COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Here is how we've been working to keep you safe

As acupuncturists, we have been considered essential care workers throughout the coronavirus pandemic.  During the initial virus outbreak, we did not feel we had sufficient knowledge or structured guidelines to keep our doors open as usual.   In order to open our doors back up, we felt we needed to make sure that we had enough information on how to best protect our patients and keep you safe while in clinic.  This means we are following strict guidelines directed by the CDC which we just didn't have in the early stages.  We also wanted to make sure we had proper PPE equipment without taking away from hospitals and staff that desperately needed it and were treating on the front lines.

What this looks like now that our clinic has reopened:

Our intake process now includes:

  • Each patient is required to fill out a Covid-19 questionaire to report on any symptoms before each visit

  • Patients will have the option of doing intakes via phone/zoom calls from your car, so less time is spent in the office (please let us know if this option is preferred prior to your scheduled appointment)

  • Snapshot of tongue image to be sent via text/email 5-10 mins prior to visit

  • If a patient is experiencing symptoms, we will schedule a telehealth appointment instead

 

In addition:

  • All patients will be will be required to wear masks

  • Temperature checks conducted before each treatment

  • Hand sanitizers at multiple stations

  • Disposable table and headrest covers

  • Medical grade disinfectants used to deep clean all high contact surfaces (This has been in place prior to Covid-19!)

  • Air purifiers in each treatment room

  • Far infrared UVC light will be used as an extra precaution after each treatment

  • Each room will have a 30 min break to sanitize and air out before the next person enters

 

We are taking this pandemic seriously and are doing all we can to keep you safe and healthy in our clinic. 

*THANK YOU for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon!
