Public Service Announcement Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
To all of our valued patients of Atlas Chiropractic Care and our local communities:
We would like to assure you that we are taking this pandemic seriously and are taking necessary precautions to keep our facility, patients and staff safe and clean in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have been working to protect you and your family when it comes to our office. We are consistently wiping down all rooms as well as commonly used surfaces, computers, phones, etc. and are constantly washing/sanitizing our own hands. There are Informational COVID-19 signs posted around the office and we have a COVID-19 symptom questionnaire for every person that enters the office for safety purposes.
***In an effort to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19, our office will be closed as of 1:30PM on Friday 3/20/2020. We will be rescheduling all NON-EMERGENCY chiropractic care patients starting on Monday 4/6/2020, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation.
If you are a current patient and believe you are experiencing a true chiropractic emergency during this uncertain time, please contact the office at 585-442-1500 and leave a message. Your call will be returned within 24 hours.
In the meantime, we also ask that you also help us in this endeavor to suppress the spread of COVID-19: ●If you have symptoms of a fever, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, or if you have had close contact to someone who has the COVID-19, we respectfully ask that you not come into our office for your appointment, but instead call your Primary Care Physician. ●We ask that you please wash/sanitize your hands before your scheduled appointment. ●In addition, if you have recently travelled to an area that has had an ongoing spread of COVID-19 in the past month, we ask that you postpone your visit to our office and call your Primary Care Physician for more information on precautions and next steps.
Below are a few important considerations we can all take to decrease the spread of this, and other viruses: ●Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing before eating any food and after using the restroom. ●Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw your tissue in the trash and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve but NOT your hands. ●Avoid exposure to the virus. Avoid large crowds – when in public, practice “social distancing” (i.e. 6 feet apart). ●Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. ●If you or a household member is showing symptoms of upper respiratory illness, stay home. Suppressing respiratory symptoms like coughs and runny nose with medicines does not mitigate the contagiousness of the condition. ●Suspend hand shaking, and physical contact greeting during the pandemic.
Our greatest concern is for the health and safety of our patients, staff and communities. If you find that you need to reschedule your appointment, please call 585-442-1500. We will gladly reschedule your appointment so that you have the appropriate time to recover.
Thank you for your understanding!
Dr. Natalie A. Dabrowny
