CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION & PRE-APPOINTMENT SCREENING QUESTIONS »

Open for All In-Person and Telehealth Sessions

Illness Prevention March 2020

To Our Patients,

Like you, we are closely watching the coronavirus pandemic, and want to share important information about the steps we are taking to protect both our patients and our staff.

At Focus Physical Therapy, our patients’ health and safety guides everything we do. Our offices maintain the highest standard of infection control and sterilization of surfaces and equipment between patients and throughout the day. We use cleaning agents that specifically address viral pathogens, including the COVID-19 virus.

We remain open and ready to serve. We’re asking our patients to help us fight the spread of this outbreak, as well as other flu-like diseases, by doing the following:

  • Please call us to reschedule your appointment if you have a fever, if you are coughing, or if you just are not feeling well or if you have a child who stayed home from school due to illness, fever or shortness of breath. There is no penalty for last-minute cancellations during this time.
  • If any of our staff is not feeling well or have ill family members, they will stay home. In that case, we ask for your patience in case we need to reschedule your appointments.
  • When you enter our office, please wash your hands in the restroom or use the hand sanitizer provided. Please remember to wash with soap for at least 20 seconds, scrubbing the fronts, backs, fingertips and thumbs.
  • It’s a good idea to carry tissues and hand sanitizer with you, to use  throughout the day as you open doors or sign for purchases, etc. If you happen to sneeze, use a tissue and disinfect your hands afterwards. To be effective, hand sanitizer must be at least 70% alcohol.

We’ll continue to monitor the spread of this outbreak and adjust our policies if needed. You can learn more about COVID-19 on the cdc.gov website, including how the virus spreads, the symptoms of infection, and what to do if you feel ill.

Please feel free to contact us at the office with any questions or concerns by calling 541-385-3344 (option 1 for Eastside, option 2 for Old Mill).

Sincerely,
Burke Selbst PT
Owner of Focus Physical Therapy
