Keeping our staff and our patients safe
By Jane Gregorie - May 7, 2020
In response to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 we are implementing strict infection control protocols to avoid any possible spread of the virus. We are also reducing on-site staff and patient numbers to reduce in person contact at the clinicWhile we are doing this to prevent any possible contamination, it is also important to us that you feel comfortable and relaxed knowing that you are in a safe space. Please feel free to ask us if you have any concerns or questions.Â
IF ANYONE IS SYMPTOMATICÂ
- If any of our staff (or any of our family members) are exhibiting anyÂ symptoms of COVID-19, they will be instructed to stay home and refer to the CDPHE Symptom Tracker for additional guidance. None of our staff, our family members, nor any of our clients have tested positive for the virus.
- If one of our patients (or, one of their family members) is sick or exhibiting symptoms, we are asking that they stay home until they can definitively rule out the virus.Â
- We are screening all staff and patients for fever upon entry into the office (beginning May 8)
