Well Child Center’s Response to COVID-19

Well Child Center considers the health, safety and well-being of you and your family – our WIC clients and young dental patients – to be our highest priority.

While we are open during regular business hours during this Coronavirus outbreak, we are also screening all clients using a survey recommended by the Kane County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to keep our clients and community safe.

For our WIC families, the following exceptions for in-person appointments may be available during this Coronavirus outbreak:

1) You and your child(ren) may not be required to meet in-person temporarily to maintain services.
2) Nutrition Education will be completed via phone or internet. All WIC/Advocate Sherman classes are canceled until May 5th.
3) Food Instruments may be provided via curbside pick-up or in extreme cases via
US certified mail.

Please call your family’s WIC office for additional information about these temporary exceptions and to ensure your family’s services continue without disruption.

For our Pediatric Dental Clinic patients, we have and always will protect our young patients and dental team from infections and diseases by strict adherence to CDC’s standard precautions. However, at this time we have closed the dental clinic until March 31, as recommended by the Illinois State Dental Society. Please know we will treat dental emergencies during this closure, so please call 847-930-6721 if your child has a dental emergency.
