Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with your health and safety in mind, we have implemented COVID-19 protocols in our clinics as this is our top priority. We have taken many steps to ensure our clinics are safe for our patients, staff, and community members.
Below are the protocols we have put in place to keep everyone safe. We hope that you will be able to make a clear decision on continuing your plan of care during this time.
Sanitation Protocols: All staff are to engage in regular hand washing and disinfecting of our equipment and supplies. While this is an activity we already enforce, we have increased our frequency and reinforcement.
While attending appointments, we ask that patients limit the number of accompanying guests unless necessary for transportation or assistance. During this time, we are also asking our patients to reschedule their appointments if they are showing the following symptoms:
- Sore Throat
Per the most recent Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Missouri Department of Health and Environment (MDHE) Guidelines, we are also asking patients to refrain from their appointments if they have:
- Traveled to a state with known widespread community transmission (currently California, New York and Washington state) on or after March 15
- Visited Eagle, Summit, Pitkin and Gunnison counties in Colorado within the past week
- Traveled on a cruise ship on or after March 15
- Traveled internationally on or after March 15
- Received notification from public health officials (state or local) that you are a close contact of a laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19. You should quarantine at home for 14 days since your last contact with the case. (A close contact is defined as someone who has been closer than 6 feet for more than 10 minutes while the patient is symptomatic.)
Our staff and patients will also be screened for the above symptoms/situations before each workday/appointment.
As your trusted health care provider, it is our top priority to ensure you can continue receiving care within our clinics with confidence in our precautionary measures set in place by all APT/PPT clinics. We will continue to monitor the Center for Disease Control (CDC), local, state, and federal health officials as the situation continues.
Thank you for your support during these unsettling times. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
