Masks Make A Difference

The strongest evidence we have says that wearing a mask and practicing social distancing are the most effective things we can do to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Masks now recommended by the CDC

The CDC is now recommending wearing cloth face coverings in public areas where social distancing is hard to maintain. Masks help prevent the spread of disease through speaking, coughing or sneezing.

Masks prevent accidental spread

Many people who have COVID-19 do not show any symptoms. When they go out without a mask, they can spread the disease unknowingly. Someone who does not show symptoms can give the virus to another person who could become critically ill.

Join Sound Family in staying safe

Our team members are wearing masks in all our clinics, to protect each other and patients. We require that all patients bring a mask to the clinic and wear it the entire time they are in the building. This mask guideline does not apply to children under age 5. We will provide you a mask if you do not have one of your own. For patients who cannot wear a mask, we will offer alternatives, including car visits or video visits.

How to properly wear a mask

Wearing your mask properly is important to prevent the spread of disease. Always wash your hands before you put on or take off your mask.

  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily

Thank you for all the support

We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support from our community, especially Farm 12, who has donated several hundred masks as well as sweet treats for our staff.

We continue to welcome mask or fabric donations

Masks and the materials to make them are in short supply these days. If you are able to sew and donate masks, or have extra material available to donate, we would be grateful for the support. Donations can be brought to any of our clinics or to our main office.

Our clinics remain open and safe

Thanks to our staff of professionals and our strict safety protocols, our clinics remain open and ready to care for you. Please do not delay needed care. In addition to in-office appointments, we can see you via telephone, video visits and car-side appointments.
