Regarding the Coronavirus/COVID-19
Dear Patients and Members of the Community,
We are all familiar with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and how it has begun to impact our community. We feel at Langford & Karls Chiropractic Clinic and Village Acupuncture and Massage Therapy that it is important to connect with you to share what additional measures we are taking at our clinic to help keep you, our employees, our patients, and our community safe and healthy.
We feel for those who have been affected. The health and safety of our employees, patients, and visitors to our facility is our top priority. This is a rapidly-changing scenario that we are continuously monitoring, and while we continue to perform proper hand hygiene in accordance with CDC and OSHA guidelines, we are also adding more frequent disinfecting practices and hygienic measures to the already-rigorous infection control procedures of our daily operations.
We see many immunocompromised, elderly, and pediatric patients in this facility. We ask that you keep their health and safety in mind when considering the following requests. Please wash your hands before coming to our clinic, and use hand sanitizer when you enter the building. There is pump at the front desk for your convenience. Please let us know if you feel sick or have traveled out of the country. If you have a fever and other flu-like symptoms, please call ahead so that we may reschedule your appointment for a later date—we are happy to accommodate this need. If you have traveled to any epicenters of the epidemic or have been on a cruise, we ask that you wait 14 viral symptom-free days before coming for an appointment. Again, this is to protect the numerous vulnerable populations that we serve in this clinic, and we thank you for your compliance.
All of these practices and care decisions are based on the CDC, WHO, OSHA, and ACA recommendations along with guidance from local US government and public health agencies. The health and well-being of you and your family, and of our clinic family, is our top priority here at Langford & Karls Chiropractic Clinic and Village Acupuncture and Massage Therapy.
Thank you for being our patient. We hope to see you in the office soon.
