Update Management Guidelines for COVID-Infected and COVID-Exposed Individuals

What We Anticipate from Omicron & FAQ
Omicron has shown itself to be very easily transmissible. There is some suggestion that it may be less virulent, but it is still a little too early to say that with confidence.
COVID Vaccine Update
This week, we expect the CDC to grant approval of COVID Vaccines for 5-11-year-old children. We at Westwood-Mansfield Pediatrics strongly recommend that all eligible individuals (this includes you, parents!) receive COVID vaccinations.
