Welcome to Our Practice

Connecticut Asthma and Allergy Center

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

  • UPDATE: We are asking our shot patients 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/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
  • We are sanitizing the waiting room chairs and surfaces at least twice per day. 
  • Patients who arrive with active symptoms are required to put on a mask and are roomed as quickly as possible. 
  • There is a health screen implemented by Hartford Healthcare that all patients must complete upon booking 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.
  • Please be patient with us as we are sanitizing every exam room from top to bottom between each patient visit.  All equipment such as blood pressure cuffs, otoscopes, stethoscopes will be sanitized between patients.  This takes time and may cause some delays with rooming patients.
  • 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.
  • We recommend that all of our patients follow the CDC guidelines for prevention of exposure: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fabout%2Fprevention-treatment.html
     
  • Our shot patient appointments are being spread out to avoid crowding in the waiting room.  Shots are by appointment only.  We are proactively calling patients who were booked at high volume times to attempt to reschedule and spread out the appointments.
  • We are offering limited appointments for telemedicine.  If you are calling to reschedule an appointment due to inability to come into our office, you will be offered a telemedicine appointment.  We are using a secure, encrypted, HIPAA compliant application called Zoom.  These encounters should be conducted via tablet or laptop. 

Thank you all for your patience as we navigate this difficult situation.  As information continues to evolve, we will keep both this site and our website updated.
