Office Mask Policy Update

May 12, 2023

On May 11, 2023, the COVID Public Health Emergency will end and along with it the mask mandate in healthcare settings. In keeping with this change, and in step with other healthcare organizations like Boston Children’s Hospital, we have updated our Office Mask Policy. This policy applies to all patients, family members, and staff.

Healthy People/Well Visits:

Starting May 11th, wearing masks in the offices of Westwood Mansfield Pediatric Associates will no longer be required during well visits if the patient/guardian is asymptomatic.

Sick People/Illness Visits:

Masks will still be required for patients being seen for sick visits or for well visits when they have symptoms that are potentially compatible with COVID (including runny nose, cough, congestion, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea or fever). Additionally, guardians who have symptoms are asked to please wear a mask.

Briefly, people (including patients and family members) without COVID-compatible symptoms do not need to wear masks. People with COVID-compatible symptoms are still required to wear a mask while in the office.

Please note: Westwood-Mansfield Pediatrics has an office policy of mutual respect. Within your medical team there may be individuals with different medical risk factors - if a provider requests that you and your child wear a mask, we ask that you respectfully agree to do so for their comfort and safety. Similarly, if you would like your medical team to wear masks during your visit, you can request this at any time as well.

No More Waiting in Car/Calling to Check in!

Additionally, starting tomorrow (May 11th), all patients are instructed to come right on in to our front desk to check in (regardless of symptoms).

We look forward to seeing your smiling faces!

Spring Asthma

April 14, 2023

With spring here, we would like to offer our asthmatic patients a few reminders to help make your family's spring a healthy one. Remember the early warning signs of asthma and check if your child's room is dust and dust-mite free.

Springtime Allergies

April 5, 2023

Each year, tree pollen season generally starts around the middle of March and lasts until the end of June. Symptoms are commonly seen in children during this period, with symptoms including a runny nose, sneezing, sore throat (especially at night and early in the morning), and a slight cough.

Postpartum Depression

January 30, 2023

With our commitment to children also comes a commitment to their family. Postpartum anxiety and depression are common. The newborn phase can also significantly impact the mental health of fathers. Depression and anxiety at any stage of life is common. You are not alone. You should never be alone.

Weekend Office Scheduling Change - All Appointments to be Self-Scheduled on MyChart

January 20, 2023

Starting this weekend (January 21 and 22), all weekend visits will be self-scheduled on MyChart. It is our hope that this will enable patients who wish to be seen to more easily access our appointments without needing to call and experience telephone wait-times.
