Addressing COVID-19 Concerns
We are fortunate that there are still not many cases of the virus near us in Washago and outlying areas. Let’s try and keep it that way!
What Are We Doing To Help Stop The Spread Of The Virus?
The most effective thing we can all do is wash our hands and keep our hands away from our faces.
As always, tables are fully disinfected between clients.
As always, proper hand-washing protocols are in place.
As always, all equipment is being wiped down with disinfectant cleaners between uses.
Alcohol based sanitizers are readily available throughout the clinic.
All persons within the clinic are wearing masks and your therapist may also wear more protective equipment.
The ‘tap’ option is available for payment and we are cleaning devices between each use and having each client clean their hands before entering the clinic and before touching any devices.
Our staff is diligently wiping down frequently touched areas of the clinic, such as door handles, desk tops, devices and equipment several times a day.
There are signs on the door and we are informing all clients to call the clinic and reschedule if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of being unwell. With information provided to us by government health agencies and our professional associations, we know what to look for in terms of symptoms and what actions to take in these cases in accordance with emergency preparedness plans.
If any staff are unwell, they are asked to stay home and to contact their doctor or public health unit.
We are asking all individuals who have travelled outside of the country in the last 20 days to not attend.
We have implemented a communication strategy to ensure everyone is reminded to take proper precautions themselves.
We continue to communicate with staff and clients as new information becomes available or as new requirements become necessary.
We continue to monitor our Public Health Agencies to determine the safest course of action for everyone who enters our clinic, staff included. We want to do everything in our power to protect everyone from possible infection. This situation continues to evolve quickly and we will continue to monitor it closely. We will keep you advised of any changes. Based on current standards, we are OPEN and committed to your health.
Please feel free to call the clinic if you have any other questions or concerns.
