An important message regarding COVID-19

Posted by Dr. Leonard J. Kielbasa, DC, CCSP, Cert. MDT, CFSC, FMSC

The safety, health and well-being of our patients, clients and staff has always been a top priority at our office and we wanted to take a moment to address concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and our office. As part of our focus on always providing the highest quality of care, it is common practice for us to follow strict protocols for the control of infectious disease as outlined by the PA department of health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Align Chiropractic Spine & Sports Rehab plans to remain open during our regularly scheduled hours to care for our patients and clients unless instructed otherwise by the state or federal government. However, during this time in order for us to be prepared and to hold our office to the highest standards possible, we will be implementing strict policies to protect our patients, clients and staff from the coronavirus (COVID-19). These policies will include:

Actively encouraging patients, clients and staff to stay home (if you have any of the following):

Symptoms of acute respiratory illness with fever are recommended to stay home and not come to the office until they are free of fever (100.4° F [37.8° C] or greater using an oral thermometer), signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. cough suppressants). Please stay home if you show any of these signs or symptoms and we will get your appointment rescheduled.

If you have traveled outside of the country in the last 14 days, especially if your travels have been to China, Iran, Italy, Japan or South Korea (You may return if you have not shown symptoms of Coronavirus – acute respiratory illness with fever within 14 days following your return to the United States or if you have been tested and your test was negative for COVID-19)

If you have come into direct contact with anyone known to have COVID-19, we ask that you wait 14 days prior to coming in, unless you have been tested for the coronavirus and have tested negative.

We ask that all patients, clients and staff maintain good hand and coughing (sneezing) hygiene while in our office

We will be providing hand sanitizer for use by all patients, clients and staff upon entering our office. We ask that you please take the opportunity upon entering our building and any other time that you may feel it necessary to clean and sanitize your hands while in the office

We have 3 sinks with soap and water (one in each of the bathrooms and one in the back of the building) that are available for use to wash your hands at any time while in the office.

Always do your best to cough/sneeze into your elbow while in the office and take the opportunity to sanitize or wash your hands ASAP should this occur

We will be performing routine cleaning and sanitization of our office, as we have done in the past

All the surfaces frequently touched (counter at front desk, bathrooms, training equipment, treatment tables, door handles, etc.) will be cleaned and sanitized on an ongoing basis throughout the day.

Should you have any additional questions, please contact our office at (717) 241-9355. On behalf of our team at Align Chiropractic Spine & Sports Rehab, I wish all of you and your families and loved ones well during this difficult time. Our hearts go out to anyone in our community affected by the virus. Thank you all for being loyal patients, clients and a part of our family at Align Chiropractic Spine & Sports Rehab. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kielbasa & Staff
