Reopening & Pandemic Tips from other AACO members 

-Limit the number of people in the office. Only allow the patient in the office (not friends, family). Let patients wait in their cars and call them when it is time to come in. 

-Use a touchless thermometer before letting the patient enter

-Put all patient forms consents in electronic format ask them to fill out on-line to avoid having patients touch paper and pens

-Use hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle after each patient encounter
