COVID-19 Information For Our Patients: As medical professionals we try to follow the correct information from the right resources so we can pass on this knowledge and answer questions with facts vs misinformation so that it doesn’t lead to fear. We want to ensure that you can take the proper precautions to safeguard your health and the well-being of our community.
A few things that we will be implementing at our clinic:
If you have a fever or feel ill please stay at home!
If you have been traveling please keep in mind that you can be asymptomatic for a few days before actually showing signs of illness.
When patients enter the clinic they should sanitize/wash their hands.
We encourage everyone to maintain at least 6 feet apart. So choose a seat that isn’t right next to someone else. We will do our best to schedule things that way.
We will be changing sheets after each patient.
All surfaces are being wiped down with clorox wipes throughout the day.
Essential oils that kill viruses and clean the air will be diffused at the end of each shift.
Things you should keep in mind:
Make a plan for you and your family.
Get scripts filled, especially if you have any or are prone to respiratory issues.
Have supplements on hand to take if you start feeling sick.
Keep yourself at home to wait out the incubation period. That could be anywhere from 2-27 days.
If you get worse call your doctor or local health dept.
Wash hands up to 5x per day. This reduces chance of respiratory infections by 16-21%.
Eat seasonal whole foods, cut out sugar, exercise and get some sunshine!
We understand the concerns regarding the unknown and like many small business owners, we recognize how this can affect all of our lives. Let’s do the best we can to stay healthy and ride this thing out!
