The lockdowns ordered due to COVID-19 across the world are being gradually rolled back. In dermatology, elective and “non-essential” services can again be offered to our patients. I will focus on the steps we need to take in order to reopen or re-ramp up our practices in the “new normal” necessitated by the many government health department mandates and to keep our patients and staff safe at our offices.
1. Take the appropriate steps to keep patients and staff safe in the setting of COVID-19
2. Reassure patients and staff to come back to your office in the setting of COVID-19
3. Minimize liability risk at your office in the setting of COVID-19
