As I am sure many of you have this past week, our Team at Performance in Motion (PIM) have been closely following the latest developments with the Covid-19 virus in our country and around the world. In an effort to do our part in reducing community exposure of this virus and protecting the health of our patients and team, we have decided to “first do no harm” and take the following measures effective Monday, March 16, 2020, and lasting for the next 14 days, ending March 29, 2020.
- Performance in Motion will no longer be offering Performance training services during this 14-day period. We are more than willing to offer online consultation sessions or assist with building independent programs if desired to keep you moving during this time. Please reach out to your primary Physical Therapist for details.
- We will continue to offer medically necessary Physical Therapy services at both of our locations. In addition to the precautionary measures listed in our previous blog, we will be taking the following additional precautionary measures to keep you protected:
- Appointments will be scheduled with a 15-minute break from one session to the next to allow for deep cleaning of all equipment involved, hand washing, and to reduce any unnecessary person-to-person contact within our clinics.
- In an effort to minimize the number of people in the facility, we ask that patients make every effort to discourage additional friends and family from attending their sessions. In the case of minors, parents are more than welcome to attend, but we do ask that they remain in the appropriate waiting areas.
We want to thank the Centers for Disease Control, the American Physical Therapy Association, and so many health care professionals who we have consulted with for their guidance during this uncertain season and encourage all of our patients and athletes to continue to stay informed at, www.coronavirus.gov, and do their part to minimize the spread of this contagious virus. We also encourage all of our “high risk” patients to be especially discerning and take extra measures to avoid exposure as well.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me or your primary Physical Therapist at Team PIM for any questions or concerns regarding these new measures. Also, we want to Thank You in advance for your patience an understanding if these measures inconvenience you in any way. Please know that we are doing this because we feel it is in the best interest of our patients, and the surrounding community, and truly do feel that “the risks of being too cautious may be less than the risks of not being cautious enough.” We look forward to keeping you ALL moving again very soon!
