CAAC response to COVID-19
CAAC is dedicated to keeping our patients and staff protected as best we can from COVID-19.

  • We are asking ALL patients over 2 years of age to wear cloth face coverings when they come in. Here is a link from the CDC on how to make a face mask with or without sewing: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html?deliveryName=USCDC_2067-DM36401
  • We are sanitizing the waiting room chairs and surfaces at least twice per day. We are sanitizing every exam room from top to bottom between each patient visit. All equipment such as blood pressure cuffs, otoscopes, and stethoscopes will be sanitized between patients. 
  • We are asking that patients who are symptomatic schedule telemedicine visits. Office visits will be only for patients without symptoms.
  • There is a health screen implemented by Hartford Healthcare that all patients must complete upon booking and checking in for appointments. 
  • We advise shot patients who are worried about COVID-19 to schedule their appointments during off-peak hours to help avoid crowded waiting rooms.
  • We are asking ALL patients to not bring additional family members to appointments.  Minors should be accompanied by only one adult.  Siblings and other family members will not be permitted into the office unless they are also scheduled to be seen.
  • We will be asking ALL patients/caretakers to wash their hands with soap and water in the exam room as part of the rooming process.
  • Please bring a video capable device with Zoom downloaded in advance to your office visit in order to aid in the history taking process.
  • Patients with office appointments in West Hartford, Avon, Manchester, Middletown, and Hamden will be checked in by phone and wait in their car for an exam room to open. 
  • Our shot patient appointments are being spread out to avoid crowding in the waiting room.  Shots are by appointment only.  Please arrive at your scheduled appointment time. Early or late arrivals will be asked to reschedule by phone. 

Thank you all for your compliance with these rules as we navigate this difficult situation.  As information continues to evolve, we will keep our website updated.
