At Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, the health & safety of our patients, providers and staff have always been our top priority. We continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance for healthcare settings and continue to implement procedures to adhere to these guidelines.
As you may know, the CDC recently released new masking recommendations that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance themselves. However, as explicitly stated by the CDC, these new recommendations do NOT include healthcare settings, like CCSD.
While we can’t wait to see your smiling faces when visiting our practice, because we are a healthcare setting, CCSD will continue to require:
- ALL patients, providers and staff must continue to wear face masks, regardless of their vaccination status.
- We will continue to follow the full infection control procedures required by the CDC for healthcare settings.
- This includes masks, social distancing, enhanced infection prevention, monitoring and screening staff & patients (health survey and temp checks), and sanitizing clinic rooms and common areas.
If this requirement changes, we will notify our patients ASAP! Thank you for your understanding and continued trust in us as your dermatologic healthcare provider.
