I want to personally update you on a topic that is on everyone’s mind – the coronavirus (COVID-19). I want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation closely and have several initiatives in place at our office to ensure the well-being of our patients and employees. I want to share with you the various precautionary measures we are taking to continue to focus on keeping our patients and employees safe and healthy.
We are following guidance from public health officials and general governmental agencies, including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), so we can make assessments and provide guidance as the situation develops. As of now, our office is deemed an " essential business" by our state. Therefore we will continue to be open to serve your health care needs.
Employee self–care is important to us. We continue to focus on washing our hands regularly and staying home when sick to prevent spread of germs to others. Hand sanitizers are placed throughout the clinic for patients and staff to use. In addition to our regular cleaning in our clinic, there has been an increased focus on cleaning and sanitizing the more commonly touched hard surfaces, including treatment tables, handles, phones and keyboards. Headrest paper will be applied under the patient’s head during appropriate therapy and in treatment rooms. The treating doctors will utilize hand sanitizer between each patient and will open and close the door of the treatment room. We are also scheduling patients so that there is minimal interaction with others while you are here.
We ask that if you are sick, please reschedule your appointments until you are well. We also ask that if you cough or sneeze while in our office, please cover your mouth and nose with your elbow for the protection of others.
At Longo Chiropractic and Deep Tissue Laser Center, our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the Coronavirus. I want to assure you that our patients and staff are a top priority. We are committed to continue to provide the best healthcare treatment and experience during this challenging time.
We are open regular hours:
Monday and Wednesday 9:00 - 7:00
Tuesday and Friday 9:00 - 5:30
Yours in health,
Dr. Steven Longo
