Coronavirus/COVID-19 Policies and Practices
I make this agreement with you, and ask that you make it with me: I am practicing social distancing as requested by our state and local officials and wearing a mask when in public spaces indoors or within 6′ of those outside my “quaranteam”. I wash or sanitize my hands frequently when outside my own home. Within 14 days of your appointment I will not have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a doctor or local public health official, nor will I have experienced any of the common symptoms of COVID-19 or knowingly come into prolonged contact with anyone who has. These statements are also true for people who are in my household.
I will be screening myself daily. Using the same questions I ask you, along with temperature and blood oxygen readings, I will make sure I have a high probability of health before I work with you.
Please update your intake and waiver when you get the email prompting you to do so, whether you are a new or existing client.
I will text you the day before your appointment with a short checklist of screening questions, and if there is any question about your health or the health of your household we will reschedule with no cancellation fee.
At the building, I will need you to wait until at least 10 minutes before your appointment to call up, as I will be disinfecting everything and it takes time. If you are on foot/bike, you can enter the lobby with code 07743; if you are driving, please wait in your car until the designated time (within 10 minutes of your scheduled appointment start).
When you get off the elevator please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer at the door of my office.
At my door: assuming nothing has changed with your screening questions, we will take your temperature and blood oxygen level to make sure you have a high probability of health before we begin. Shoes come off at the door and I will show you where to put your things. Please bring your own water.
We will both wear masks. Building management asks that we wear masks in common areas of the building, and we will wear them during your session. I will be changing out my PPE between clients. There is a nifty workaround for face-down droplet capture if wearing a mask in the face cradle seems suffocating.
Between sessions I clean and disinfect everything we use or come into contact with, and I run a powerful fan that pulls the air out of the office to clear the room of aerosolized droplets.
It is my hope that with all of these precautions in place I won’t ever have to give your information to a contact tracing team, but if it comes to that, I will, and I expect you will do the same for me.
