The CORE Chiropractic COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Policy – Updated June 21, 2021
Chiropractic has been deemed an essential business because pain does not stop during a pandemic. Even more importantly, by offering an alternative to an emergency room visit, we are keeping hospitals clear and our patients away from exposure to sick patients.
Unfortunately, maintaining social distancing between doctor and patient is particularly challenging with chiropractic care. We have implemented the following procedures and our office building also has additional safety precautions in place.
For our employees:
All employees have been instructed to not come to work should they feel sick, fever, or if a member of their household is expressing symptoms.
All employees are sanitizing their hands before starting work and between patients. Computers are being sanitized if an employee changes work stations.
All employees, including our doctors, are wearing masks at their option. Doctors will wear a mask if the patient requests that they do so.
For our patients:
Masks are now optional for our patients during their visits. Masks will not be required in the private treatment rooms. Masks are available at the front desk and will be provided if you do not have one. Your doctor may or may not be wearing a mask, but will wear a mask if you request that they do so.
We ask that our patients do not bring any unnecessary guests to their visit.
Hand sanitizer is provided in the treatment rooms and at multiple locations around our office for patient use.
Patients are asked not to come in for their appointments should they feel sick, have fever, are expressing COVID symptoms, or have been exposed to someone that has any of these symptoms.
In our building:
Masks are not required in the building.
Hand sanitizer is available in the lobby.
