COVID-19 Clinic Policies
Revised Office Protocols
All staff and patients will wear protective masks while they are inside either clinic location.
Only one practitioner will work at a time in order to decrease the amount of people in our office and allow us to enforce social distancing between patients. This means that your practitioner’s hours may have decreased or changed from their normal times but we promise to make every effort to ensure continuity of care, even if you need to see a different practitioner.
All patients will be screened at the door for symptoms before entering the clinic. This screening process will include taking your temp and asking the following questions:
- Have you had a fever in the past 24 hours?
- Have you been in contact with anyone diagnosed with Covid-10 in the past 14 days?
- Have you traveled to areas that may have exposed you to Covid-19 over the past 14 days?
- Do you have any respiratory symptoms or have had these symptoms over the last 7 days – cough, fever, sore throat, difficulty breathing or loss of taste or smell?
All patients will need to enter the clinic alone (friends or family members will need to wait in the car and are not allowed in the waiting room). We will show patients back to their room after they arrive to minimize congregating in the waiting area.
We will have multiple hand sanitizer stations set up around the office for you to use.
You will notice that we are using “sneeze barriers” at the reception desks and we now have contact-less check-out processes in place.
You will also notice that our clinic spaces are modified to accommodate social distancing including reduced seating in the waiting room, no magazines, disposable cups for water and other such changes.
Revised Staff Protocols
All staff will be screened daily with a CDC recommended questionnaire and a temperature check.
Practitioners will be seeing patients at staggered appointment times to minimize patient overlap and allow for sanitization protocols to be followed between patients.
It is an incredible opportunity to serve our community and we hope that our work can bring calmness to your anxiety and relief to your pain and suffering as we move forward into 2021. We are taking every precaution available to keep you safe and thank you for your patience and cooperation as we modify our office protocols to accomplish this. We promise that you will see the kindness in our eyes even if our masks hide the smile underneath.
In health and wellness,
Chris, Katherine and the entire staff at TAC
