Update on COVID-19 (coronavirus) for Our Patients

We are prepared and taking the appropriate measures as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the protection and safety of our patients and staff.

Important:

  • If you’ve traveled overseas, you must stay home for 14 days after returning from travel, monitor your health, and practice social distancing.

  • Anyone that is sick with a fever, cough, or has trouble breathing should stay home and call their primary care physician.

  • If you think you have been exposed to COVID‑19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.

  • To help practice 6 feet of social distancing, we have reduced our schedule to just one patient per hour

  • As of April 3, 2020, the CDC has recommended people to start wearing face masks when leaving the house. We will be providing facemasks for patients to use while in the clinic.

 

The team at Parmenter Physical Therapy is aware of the seriousness of the Coronavirus and the concerns it must be causing you. We want you to know that as of Monday March 16th we will remain open for business.

We certainly follow the advice of the governing authorities and ask that those of you over the age of 65 with other risk factors, such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, cancer or other illnesses that compromise your immune system, consider pausing treatment and stay home to do all you can to protect your future health. We also request that you cancel your appointments if you feel ill, have a fever or cough. We promise as a team not to come in to work if we feel any of these symptoms out of respect for your health.

We have cleaned our equipment, door knobs and bathroom keys thoroughly and will continue to do so throughout each day. As is our custom, we will continue to clean each table and change linens after each patient use. We want to assure you that we plan to follow guidelines of limiting physical touch and proximity and washing hands before and after treatment to ensure you feel comfortable coming in for your scheduled treatments.

Due to rising anxiety from so much social media and news, we have attached a fact sheet from the CDC to help you be informed about the basic facts and feel confident about your safety and decision making over the coming weeks.
