All patients will be screened for symptoms and exposure related to COVID-19 both at the time of scheduling and upon arrival.
Masks are required at all times when inside the clinic, even when laying on the treatment table. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one for you, but we ask you to try to bring your own. It is easier to provide treatment when the mask attaches around the ears or ties behind the head with two points, rather than bandanas or buffs.
Everyone who enters the office will have their temperature checked upon arrival. Any person(s) with a temperature at or above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will be re-scheduled. Please check in with the front desk before using the restroom.
Our waiting room is currently open. We still ask that you arrive as close to your appointment time as possible to allow for social distancing and less time spent in the office.
New patient Registration and Acupuncture Intake forms can be completed online. Health Updates, New Injury and Re-Evaluation forms will be sent via text message with your appointment reminder.
Get tested 5-7 days after close contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
Wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days after exposure or until a negative test result.
Isolate if test positive for COVID-19 in the prior 10 days or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
Non vaccinated individuals:
If you have a known exposure with a COVID-19 positive person, the state recommends that you quarantine for 14 days regardless of symptoms or test results. We will reschedule patients who have not waited the full 14 days after exposure.
If you have contact with an symptomatic individual, we ask that you get tested, isolate from the symptomatic individual, and re-schedule 10 days from your last day of exposure.
If you test positive or have symptoms yourself, we will reschedule you 10-14+ days after the first onset of symptoms AND 3-5 days after the last date of symptoms.
We know this is a challenging time for everyone and we appreciate your support and understanding. We hope that you remain safe and healthy.
