We know everyone has been concerned about all the news regarding COVID-19 or Coronavirus. Our clinics are still open and treating patients. We are doing our best to minimize patient and staff risk for exposure to COVID-19 as well as all other viruses. We continue to maintain a clean clinic through vigilant cleaning of all surfaces, frequent hand washing, and screening those coming through our door in order to minimize risk for exposure. We are still currently treating patients and have available appointments.
Actions Being Taken by First Colony Aquatic & Rehabilitation Center:
- At this time, there are no known cases of the virus in our clinics. The health and safety of our employees and patients is always our top priority. We are diligently monitoring updates to the COVID-19.
- We understand how important it is to continue your physical therapy treatment from initial evaluation to discharge without interruption. Stopping therapy mid-way can result in slower recovery and possibly starting therapy over to achieve your goals. Therapy staff are ensuring all patients have access to home exercise programs.
- Our staff are working to ensure everyone is following consistent protocols for proper hand-washing as well as sanitizing and disinfecting equipment, treatment tables, waiting areas, bathrooms, doorknobs and other general areas.
What you can do:
- We ask that you please allow our staff to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing any of the following: fever, cough, shortness of breath, or exposure to someone with the virus.
- If you have not been contacted by us about your home exercise program or feel you need an updated program, call the appropriate clinic and request one from your care team.
- Appointments are currently available from 8 am through 7 pm, but please consider scheduling therapy through the month of April as we anticipate there will be a need to plan ahead once we get past this high-risk time period.
- Continue your daily activities with the same healthy habits that prevent the spread of the viruses.
- Wash your hands.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Avoid group settings of 10 people or more.
- Use “social distancing” of about 6 feet from the nearest person.
- Cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm to prevent spreading germs.
