta variant in our communities has caused cases to increase.
St. Luke’s is committed to caring for you and your family and will support you during this time. Currently our pediatric volumes are higher than normal; however, we will continue to be here for you and your children, whether for sick or well visits.
If your child has symptoms of COVID, or has had a possible exposure to COVID, please call your pediatrician or family doctor to request a virtual visit and/or COVID Test. This is necessary before a physician can provide a return-to-school. Due to the high volume of cases, there may be longer than normal wait times to get through to our offices. Please be patient and leave us a voicemail - we will return your call as quickly as possible.
If your child does not have a pediatrician or family doctor, please call St. Luke’s InfoLink at 1-866-STLUKES (785-8537), Option 4.
