To Our Patients:
In light of what the World Health Organization is calling a pandemic, COVID-19, I wanted to take a moment to assure our community that all possible measures are being taken at our clinic to protect your health.
As with any healthcare environment, our staff takes great care in disinfecting treatment and massage rooms between patients, washing hands frequently, staying home when they feel ill, and of course — eating well, taking their supplements, and receiving regular adjustments to maintain an optimally functional immune system.
As a healthcare provider, I believe in information and evidence based science vs fear mongering. The CDC maintains: “For the majority of people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. There is not widespread circulation in most communities in the United States.” I also recognize that anxiety around evolving health issues is a concern that warrants our attention and respect. So, out of an abundance of caution: if you are uncomfortable keeping your appointments for fear of contracting Coronavirus please do what you think is best for your family. We kindly ask for as much notice as possible.
I would urge you to stay informed from reliable and credible sources; at the moment, the WHO is recommending people avoid areas of high population and mass crowds. Our clinic would not qualify as that. Staying adjusted will help keep your immune system working at its peak to fight off infections and keep you healthy.
I am posting this helpful infographic to demonstrate the differences in symptoms between a common cold, the flu, and symptoms of COVID-19. If you think you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please contact your primary care physician. Do not travel or expose yourself to the general public. Please conduct a virtual or phone check-up and let the physician decide if you need to come in to a hospital for testing.
At this time, we have no plans to limit hours, or close for any period of time, further than our reduced hours once Baby J arrives. We will keep you all updated if this changes.
As always, we are here for you; if you have questions please feel free to reach out.
Stay informed, wash your hands, & be well —
