COVID-19 CLINICIAN UPDATE

March 19th, 2020

These are unprecedented times.  We understand you are facing a multitude of questions and concerns from your patients and staff each day, and we want to provide information and updates to help address some of your challenges.  We ask that you visit our Clinical COVID-19 website for the most up to date information.
What's New?

COVID-19 Pediatric Hotline - 833.226.2362

Connecticut Children's has launched a hotline for patients and families, answered 24/7 by pediatric clinicians.
 

PPE Supply Chain Update

We continue daily conversations with the state advocating for the region to obtain much needed PPE. We will update you as those conversations progress.  In the meantime, please see the latest PPE recommendations for you and your office.
 

Telemedicine

Commercial and state payers are temporarily covering all telemedicine visits, not just COVID-19 suspected cases.
 

COVID-19 Testing Update

Currently, Connecticut Children's is not a testing site for COVID-19.  We understand many hospitals are standing up their drive-through testing sites, and the following hospitals offer pediatric testing:
  • Bristol Hospital
  • Danbury Hospital
  • St. Francis Hospital
  • St. Mary's Hospital
  • Yale New Haven Hospital
As a reminder, the only patients who should be sent to the Emergency Department are patients that require medical intervention or are in respiratory distress.
