COVID EXPOSURE CONTROL, MITIGATION AND RECOVERY PLAN:
Your appointment times may have changed as I have had to space appointments 30 minutes apart for cleaning and disinfecting.
Online intake via MassageBook now includes Covid-19 screening questions and waiver includes HIPAA and Covid-19 specific language.
I will call the day before your appointment for screening https://www.apple.com/covid19/
Can you exercise to get your heart rate and respiratory rate up without any problem? (This would indicate whether their cardiopulmonary function is unimpaired.)
Have you had a new onset of muscle aches and pain since the emergence of the virus? (This is a possible early sign of coagulopathy, and a reason to defer treatment until the person has been tested and cleared of coagulopathy risk.)
Have you seen any new marks, rashes, spots, bumps, or other lesions on your skin? (This indicates the possibility of microvascular clotting, and is reason to defer treatment until the person has been tested and cleared of coagulopathy risk.) In terms of clinical decision-making, we can start here: any new signs of skin lesions or discoloration need to be fully resolved before we can be sure that massage is safe. Any signs of pulmonary or cardiovascular strain needs to be resolved. And any client using an anticoagulant to treat complications related to COVID needs to delay massage until they are no longer at risk for blood clotting.
I will be screening myself in the same way.
Do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment, I need that time to clean and disinfect. Wear a mask into the building.
Wash your hands when you get off the elevator, or use hand sanitizer at the door of my room.
Screening Questions, temp and oxygen test at the door.

Shoes off at the door.
We will both wear masks. I will be changing out my PPE between sessions (mask, goggles, apron and/or smock).
My office will look different. I have lots of hand sanitizer and everything is wipable.

There will be specific places for your stuff.
Bring your own water.
Touchless payment is appreciated, I can also send a Square invoice that you can pay.
I make this agreement with you, and ask that you make it with me:
I am practicing social distancing as requested by our state and local officials and wearing a mask when in public spaces indoors or within 6' of those outside my "quaranteam". I wash or sanitize my hands frequently when outside my own home.
Within 14 days of your appointment I will not have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a doctor or local public health official, nor will I have experienced any of the common symptoms of COVID-19 or knowingly come into prolonged contact with anyone who has.
These statements are also true for people who are in my “quaranteam”.
If I am exposed I will give your name to a contact tracing team and ask you to do the same for me.
