We are constantly updating our policies to respond to best practices and new research. Please ask if anything you read below seems out of date.
1) All adjusting tables are back in the adjusting room and face pillows can be found next to the face paper. If you would like to be in the private exam room, please let us know when you schedule.
2) The Sign-In sheet is back and can be found at the front desk. Please print your name on the sheet before proceeding into the adjusting room.
3) We ask everyone to wear a mask when in the office.
4) If you would like to wipe down your table before or after use, disinfectant spray and paper towels are available in the adjusting room.
5) You may choose to wash your hands in the bathroom or use the hand sanitizer at the front desk upon entering the office.
6) The kids room is still available! Many of the stuffed animals and other soft toys have been removed.
7) If you have a fever, other symptoms or have tested positive for Covid, please refrain from entering the office. Meggie is happy to do a video session with you if you are symptomatic or have been exposed to anyone who has Covid.
If cases rise:
Last March Chiropractic First closed completely because the novel Coronavirus was novel. Meggie needed to learn best practices and figure out how to manage exposure. After over a year of reading and consulting with colleagues, Chiropractic First feels confident in our ability to mitigate the risks of covid.
We may reduce the number of people in the adjusting room.
We might go back to 1-on-1 adjusting.
We may have Meggie and Will working different hours so that there are fewer people in the office at any given time.
We may start offering more telehealth appointments.
Last spring we closed and slowly reopened. We moved through a lot of different phases of Covid risk management. We are prepared to change our policies to reflect the needs and demands of the current moment.
Chiropractic is health care. It is considered an essential service. If we completely close the office, it will be because we do not think we can keep our patients or our community safe. However, we have a whole lot of actions we can take before we consider that most drastic step.
Please be aware that there are people who are asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic. We are doing what we can to keep everyone healthy! But we cannot assure that there will not be patients in the practice who fall into those categories.
