As of today (June 12th, 2020), face masks are required for all appointments until further notice.
We are allowing one (1) person to accompany their pet(s) for appointments.
"JUNE COVID-19 UPDATE:
Face masks are required for
NON-VACCINATED staff and clients until further notice. (Off-site Asavet clinics
will follow local rules for each location.)
Santa Cruz staff will continue to
implement several safety protocols for ourselves and our clients. We will
be disinfecting public areas three times a day and continue to wear masks at
all times on duty. Exam rooms are sanitized between each use. Staff
is monitoring their own temperatures twice a day at home as well. We ask
clients who are sick DO NOT come to our clinic. If you are COVID positive
and have a family member or friend bring your pet to the clinic, please notify
us ahead of time so we can take proper precautions.
Surgical check-in will still be taking
place curbside and we will ask our wonderful clients to continue to be patient
and wait in the parking lot in the car. If you have a regular
appointment, you will be asked to wait to be escorted into the clinic by a
technician and go immediately into an exam room. We ask that you stay in
your assigned exam room during the whole visit. Our staff is working very
hard to try and streamline this as best as possible and WE APPRECIATE YOUR
PATIENCE AND A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! We realize that it is getting hot outside
and are trying to limit waiting as much as possible. With that
said, we must limit gathering in our lobby to enforce social distancing
guidelines. We are a very busy clinic and are striving very hard to make
your visit as safe and efficient as possible.
We will update protocols as Arizona
Health Department and CDC updates on COVID activity across our state and what
recommendations they publish."
