To all of our wonderful patients:
Over the past week, our staff at Elements Physical Therapy have had multiple meetings and discussions surrounding the news on COVID-19. All things considered; we believe that the most responsible decision in this situation is to close our facility, starting today, with the intention of re-opening in a couple of weeks. Please consider any future appts you have booked in the next few weeks to be canceled. The health, safety, and well-being of our patients and staff are of critical importance in everything we do. We will continue to monitor the situation and be sure to inform you all if we plan to re-open sooner.
With the daily news surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we know that you may have questions about how we can all do our part to keep our community healthy.
While we are still learning more about the virus, here is some advice from the World Health Organizations website:
· Wash your hands frequently. Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
· Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
· Maintain social distancing. Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
· Why? When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person has the disease.
