I am currently working to gather the latest information and understand recommendations and requirements for the best practices regarding contact with patients in my office. While we have had no issues with exposure or spread of coronavirus in my office, we are proceeding with utmost caution for your safety and ours. Therefore, my office will remain closed temporarily to give me time to contact the California Chiropractic Board and local and state health authorities to find out the best way to proceed.
As you know, Governor Newsom, Mayor London Breed and the CDC are asking that people, especially those 65 and over, self-isolate at home at this time and avoid unnecessary travel, commuting and contact. Many businesses downtown are mandating that employees work from home. This is essential at this time to “flatten the curve” and prevent significant spread of the coronavirus and to not overwhelm our emergency services. We all have a duty to protect vulnerable individuals in our community. If we do this now, hopefully we can get back to normal sooner rather than later.
With that said, I also do not want to neglect the healthcare needs of patients. At this time, I will be doing phone consultations with patients to assess an individual’s current condition, offer instruction and advice for homecare, and potentially treat those in significant need or distress or possibly make house calls to those patients in need. In an abundance of caution, I will require that I and the patient will wash and disinfect hands and take temperatures prior to a treatment.
Please email or leave me a message with any questions or concerns because I will be regularly monitoring messages and returning calls.
