Coronavirus Update

To Our Valued Patients

With our top priority being the health and safety of our patients and staff, we are closely monitoring the global and local impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and following the recommendations of our city, state, and federal agency.

On the continued recommendation of the Connecticut State Department of Health, there have been no major changes to our regular schedule or daily operation. We will continue to monitor this rapidly changing situation and work hard to keep our facility clean and comfortable for all. We encourage everyone to respect others by following appropriate health guidelines and ask that you assist us by taking some personal responsibility if you continue to visit us. We are taking the following precautions to protect our patients and staffs health:

  • Spraying Lysol disinfectant throughout the office at least 3 times per day.
  • Utilizing an air purifying system and humidifier that cleans the air of microbes.
  • Washing hands and or sanitizing after each patient.
  • Disinfecting the table after each patient.
  • Not using the neck traction unit or towel for neck axial traction (if you still want the procedure please bring your own towel).
  • Keep smiling we will get through this.

Below are recommended habits (common sense) on how to prevent the spread of infectious illnesses and proper etiquette to consider:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • If you have comorbidities (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, auto immune disease, respiratory issues Etc) or are a smoker then your risk is higher for severe symptoms. Stay home and limit your contact with others.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently all touched objects and surfaces including any equipment you use.
  • Support your immune system by getting some sunlight, stay active, drink plenty of water, get your rest, avoid sugar, eat plenty of onions and garlic and other immune supporting foods and supplement your diet with immune supporting herbs,vitamins and minerals. (do your research but if you have any questions call the office)
  • Please feel free to contact the office with any questions or concerns.
