Covid-19 Virus Safety Precautions

WOW can’t believe it has been almost 2 months!!  This has been a long haul for everyone with such new and uncharted territoriality and situations. Over this “break” I have been working hard to learn about COVID 19 through classes and webinars from all over the world. Pretty cool! Then I had to switch to information that will help strengthen my practice and new ideas to bring in. Then I had to pivot to all the webinars and zoom meetings on how to open my practice back up. Whew! It has been a lot. But on the other side of all that I feel confident that I can open up, different and a little more complicated, but safely. 

I appreciate your patience for this long email. Please just stay with me – I am required to tell you most of this and I want to be sure all information you need is covered. 

In this email you will find (not necessarily in this order): 

  • Information on what you need to know about how my practice will be handling the current implementation of State and County guidelines
  • What you need to do before, during and after your treatments
  • What your treatment space will look like and what I will be doing to keep you as safe as I can by mitigating risks and taking precautions.
  • Scheduling

Before your appointment, I will be calling or texting to screen you with the required “Health/Symptom questionnaire”. I will be doing check in at the office, including discussion of your current issues and payment. 

Upon arrival at your appointment the following steps will be taken:

Please text me when you arrive. I will let you know when I am ready for you to come in. 

  1. A mask must be worn upon entering into the building. 
  2. Wash hands or use hand sanitizer when arriving immediately
  3. Temperature will be taken and charted
  4. The same “Health/Symptom Questionnaire” will need to be filled out verbally again.
  5. There are 2 private treatment rooms.  I will take you back to one of the rooms for a treatment after check in has been completed. 
  6. Both tables will be sterilized after each use and the use of disposable or washable covers for the face cradle will be used. I plan to continue to offer face down treatments, when deemed necessary.  Please do what you feel comfortable with. I am sanitizing it all and putting something disposable or washable on the floor under the face cradle. 
  7. There will be hand sanitizer, tissues and trash cans with lids for your use. The laundry will be kept in a container with a lid.
  8. We will do our best to maintain 6 feet apart, except during treatment. 

The current guidelines from the State and County require signage regarding hand washing, virus symptoms, mask wearing, etc. These will be placed all over. 

Scheduling will be back to the normal 30 minute treatment blocks.

Please note that the Loveland office is permanently closed. 

What you can expect from me are as follows:

  1. Checklists are being adhered to for cleaning schedules. Complete safety can never be guaranteed but I will be following the State mandated “Best Practice Guidelines”. These include checklists that cover documentation of when sheets and pillow cases are changed, disinfection is done on all listed items, temperatures taken, etc.
  2. I will adhere to the social distancing when not directly treating you.
  3. I will be wearing a mask and sometimes a face shield, if necessary
  4. I will be wearing scrubs or a lab coat that I will launder regularly. I will have a change of clothes to go home from work in.
  5. I will wear gloves for awhile.
  6. I will sanitize and disinfect all areas of use after each patient and at the end of the day.
  7. Each patients table , face cradle and pillow are vinyl. After the sheets, face cradle covers and pillowcases are removed, they will be sanitized. 
  8. I will do what needs to be done with the clinic (ie. temporarily shut down, inform my patients, etc) if I have exhibit any symptoms. 
  9. I will check my temperature each day
  10. I will adhere to the County and State mandates for Elective Medical Services

Before your appointment, one day prior, I will be calling to screen you with the required “Health/Symptom questionnaire”. At this time we will discuss the reasons for your appointment and I will collect payment per a Square Invoice or over the phone(unless prepaid on a membership) at that time. 

Upon arrival at your appointment the following steps will be taken:

Please text me when you arrive. I will let you know when I am ready for you to come in and I will most likely meet you at the door. Waiting room is closed for now. Fortunately, most of the tenants in my building are not able to go back to work yet. So the building will be at low occupancy. 

  1. A mask must be worn upon entering into the building. 
  2. Wash hands or use hand sanitizer when arriving immediately
  3. Temperature will be taken and charted
  4. The same “Health/Symptom Questionnaire” will need to be filled out verbally again.
  5. You will possibly need to touch the front door. I will leave a tissue box outside for you to use to open it and a trash can on the other side to throw out. 
  6. The secondary door will be open.
  7. Current patients will go straight back to the treatment room. Please use body to open door and let it shut on it’s own. It will shut – it is just slow. 
  8. Once in the treatment room you will see 2 tables and NO CURTAINS/DIVIDERS. These are PRIVATE treatments now. If there are sheets on either table – IT MEANS IT IS CLEAN. If it is NOT covered – it is being sanitized. Once the day begins, I will be sanitizing one table while the other is in use for a treatment.  This will enable me to keep the flow going. ONLY ONE PERSON IN THE ROOM AT A TIME.
  9. Both tables will be sterilized after each use and the use of disposable or washable covers for the face cradle will be used. I plan to do face down treatments.  Please do what you feel comfortable with. I am sanitizing it all and putting something disposable or washable on the floor under the face cradle. 
  10. There will be hand sanitizer, tissues and trash cans with lids for your use. The laundry will be kept in a container with a lid. 
  11. My consultation office will only be used for NEW patients. If necessary to use my office, the sofa and desk are situated 6 feet apart. 

DO NOT COME IN IF SICK! This includes: cough, fever, chills, body aches, sore throat, gastrointestinal issues, loss of taste or smell and if you have been around any known COVID cases in the last 14 days. I know allergy season is upon us. Please just be self-aware of your body and if you have any questions, ask me. 

NO CANCELLATION FEE WILL BE CHARGED AT THIS TIME FOR LATE CANCELS.
