COVID-19 information and what we are doing to protect you

W e n t z e l




We are aware of the seriousness of COVID-19 and we will take all reasonable steps to keep you safe in our office.  

 Here is what we are doing:

  •  We are encouraging all patients and staff who have any symptoms of cold or flu to remain home.  We will not allow anyone with such symptoms to enter our office.


  • We are thoroughly sanitizing all contact surfaces in our office with sanitizing wipes and disinfecting agents regularly. 


  • We are sanitizing our hands regularly and definitely between every patient encounter.


  • We are mandating that each patient sanitize their hands using our hand sanitizing station in the hallway before entering the treatment room and again before leaving the office.


  • We thoroughly sanitize the treatment tables and therapy equipment with antiseptic wipes and disinfecting agents between every patient. 


  • All office staff are wearing face masks to protect you.  We therefore ask that all patients entering the office don a face mask as well to protect us and fellow patients.  Any individual who enters the office must wear an appropriate face mask that covers the mouth and nose at all times while in the office.  




Here are some tips to help you and your family feel safe and ready to face the world.


In General

Wash, wash, wash your hands. Did you know soap and water are more effective than hand sanitizer (and apparently easier to find right now)? To really get rid of any germs, wash for at least 20 seconds – which just happens to be how long it takes to hum Row-Row-Row Your Boat three times.

Be sneeze- and cough-courteous. Coughing or sneezing into a tissue or the inner crook of your arm catches the droplets that would otherwise end up in the air or on the surfaces around you. The COVID-19 virus is transmitted through droplets, not through breathing, so this is important.

Masks Please!  The benefit of a mask is that it controls the outbound expression of germs when someone coughs, sneezes or even speaks strongly. If you’re unknowingly infected a mask can greatly protect those around you from the germs you send out when you talk, cough or sneeze.

Don’t touch your face! The easiest way to get sick (with any kind of virus) is to introduce germs from your hands to mucus membranes – like your eyes, nose and mouth.

Netflix and chill. If you’re not feeling well (whether it’s coronavirus or an old-school cold or flu) please stay home, cuddle with your dog and catch up on your favorite shows.

Out in the world shopping?  Take your own hand sanitizer and some Clorox wipes and clean anything you are about to touch that everyone else is touching, such as, the shopping cart handles, door knobs, and using credit card kiosks, etc.

Personal space. Keep at least 6 feet between you and everyone else near you.
 
Breathe in, breathe out. Fresh air is a good thing. Weather and location permitting, crack a window.

Be on your best behavior. Keep yourself in good shape by getting plenty of sleep, being physically active, drinking lots of water and eating nutritious foods. A stressed body is a weak body, so manage your stress through exercise, meditation or conversation with a trusted friend.
