“As a kid, I wanted to be a superhero, a Jedi- someone who can make a difference in the world.  So I became a doctor, a pediatrician, a pediatric infectious disease doctor – to battle against enemies invisible to the naked eye, things that may harm the most vulnerable amongst us.  It’s my honor and privilege to serve my community.”

How to Isolate at Home if Your Child Tests Positive for COVID

How to Isolate at Home if your Child Tests Positive for Coronavirus/COVID-19

  • Stay home – no school, playdates, visitors in the house, etc.
    • If your child needs a medical appointment, your child can be seen by a provider through a telemedicine appointment.
    • If your child needs immediate medical attention, be sure to alert emergency personnel that your child is COVID-positive.
  • Separate your child from other household members and pets.  Ideally, your child should quarantine in their room.  If he or she is not old enough to stay alone in their room, try to keep your child in room of the house.  All household members should wear a mask at ALL times.
  • Wear a mask if you are unable to separate from your child – ALL household members should wear a mask at ALL times if unable to separate from COVID-positive household members.
  • Have your child use a separate bathroom is possible.  If not, disinfect all bathroom surfaces after your child’s use and be sure to wash your hands with soap and water after disinfecting.
  • Do not share utensils, dishes, cups/glasses, bedding, towels, etc.
  • All household contacts should practice excellent hand hygiene.  All household members should wash their hands with soap often, including any contact with COVID-positive household members, before and after eating, after using bathroom, and after coughing and sneezing.

How Long your COVID-Positive Child Needs to Isolate

You need all three of these criteria:

  1. At least 10 days since symptoms first appeared AND
  2. At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication AND
  3. Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving.

If you need a note for school/daycare, please call us for the note ONLY when all three of the above conditions are met.

If you need a note for sports clearance and you have met all the criteria to end isolation, please make an appointment for sports clearance at least two weeks after your child’s positive test result.

We cannot clear your child for sports participation without an office visit.

COVID Vaccine Information

COVID Vaccine Information for PHA Patients

 

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, OR NEED MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL THE STATE COVID-19 HOTLINE NUMBER AT 211.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ONLY HAVE THE INFORMATION BELOW

In the coming days we anticipate that those age 16 and older with certain underlying health conditions will be eligible for vaccination against the virus that causes COVID-19.  Underlying conditions include obesity, medical complexity, severe genetic disorders, severe neurologic disorders, inherited metabolic disorders, Diabetes, Asthma (moderate to severe), Down syndrome, chronic lung disease, immunosuppression due to cancer or immune-weakening medications, Sickle Cell disease, smoking, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, and Cystic fibrosis.

PHA highly recommends that you register and be vaccinated as soon as possible if you qualify.

For more information, visit the CT Vaccination Portal.

Telephone: Those without internet access can call Connecticut’s COVID Vaccine Appointment Assistance Line at 877-918-2224.  The phone system was created in partnership with the Department of Public Health and United Way of Connecticut and is specifically targeted to provide support for eligible vaccine recipients who have limited technology access, or who have language, disability, or other barriers that could prevent them from using existing self-scheduling options successfully.  The line will take calls Mondays through Fridays from 8:00am to 4:30pm and will offer a call-back option when all contact specialists are busy serving other callers.  The team will aim to return calls as soon as possible, with the goal of same-day response.

For more details about the tentative rollout of the COVID-19 vaccinations in Connecticut, please reference the following resources:

Update on COVID Testing

November 11, 2020

Due to increase in testing volumes, both Yale & Quest labs are experiencing scheduling and resulting delays.

It may take up to 5 days for you to get a scheduled appointment after either lab has received your Clinician’s order for COVID testing.

Results may take 2-5 days from the date of testing.

Please be sure to look for your results on MyChart (Yale) or MyQuest (Quest)

Unfortunately, PHA is not able to schedule any faster, nor get results any quicker.  Thank you for your understanding.

 

Asymptomatic Covid Testing

Asymptomatic patients who want a COVID test should go to Yale COVID-19 Testing to “request testing”.  These results will be available to you through MyChart.

Another option for asymptomatic patients is the CVS Minute Clinics Drive Up Covid Testing.  They offer PCR testing (nasal swab) for ages 10 and older.  You can schedule an appointment online within 1 -2 days without a doctors order.  These results will also be available to you through MyChart.
