Given the current national emergency around the Cov19 epidemic, we at Ark Clinical Research, want to assure our patients that we are taking prudent measures to protect our patients and our staff. Our front office is instructing those who have any sign of upper respiratory illness or feeling sick to stay at home and not come to the office. We have also instituted a social spacing of expanding our waiting area to include the internal and external hallways. We are also continuing to wipe down high touch surfaces in the waiting room, front office, and back office areas. All back office staff will continue to be handwashing after each patient encounter. We will keep you updated as the situation evolves, but for now, we are continuing to see allergy and asthma patients and our research volunteers on our usual schedule.
