Although no mention is made of the age or identity of the patient in the notification, one would suppose that the patient is a child. The office says the patient is doing well and remains asymptomatic.

Tender Care Pediatrics stresses that they handled the case by NJ Health Department guidelines and that staff who had contact with the patient have been quarantined.

As a precaution, the practice is temporarily limiting visits to their office over the next two weeks and is encouraging patients to use telemedicine.
