Essential Healthcare Service Statement
As we continue to move forward in the ever-changing environment around COVID-19, the safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. New information surrounding the changing landscape of our everyday routines has many feeling concerned.
As we navigate this situation, Compass is relying on guidance from national and local chiropractic associations and healthcare organizations to direct our actions. Many, including the International Chiropractors Association, view chiropractic care as an essential healthcare service that can be used by patients with a wide array of health conditions.
As a result, Compass is open, and we remain committed to providing chiropractic care in our local community. We know that many will continue to have healthcare needs that can be helped through chiropractic care, and we feel a responsibility and commitment to our patients.
We are closely monitoring recommendations and protocols established by the White House, the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health departments. We pledge to communicate if our position needs to be modified as the COVID-19 circumstances develop.
We honor our President and our government, both nationally and locally. In response, we have limited the number of people in the office to 10 or fewer at any one time, implemented increased hygiene routines (hand washing), monitoring (visual inspections) and operations protocols (washing tables and hands after each patient) and are following clinic procedures outlined by healthcare organizations and leading authorities within the chiropractic profession.
We recommend patients follow guidelines issued by the CDC, and if you are feeling unwell, please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.
To date, routine hygienic measures are the suggested best practice for prevention of viruses like the coronavirus.
