CLINIC UPDATE 🗣 OPEN MAY 4!
In accordance with Governor Northam’s recent update, we are excited to announce we will be OPEN for in-patient appointments May 4th.
The health and safety of our patients and staff remains our FIRST priority. In addition to @cdcgov, state and local guidelines, we are implementing the following procedures:
* All staff and patients will be required to wear a mask. A limited quantity of high-grade masks will be available for purchase if patients arrive without one.
* Plexiglass screens will be installed at each therapist workstation.
* Clinic hours will be modified to allow for additional cleaning.
* Patients will be staggered to allow for social distancing and screened with questions pertaining to fever and exposure to COVID-19.
We will also continue to offer TELEHEALTH appointments for the foreseeable future.
We hope these additional safety procedures will alleviate any concerns you may have.🙌😷#patientsafety #openforbusiness #wemissyou #novahandtherapy

We want to provide the ADDITIONAL safety steps we are taking for our patients and staff:
All clinic staff will have their temperature taken prior to starting work. Anyone with a temperature of 100.3 or higher will be sent home. We ask that patients also check their temperature and if 100.3 or higher, please reschedule.
Our waiting room will be limited to ESSENTIAL patients, family and friends. Children (non-patients) will not be permitted to enter the clinic until further notice. We have removed our waiting room chairs to allow for appropriate social distancing and limited opportunities to congregate.
All clinic equipment, surfaces and high touch areas are disinfected after each patient. We are temporarily discontinuing the treatment modalities of rice, paraffin, therapy putty and sponges (except for those that purchase their own in the clinic).
All patients and staff must abide by our “Wash Your Hands” protocol which involves washing for 20 seconds before treatment. Medical gloves are available upon request.
We ask that patients arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before their appointment time.
Please reschedule your appointment if you fall into any of these categories:
Exhibit symptoms or feel ill
Direct contact with someone who feels ill.
Have recently returned from international travel.
In the event a staff member or patient notifies us they have tested positive for COVID-19, we will follow @cdcgov guidelines and Virginia Department of Health and notify our clientele in the event we need to close for 14 days.
Thank you for your support! Stay healthy and we will get through this together!🤝🦠#update #patientsafety #stayhealthy #novahandtherapy
