Folsom PT Coronavirus Update
To The FPT Family Of Patients And Wellness Clients/Friends,
In compliance with the Governor’s request for all people over 65 to self-isolate, we are insisting that everyone wear masks at all times while in the clinic.
We must ask that if anyone is feeling ill, or believes they have had exposure to the coronavirus that they cancel their therapy appointments until they are confident their contagious period has ended.
We are looking into the use of the Internet to provide non-direct support for those seeking our advice but cannot be seen in the clinic.
As you all know, this is a rapidly changing situation, so our hope is to take action before the crisis forces us to do so – we believe this is the prudent thing to do.
Please keep an eye on your email for updates from us. We will do our best to keep you all apprised of the situation at FPT in a timely manner.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay well.

How Folsom Physical Therapy Is Protecting Patients & Staff
Novel human coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is of concern to all of us. We are taking tangible steps to help prevent the spread of disease and protect our patients and staff.
STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE SICK
A key point is keeping people who are ill away from other people. Therefore, we have instructed any staff feeling ill to remain at home. We ask the same of any patients feeling ill.
PRACTICE PROPER HAND & WRIST HYGIENE
Wash your hands – and your wrists often. Staff regularly wash their hands between patients, but we are placing extra emphasis on this. We ask patients to wash their hands, or use hand sanitizer, before and after treatment or group training class.
COVER YOUR COUGHS & SNEEZES WITH A TISSUE
Please cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If no tissue is handy, sneeze or cough into a bent elbow. Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing regularly.
AVOID TOUCHING YOUR EYES, NOSE OR MOUTH
People frequently touch their eyes, nose or mouth without even realizing it. Try and eliminate this behavior, particularly after touching objects or being around someone who is coughing or sneezing.
CLEANING & DISINFECTION IN OUR CLINIC
We have always practiced good cleaning and disinfecting protocols and have increased the frequency and depth of those efforts. Rest assured that we are paying extra attention to items that are frequently touched. We have increased the number of available bottles of surface cleaner in our gym. Please help us keep our community safe by sanitizing equipment after use/group training class.
