Addressing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Concerns:
Here at Femina Physical Therapy, we are following COVID-19 along with the rest of the world. Our offices have always followed Universal Precautions and follow CDC infection control guidelines. Related to the COVID-19 per CDC’s website, “specifically the CDC does NOT currently recommend the general public use facemasks. Instead, CDC recommends following everyday preventive actions, such as washing your hands, covering your cough, and staying home when you are sick.”
As far as our company policies, staff continue to wash their hands before and after every patient encounter, cleans exercise equipment after each patient, uses fresh linens for each patient and requests that if patients are febrile or have traveled from higher risk areas to please cancel your appointment to avoid the spread of infection.
We will continue to update our policies in accordance with CDC guidelines.
