We make this agreement with you, and ask that you make it with us: We are following current CDC and local government guidelines regarding masking and social distancing. We wash or sanitize our hands frequently when outside our own homes. Within 5 days of your appointment we will not have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a doctor or local public health official, nor will we have experienced any of the common symptoms of COVID-19 or knowingly come into prolonged contact with anyone who has without being tested. These statements are also true for people who are in our households.
We screen ourselves daily. Using the same questions we ask you, we will make sure we have a high probability of health before we 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.
We 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, we need you to wait until at least 10 minutes before your appointment to call up, as we are cleaning 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 our office.
At our door: Shoes come off at the door and we will show you where to put your things. Please bring your own water.
We will both wear masks. Washington state has lifted the mask requirement in most businesses for those who are fully vaccinated, but the Secretary of Health’s mask order will remain in place even after June 30, which means all people, regardless of vaccination status, are still required to wear masks in health care settings including our treatment room. There is a nifty workaround for face-down droplet capture if wearing a mask in the face cradle seems suffocating.
Between sessions We clean everything we use or come into contact with, and run a powerful fan that pulls the air out of the office to clear the room of aerosolized droplets.
It is our hope that with all of these precautions in place we won’t ever have to give your information to a contact tracing team, but if it comes to that, we will, and we expect you will do the same for us.
