Office Safety Precautions in Effect

During the Pandemic

I am taking the following precautions to protect my clients and help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

 

Permanent Office Precautions:

  • I keep a window or exterior door open during sessions. I have a HEPA air filter in my office and also open my window to allow for fresh air even during the colder seasons.

  • My waiting area seating is located in a ventilated, but enclosed non-climate controlled porch and is arranged for appropriate physical distancing.  Please do not move any furniture.

  • My waiting area and at times an outdoor enclosed shelter are available meeting spaces with more ventilation.

  • I require all clients to wear masks indoors until we sit down with safe distance.  

  • I maintain safe distancing when not wearing a mask outdoors.

  • The office restroom is cleaned according to state regulations and cleaning products are accessible after every use. It is used by other offices.

  • Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol is available in the waiting area and inside the office and encourge all clients to apply before and after sessions.  

  • I schedule appointments at specific intervals to minimize the number of people in the waiting area.

  • I ask all clients to wait in their cars or porch until no earlier than 10 minutes before their appointment times.

  • Copays will need to be through the 3rd part merchant integrated in my client portal health record system.  Please plan accordingly. I will not accept cash or checks until further notice.
