March 17 Update
With the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are all living in a new environment. Connect continues to closely monitor all medical and community news and will use the information to keep our office a safe and healthy space for us all. As healthcare professionals and a community partner with you, we will continue to provide timely updates.
Several updates for you today:
All spaces and equipment in the office were deeply cleaned this weekend.
Detailed sanitization processes enacted for use throughout and at the close of day.
Implemented additional screening. As you arrive, we will ask several questions for any symptoms of concern: fever, cough, international travel in the past 14 days, exposure to anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.
24-hour cancellation policy waived to accommodate individual circumstances.
If you need to reschedule a PT appointment, please call us at (503)974-9078. In some, though not all circumstances, we can arrange for a ‘virtual’ appointment. Unfortunately, insurance does not allow physical therapy to charge for virtual care, but we can arrange for payment at our self-pay rate.
With today’s increased stress, uncertainty and anxiety, we encourage our Connect community to practice good self-care. In addition to adhering to guidelines for limiting exposure, you can do things to boost your personal immunity. Yoga, tai chi, deep breathing, Pilates and meditation are all of significant benefit. We begin our Spring term of classes in April, watch for details.
Remember, Connect is a small, free-standing clinic. This means you enter with confidence as
There is an upfront cleaning station
We respect social distancing
The waiting area offers open space
We have individual treatment rooms
Physical spaces are cleaned throughout the day for each patient.
Our hearts continue to reach out to everyone as we do our best to come together as a community. Thank you for being a loyal partner with Connect and as always know we welcome your questions and suggestions.
