Illness Policy and Screening: Stay Home if You Are Sick
When you arrive at the clinic we will take your temperature and ask you screening questions about potential symptoms and exposure to COVID-19. If you have had symptoms in the past 48 hours or a known exposure to COVID-19, it is not appropriate for you to receive acupuncture and you will be turned away.
Symptoms of illness include fever (of 99.5 degrees or higher), cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, diarrhea, headache, body aches and loss of taste or smell.
If someone in your household has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 please do not come in, until you have quarantined for 14 days or you have received a negative test result. Please note that the county health department has specific criteria for who is considered a contact. If you have any questions or concerns about possible exposure to COVID-19 please give us a call and we can help you figure out when it is safe for you to come in.
Recent onset of symptoms? Please call to cancel your appointment, we'll waive the cancellation fee.
Our staff is taking precautions, self-monitoring for symptoms and screening by taking their temperatures daily.
To control traffic flow, we can only accept patients with an appointment, no walk-ins. You're always welcome to call and check on availability for same-day appointments.
Our treatment room has 5 chairs, spaced over 6 feet apart, which allows us to treat 4 patients per hour. Treatments last about 40-45 minutes, giving us time to sanitize between patients.
Patients should arrive 5-10 minutes before their appointment time and wait in their cars until we text them to come in.
Consultations are offered by phone. Herbs and supplements are available for curbside pick-up.
