We are pleased to once again offer in person assessments and treatments at the clinic to both new and returning clients. Our commitment to your health has never been more top of mind. We have taken the following measures to limit risk and ensure a safe environment for both clients and staff:
Screening: Before entry staff & clients are assessed for symptoms and exposure history.
Physical Distancing: We will be restricting the total number of individuals in the clinic at one time. There will be no waiting room within the clinic.
Appropriate use of PPE: It is mandatory for all clients to wear a clean mask at all times while in the clinic. You may use a cloth mask. All staff will use masks.
Cleaning & Disinfecting: You will be asked to sanitize your hands before entering and upon leaving the clinic. After each patient visit, the treatment room will be cleaned and disinfected. Common areas will be cleaned and disinfected regularly during the day.
We will continue to adjust our measures and protocols as necessary. While this is a challenging time for all of us, remember that under every mask is a friendly familiar face who is there to help you recover and make your experience a positive one! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
