In Office Policies and Procedures for COVID 19:
We appreciate your continued understanding and support as our office implements new policies and procedures in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please note that we are continuing to follow our established guidelines for the health and safety of our practitioners and our clients, including:
Requiring masks to be worn in the office
Requiring that clients sanitize their hands before entering the building
Moving office furniture to ensure that clients and providers are six feet apart
Sanitizing offices and door handles after meeting with clients
Asking the clients refrain from meeting in person at the office if they are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if they have experienced a fever within the last 21 days
At this time, we are now allowing clients to wait in our waiting area prior to their scheduled appointment time, rather than asking them to wait in their vehicles or outside the building. We do ask that you enter the building as close to the scheduled time of your appointment as possible, and to avoid being in the waiting area more than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time whenever possible.
If you choose to wait in the waiting area, we ask that you practice social distancing. If you do not feel comfortable waiting in the waiting area at this time, we understand as well, and would encourage you to come in at the scheduled time of your appointment to minimize time spent within the waiting area.
We will be regularly sanitizing the waiting area throughout the day to keep our office as clean and safe as possible.
As before, we must note that, if you do choose to attend in person sessions at the office and wait in our waiting area, you do assume the potential risk of contracting COVID-19 despite our safety protocols.
We understand the many differing beliefs and feelings regarding new protocols at this time and we appreciate your ongoing cooperation as we navigate remaining open as safely as possible. We are doing our best to create a safe, clean space for everyone.
Although we do plan to utilize telehealth services for the foreseeable future, we do encourage everyone who is attending telehealth sessions to reach out to their insurance companies to determine their telehealth coverage. As the public health crisis continues, many commercial insurance companies are continuing to update their coverage for telehealth services, and all clients are responsible for knowing their current benefits.
Thank you for supporting MWR.
