COVID-19 Updates



You and your child’s safety and health are our top priority!

We have same day SICK visits available every day! Both in-office and telemedicine (video) appointments are available. These appointments are for new conditions/issues that need to be evaluated urgently.


For in-office appointments we are asking to limit the number of siblings and/or family members who come into the appointment.

With the physicians and nurse practitioners of Dundalk Pediatrics

  1. Have your child with you in a well-lit room that is as quiet and free of distractions as possible. We get it… you’re at home, so do your best. If we end up seeing your other children or your pets, that’s ok! (and even fun for us to see them!)
  2. Visits work best if you use your smartphone. We will text you an invitation from Klara the day of the appointment.
  3. Tools to have available:
    1. A thermometer
    2. A flashlight or other light source (so we can look at your child’s throat)
    3. Your child’s weight or a scale
    4. The name/location of your pharmacy
  4. The doctor or nurse practitioner will have you help with your child’s physical exam. We might have you get them to say “ahh,” take their temperature, or show us a rash, among other things.
  5. Don’t be nervous to ask questions and have your child do the same. It might be fun for your child to show us their favorite toy or introduce their pet. Those things will help your child be more comfortable with the visit.

We’re excited to offer this new service!

What is the treatment for COVID-19?

Most people will get better on their own. However, you can relieve your symptoms by:

  • Taking over-the-counter medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain, fever, and cough. Do not give aspirin to children. Do not give cough medicine to children under 4.
  • Using a room humidifier or taking a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough
  • Getting plenty of rest
  • Drinking fluids

If you are worried about your symptoms, contact your health care provider.

Can COVID-19 be prevented?

The best way to reduce your risk of getting an infection or spreading it to others is by:

  • Getting vaccinated!  We have COVID-19 vaccines for ages 6 months to adults.  Call for a vaccine appointment.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitize with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your face, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that you frequently touch
  • Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Then throw away the tissue and wash your hands.
  • Staying home when sick
