On Friday, November 20, 2020, Governor Polis implemented a Public Health Order (PHO) and modified the Colorado COVID-Dial by adding a new level 2 category of RED. The Colorado COVID-Dial provides the regulations under which businesses operate based upon the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following this Colorado PHO, PTIS and HDPT will REMAIN OPEN and continue with the stringent safety guidelines we have been performing.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.
Due to ongoing concerns about the novel Coronavirus, we will be screening both patients and staff for symptoms, such as:
– Fever over 100 degrees
– Coughing, sneezing, or shortness of breath
– Headaches, altered taste, fatigue, or sore throat
– Recent diagnosis of Covid-19 or contact with someone who has been diagnosed with the virus
Common sense will rule the day for the safety of everyone- if you do not feel well or are uncomfortable going to see your physical therapist, we will still be here when you feel better!
Additionally, presentation at our office will look different; if you are scheduled in the coming weeks, we will give you more information via email prior to your appointment. However, every patient will have their temperature taken and be encouraged to wait in their car if there are multiple people in the waiting room already. We ask that you come alone to your appointment, if possible, and maintain social distance of 6 feet with other patient at all times.
You will see our friendly front office smiling at you… from behind masks! We ask that you do the same. As masks are in critically short supply, please bring your own.
We appreciate your continued loyalty and are excited to be plugged back in to playing an integral part of this community that we love and missed so much. Thank you ahead of time for your patience and understanding as we learn what physical therapy will look like in the near future!
Your PTIS and HDPT Family
