Masking is now optional for patients and visitors/families at Blue Fish Pediatrics.

Masking is situational (i.e., used for specific conditions/symptoms and for infection prevention) for Blue Fish staff.

Masking is strongly encouraged and recommended for patients, visitors, and staff members showing signs or symptoms of respiratory illness (e.g., fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat).
