Total Body’s leadership team is actively monitoring the COVID19 situation. We recognize the unprecedented seriousness of COVID-19 and, to be clear, our sole concern is for your safety and the safety of our team members. As healthcare professionals, above all else, we must always be vigilant regarding public health.
We want to minimize any risks in our clinics while continuing to deliver great experiences to you, our patients, therefore, we will be taking extra precautions to protect our patients and staff.
Due to the unprecedented impact of the virus, we are making some adjustments as to how we handle appointments and procedures.
Please contact the office prior to your appointment for new information regarding arrival and departure instructions.
Our commitment has always been to provide a sterile environment for our patients. To further ensure we are delivering on that promise, we will implement and/or continue to employ the following measures over the coming days:
Viricidal disinfectants will continue to be used to clean all procedure rooms and door handles before and after every procedure or service.
-Our providers will continue to wash their hands before and after every procedure or service.
-Specific entrance areas and restrooms will be disinfected every hour.
-Our local clinic teams will reserve the right to refuse service to any patients who are actively experiencing cold or flu symptoms. Cancellation fees will be waived.
-Any Total Body team members with active cold or flu symptoms will not to come to work.
Additionally, we would like to offer 10 universal precautions that should be employed to reduce viral spread:
-No handshaking and avoid crowds.
-Use your elbow or knuckle to press elevator buttons, light switches, etc.
-Open doors with a closed fist or hip if possible.
-Wash your hands regularly for a minimum 20 seconds and use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
-Do not cough or sneeze into your hand. Use disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow if you have to.
-Vitamin C, D3, and Zinc supplements have been shown to boost immunity.
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
-Practice other good health habits. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
-If you are sick – stay home.
In the face of these challenges, it is imperative that we all work together to promote safety while still enjoying our lives.
