An Update from FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers - San Francisco
All of us here at FYZICAL – San Francisco hope that you and your family are well and have adjusted to social distancing and the shelter-in-place order for San Francisco and the neighboring Bay Area counties. Although we are certain that like all of us, you have received many notifications concerning COVID- 19, we wanted to let you know what we are doing to keep our patients and employees safe and also provide basic recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to emphasize their importance.
We understand that this is an uncertain time for everyone and that this is a rapidly evolving situation. And we are dedicated to the safety of our clinic. As part of the San Francisco health care network, our clinic will remain open until otherwise directed by the City and County of San Francisco; however, we are now offering online video appointments as described on our homepage.
We want to assure you that as part of our normal course of business we take the necessary daily precautions to ensure our clinic is cleaned and sanitized. In addition, we have increased frequency and taken heightened protections during this time. Your health and wellness are of the utmost importance to us here at FYZICAL – San Francisco. We want our patients to feel safe and comfortable so they can continue to improve their health and wellness through consistent treatments as outlined in their individual care plans.
We’re also ensuring our employees have the information they need to stay healthy or stay home if they aren’t feeling well. All of these practices and our business decisions are informed by guidance from the CDC and local health organizations/officials. Selected recommendations from the CDC that we encourage everyone to follow include:
- Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Avoiding touching the eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
- Staying home as much as possible
- Putting distance between yourself and other people (about six feet)
- Covering your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
- Covering the mouth and nose with the inside of the elbow when coughing or sneezing if you are not wearing a cloth face covering
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces
We here at FYZICAL wish you well and please stay safe,
Daniel L. James, PT
