  • We require all team members and visitors to undergo daily screening using questionnaire and non-contact temperature checks
  • Any employee or visitor presenting symptoms consistent with Covid-19 will be asked to go home according to CDC guidelines

Spacing and Distancing

  • As always, all care is one-on-one with a licensed physical therapist
  • We have reorganized our space to allow for increased physical distancing
  • Staff schedules are staggered to enhance distancing & minimize exposure
  • We are currently prohibiting Vendors, Non-essential individuals from entering the clinics or waiting in the reception area

Hygiene

General

  • Regular COVID-19 response meetings in place to assess patient and team member risk
  • Follow ongoing guidance from appropriate authorities to continue minimizing risk
  • We understand that pain and injuries continue to occur. If your insurance requires a script, a call to you physician’s office may allow you to avoid an in-person doctor’s appointment.
