Safety Protocols — July 2023

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma treats patients who are immunocompromised, as well as patients with respiratory diseases that make them vulnerable to complications from viral infections. For those reasons, we continue to recommend masks for most patients and guests visiting our clinics. However, masks are no longer mandatory.

Masks will continue to be required for:

  • A patient who is immunocompromised or at high-risk for infection
  • A guardian or companion of a patient who is at high-risk for infection

Masks are no longer required for physicians and staff when providing care, except:

  • When a patient or parent requests that a mask be worn
  • When caring for a patient that may place others at higher risk of infection
  • At offices that have opted to maintain heightened safety protocols

Any patient or visitor with a potentially contagious illness should avoid coming to our offices. Please call to reschedule your appointment or contact your AA&A office to discuss any special circumstances.  Thank you for continuing to assist us in our efforts to keep all staff and patients safe.

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma will continue to monitor community conditions that impact the health and safety of our patients and staff.  We update policies and protocols as warranted. If you have any questions or concerns, please call your Atlanta Allergy office.
