Despite the CDC and Governor Lamont lifting the business restrictions and mask requirements for vaccinated individuals, Saybrook Veterinary Hospital will remain “curbside” and require masks for the time being. We would really like to be able to have clients in the clinic with their pets but several factors prevent us from doing this currently. 

The size of the clinic and exam rooms are very small and having clients inside right now would actually decrease the number of patients we can see in a day. 

A few of the staff members are not able to be vaccinated yet and several of the staff live with young children or the elderly. We personally live with our 87 year old mother who requires 24 nursing care and cannot be vaccinated. 

We are also going to continue to REQUIRE masks when interacting with the staff, INCLUDING OUTDOORS. The decision to get vaccinated is a personal one. We are not going to police who is or is not vaccinated. Masks will be required for all. 

These are requirements and are not up for debate. Please be patient and kind to our staff, as they are following my direction. Failure to comply with these requirements or mistreatment of staff will not be tolerated. Please know that we are working diligently to develop a plan to bring you safely back into the clinic with your pet, and will advise of future changes to our protocol.

 Thank you for your support and understanding
