Dear Acupuncture Clients,
As of May 1st I am open to all acupuncture appointments.
If you are exhibiting any of the symptoms listed below, please monitor yourself and delay your acupuncture appointment. Seek medical attention immediately if you begin experiencing worsening symptoms, such as *trouble breathing *persistent pain or pressure in chest *new confusion or inability to arouse or *bluish lips or face
Before You Come In:
If you are showing signs or symptoms considered consistent with COVID-19 *fever *cough *sore throat *shortness of breath or difficulty breathing *chills *repeated shaking with chills *muscle pain *headache *new loss of taste or smell do not come to the clinic. If you are having breathing issues contact a physician immediately. Please reach out if I can assist you in seeking herbal or supplemental support to manage less severe and/or lingering symptoms.
If you are experiencing sudden diarrhea or digestive issues. More evidence is emerging that these symptoms can precede flu and lung symptoms in as many as 50% of cases.
If you have travelled internationally in the last 14 days you are by law required to self quarantine. Please do not attend the clinic
If you have had contact with someone who has been diagnosed with or is suspected of having COVID-19 do not attend the clinic and follow self quarantine directives.
I am taking steps to comply with social distancing requirements and state requirements .
We are managing social distancing measures by limiting the number of people in the clinic waiting area at a time.
Please do not arrive more than 5 min early for your appointment. If you arrive earlier, please wait in your car and call or text me to see if a room is ready. If someone else comes with you, they will have to stay in the treatment room or outside the clinic while they're waiting.
We ask all patients to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands on arrival. I wash my hands before entering and on leaving the treatment room (this was always being done).
You are now required to wear a mask (cloth/homemade is fine) while in the clinic common areas where 6ft distance may not be able to be maintained.
I will wear a mask while in the room, since 6ft social distancing is not possible during treatment.
We are maintaining strict hygiene and cleaning standards between patients and throughout the day. Rooms will be cleaned and aired out thoroughly between patients. We have HEPA air filters in the treatment rooms that will be running continuously. We use cleaners approved by the CDC to kill COVID 19. All laundry is removed and laundered between patients (this was always being done).
Although COVID-19 is certainly top of all of our minds it does not mean that other illness, injury or imbalances are no longer occurring. We are, and will be as long as possible, here to help
As things develop I will keep you informed. I look forward to continue to serve you to keep you healthy and well.
