COVID-19 UPDATE

In this turbulent time, we want to assure you that we are taking extra precautions to help you stay healthy during this worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. We want you to know that we have reviewed with our employees the recommended precautions listed on the Center for Disease Control website.

The recommended guidelines have prohibited large groups meeting together. (100 people or more) We still see a large need for physical therapy, and our number 1 priority is to continue to take great care of our patients. Physical therapy meetings are generally very small (often “1 on 1”) and the risk can be maintained as extremely low when proper hygiene and sanitation are managed.

We are doing everything we can to take extra precautions until such time as we are informed that this global health concern has passed.

Here is a summary of some of the things we are doing:

  • We can now offer a call-in “check-in” from the parking lot, where you can call and let us know that you are here. And we’ll alert you when a cleaned treatment area is ready for you–so that you can avoid waiting in the waiting room.
  • Each patient will wash their hands with soap and water upon arriving to the clinic (even before signing in) to maintain the clean environment.
  • We are concerned and staying proactive in keeping our facilities as clean as possible.
  • We continue to use frequent sanitation and thorough hand-washing between patient interactions.
  • We have increased our cleaning schedule in frequency and scope.
  • We encourage anyone (patients and staff) with any ill symptoms (runny nose, cough, fever, etc) to stay home and reschedule appointments.

Here are some recommendations of things you can do:

  • Wash your hands and use hand-sanitizer frequently–including when you enter and leave the facility. Avoid touching your face at all.
  • Cancel/reschedule your appointment if you don’t feel well or have any symptoms (such as fever, running nose, cough, etc)
  • Avoid places where big groups are gathered together.
  • You can choose bring a face mask, although it’s not recommended by the CDC for well individuals.
