Coronavirus precautions at home and at Paragon Orthopedic Center

Paragon Orthopedic Center is taking the threat of the coronavirus seriously and is asking patients if they have recently been to China at check-in.  We want to do what we can to keep you and Southern Oregon safe.  As always, we practice stringent sanitary standards in our clinic and frequently wash our hands.  The Center for Disease Control is urging the public to do the same, saying that washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub is an active defense against its spread.  Make sure you do so for at least 20 seconds, which is about the same as singing “Happy Birthday” twice.  They also recommend avoidance measures, such as avoiding close contact with someone who appears ill, or avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.  Let’s work together to keep the coronavirus out of Grants Pass and Southern Oregon!  Read more advice and information about coronavirus here:
