Covid Updates

Procedures at OCC (*last updated 11/1/20)

I am honored to be your chiropractor!  I am happy to treat you during this time, but some changes and precautions are necessary. We can manage this and continue to do good for ourselves and each other. Please read on to know what has changed and what to expect.
  • Do not come in if any of the following apply currently or within the last 14 days.  Simply let me know.  No fees will apply for such cancellations and I will be happy to reschedule with you. 
    • You or anyone in your household has been ill, had a fever, or lost smell or taste sense.
    • You have had contact with anyone who has a confirmed or suspected Covid 19 infection, even if you have no symptoms.

  • If you have access to a thermometer at home, please take your temperature right before coming and let me know the result to document.  I will also have a touch-less thermometer to screen temperatures in the office.

  • Please wear a face mask or covering if you are able.  I will do the same.

  • Please wait in your car or, weather permitting, outside until the time of your appointment.  It is really ok to come on in, especially if it is raining sideways, we just want to do our best to give each other space.  

  • I ask that you leave shoes and as many personal belongings as possible in the waiting area.  There will be space on the bottom shelf of the tea cart, as well as the coat rack.  This will increase the ease and thoroughness of disinfecting the treatment area.

  • When you come in to the treatment area, please wash your hands.  

  • In the treatment area, please sit down on the chiropractic table only to minimize the number of surfaces contacted.

  • I will be wiping down all surfaces in the treatment area with disinfectant, washing my hands thoroughly between patients and increasing ventilation and whole office cleaning daily.

  • I have a HEPA/UV air filter flowing for additional protection.

  • We can otherwise work pretty much as normal!  I am currently not doing jaw work or any other intraoral or nasal procedures (anything that involves gloves or contact with body fluids).  But adjustments, muscle work, all the rest are fine! 

  • If you prefer to pay with cash or check, I will have an envelope available for you to place this in.  If you prefer to pay by credit card I will send you an email invoice which can be paid by CC online instead of handing cards in-office. 
I thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Yours in health,
Dr. Heidi
