PHYSICAL THERAPY IS OPEN: Response to being open during Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Our Physical Therapy Department has reopened as of Wednesday, March 25th. FitLife Physical Therapy is considered a life-sustaining business under the Governor's current Order. As part of the guidance for this Order, it is advised that it is allowable for individuals to leave their residence to complete tasks essential to maintaining their health and safety, or the health and safety of their family or household member, such as visiting a health care professional, such as our physical therapists.
We have taken measures to thoroughly clean and disinfect the facility during our recent closure, and we are committed to maintaining a high level of standards for daily processes and procedures related to ensuring our space is safe and clean for our patients and staff. FitLife team members will be wearing masks and gloves while they are in the facility and will be disinfecting all equipment after each patient and mulitiple times throughout the day.
Our hours of operation will be adjusted during this time:
Monday - Thursday 8:00am-6:00pm
Prior to patient appointments staff members will be prescreened for symptoms of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) by phone. When patients arrive for appointments, they must enter through the main facility entrance from the parking lot. There will be strict guidelines displayed in the lobby as a self-guided screening for patients to follow before making their way downstairs to the physical therapy department. Patients can expect to mandatorily answer 5 screening questions:
1. Have you traveled outside of the U.S. in the last 30 days?
2. Do you have a fever?
3. Do you have a cough?
4. Are you experiencing shortness of breath?
5. Have you been directly exposed to anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19?
If one answers "yes" to any of these questions, they will not be permitted to proceed and must leave. If one answers "no" to every question, the patient will be directed to wash and sanitize their hands, and put on a pair of gloves before proceeding to check in for their physical therapy appointment.
