Fertility Treatment and Social Distancing are Codependent During the COVID19 Outbreak

As we continue to adjust to life during the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak it is important that we adjust our activities. Fertility treatment is ESSENTIAL care for those that need it. Our goal is to continue continue to provide this care for all of those seeking treatment–but it will require their assistance as well. Here in Colorado our use of social distancing has clearly reduced the severity of the outbreak. I’ve summarized in a videoblog the recommendations to keep our patients, our staff  and our community safe: https://youtu.be/7sBN7WgC35I .

So please continue to stay safer-at-home when possible and follow established social distancing when out in public place.

COVID19 and Fertility Treatment: an update for patients in Colorado

Treatment for fertility patients has been challenging during the COVID19 Outbreak. There is agreement that fertility treatment is essential and not elective. But whether or not it was urgent created some confusion as whether or not treatment should be continued or halted during the early days of the outbreak in the United States.

CORONA VIRUS

At this point, it is becoming more apparent that various regions are experiencing this pandemic very differently. Here’s the latest update for patients seeking care at our center in Colorado: https://youtu.be/Ky5lcP-Rzus.

Stay safe, stay well and if you can please stay home.
