VMW COVID-19 PROCEDURES

All Therapists will:

  • Thoroughly wash hands between clients
  • Wipe down their room doorknob between each client using sanitizing solution
  • When turning over a table, all used sheets and towels will go directly into the laundry room
  • When massaging clients, we will avoid touching their faces
  • Wipe down their iPad screen after each shift using screen wipes

Front Desk Team will:

  • Ask all clients to use hand sanitizer before heading back for their massage
  • Clean all non-massage doorknobs throughout the day, both inside and outside the building
  • Wipe down iPad screens after clients use them to complete intake forms
  • Suspend the use of the iPad for checkout
  • Run laundry in a timely manner to not leave it sitting out
  • Clean surfaces throughout the building throughout the day (toilet handles, faucets, etc)

Per CDC Guidelines:

  • If you are sick:? You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider?s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.?Learn what to do if you are sick.
  • If you are NOT sick:?You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

This is a fluid situation that requires daily assessment.? As of 3/14/20 we plan to remain open.? Considering the volume of visiter we experience, the lack of crowding in our workplace, as well as our ability to maintain procedures that keep our space clean, we believe we are able to maintain operations while keeping employees and clients safe.? As COVID progresses in our local community we will continue to re-assess and will be prepared to suspend operations.

Fortunately Patrick work as a manager for the second largest healthcare providers in the US.? He is receiving daily updates and meeting regularly with his organizations Associate Medical Director of Quality and Chief of Infectious Disease.? Patrick is deeply involved in all updates that are going out to healthcare providers and will continue to advice on VMW policies, procedures and response plan.

Cara & Patrick will be sending messages to all clients about what VMW is doing to keep clients and employees safe.? We will also make clear that those experiencing symptoms or who believe to have been exposed to COVID should cancel their appointments.? Furthermore we will be adding information in the emails sent to clients from Vagaro.? Copies will be posted to the internal employee COVID site as well.

Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface. Follow manufacturer?s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.

  • Prepare a bleach solution by mixing:
    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd?cup) bleach per gallon of water or
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
  • Employees who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness and/or a fever (100.4? F [37.8? C] or greater using an oral thermometer), signs of a fever, and any other cold or flu like symptoms shall contact Cara and not come to work.
  • Employees who believe to have been exposed to COVID-19 will contact Cara and not come to work.
  • Employees who self-select to remain home and not come to work should also contact Cara and we ask for a 24-hour notice if clients are on your books.
