To Our Fairfield Veterinary Hospital Family:
We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation in our local community as well as guidelines from
the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and the American Veterinary Medical
Association. Our goal is to ensure that we to continue to meet the needs of our clients and their pets,
protect our employees and keep our community safe.
Here’s what we’re doing:

multiple times per day, paying particularly close attention to door handles, counter tops, and
chairs. Examinations rooms will continue to be disinfected in between each appointment.
· We are instructing staff who feel ill to stay home and consult their healthcare providers for

· We are requiring all staff to regularly wash hands in between appointments or any other
contact with clients (as is already our standard of care).
Here’s what we’d like you to do:
· We would like to ask those who have traveled recently (internationally or abroad) OR those
who have been in contact with someone that has traveled to affected areas recently to consult
with their health care provider regarding self-quarantine recommendations.
· We are asking all clients who have a fever, cough or other clinical signs consistent with
Coronavirus or Influenza to kindly reschedule any routine appointments. We have protocols in
place for how to handle urgent/illness visits for pets of clients that have the above issues and we
can accommodate them on a case-by-case basis.
Rest assured, veterinarians are pros at handling infectious disease scenarios, and we are doing all we
can to keep our four-legged and two-legged friends safe. We thank everyone for their understanding
and cooperation regarding this public health crisis. Please contact us if you have any other questions or
