Firstly, we want to thank everyone for their continued patience and support in helping to maintain a safe and secure environment. You can continue to feel safe and secure knowing that our entire staff has completed COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters. In accordance with recommendations from the CDC, Washington State DOH as well as King County, as a healthcare facility we continue to require that all staff and patients alike wear masks inside our clinic, whether or not you are vaccinated. This is for your safety and the safety of all of your fellow patients. We continue to employ best practices to keep our clinic safe and clean, which include:
- Screening staff and patients for potential COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering the clinic
- Availability of disposable masks, face shields, and goggles
- Utilizing CDC approved disinfectants and cleaners
- Utilizing HEPA Air purifiers in the gym and private rooms for improved air circulation
- Addition of Air Scrubbers to the building’s HVAC system and an increase of fresh air ventilation into the building
- Following all current CDC and Washington State guidelines.
Current CDC guidelines state, “People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter.”
If you’ve had a COVID-19 exposure, current guidelines state “For people who are unvaccinated or are more than six months out from their second mRNA dose (or more than 2 months after the J&J vaccine) and not yet boosted, CDC now recommends quarantine for 5 days followed by strict mask use for an additional 5 days. Alternatively, if a 5-day quarantine is not feasible, it is imperative that an exposed person wear a well-fitting mask at all times when around others for 10 days after exposure. Individuals who have received their booster shot do not need to quarantine following an exposure, but should wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure. For all those exposed, best practice would also include a test for SARS-CoV-2 at day 5 after exposure. If symptoms occur, individuals should immediately quarantine until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.”
