Natomas Veterinary Hospital, like all businesses, is grappling with the corona virus pandemic. The impact the virus is having on the lives and daily routines of most Americans is truly unprecedented. Veterinary facilities are considered essential business, and are not forced to close during the shelter in place orders that local counties have enacted. Due to the reality that it is not possible to completely prevent the community spread of the virus from person to person, we have decided to make coming to work optional for all our employees. This is particularly relevant now, as there is a huge shortage of effective personal protective equipment. That being said, per the guidance of veterinary experts, we have implemented new protocols to reduce close contact of our staff with clients. Further, per the advise of public health experts, we are also screening clients who have signs or symptoms of the corona virus infection and advising them to not come to the clinic in person. For those clients bringing their pets to our clinic, we are not allowing clients to enter the building. Clients are to call from their cars to anounce their arrival and then wait in their cars until they are told to bring their pets to the front door. All clients need to practice social distancing and wear a mask when approaching the front entrance to interact with our staff. We have had to shorten clinic hours to ease the burden on our remaining staff. We appreciate all our staff members help during these trying times, and hope our clients will work patiently with us while we continue to do our best to treat the Natomas pet community.
