COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus)

by Allegro Pediatrics

We are monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak as it continues to evolve. Our priority, as always, is to care for our patients, to help prevent the spread of illness, and to protect our Allegro community. 

During the time of Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, we are making temporary changes to help protect our community. We are expanding our new Virtual Visits, which can be scheduled online or by calling us at (425) 827-4600. Additionally, we are consolidating in-office care to our Bothell, Redmond, and Issaquah Highlands clinics for limited, non-infectious concerns and our Bellevue clinic for sick visits. These clinics will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Our Bothell and Bellevue clinics will also be open on weekends from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Our other clinics will be temporarily closed starting March 26th.

If  your child has a fever and/or cough and was exposed to COVID-19, please call your local Allegro clinic and choose option 3 to speak to a nurse.

What are we doing to keep our community healthy?

  • We are actively screening every single appointment and making sure that if a family has symptoms of coronavirus and a potential exposure, they are directed to an isolated area of our Bellevue office.
  • Staff and providers are screened for symptoms every day. They are also wearing masks and extra protection as needed to limit exposure to and transmission of the virus.
  • We have enhanced all of our cleaning procedures to reduce contamination of surfaces.
  • Daily communication to all Allegro staff and providers about coronavirus updates and best practices.

Monitoring Mental Health:

We understand that this may be a stressful time and it is important to monitor you and your child’s physical and mental health during an outbreak. The following resources are available to help you and your child during this time:

The best way to protect yourself and others is by washing your hands, covering your cough, and staying home if you are ill. Allegro Pediatrics will remain in close contact with public health officials as the situation continues to evolve and change. We will continue to follow guidelines set by the CDC and work with health officials to help keep our community safe. We will share any updates through our website and social media so that our families can stay informed.
