Patient and Clinic Safety Checklist

  • Masks or Face shields are mandatory for staff and patients.  Please bring your own.
  • Hand sanitizing station set up in the clinic entryway.  Please sanitize your hands upon entering.
  • Temperature checks will be done on every patient.
  • CoVid 19 potential exposure questionnaire will be sent via email prior to each visit to be completed by each patient before every visit (until further notice). 
  • OWA will have a clean sheet on every table, chair, or tent which will be changed after each use.
  • All surfaces that are most often touched (doors knobs, front desk, bathroom area) will be sanitized using gloves at least every hour and more frequently if needed.
  • Surface cleaning sanitizer is EPA approved.
  • Hand sanitizer is alcohol based.  If that is a problem, a vigorous washing with soap and water (sing happy birthday twice) is easily done in either of 2 sinks in the office (back room and the restroom).
  • Acupuncturist will use hand sanitizer or hand washing between patients or if touching non-sterile surface.
  • Social distancing between patients is easy if everyone follows the guidelines to not enter the office before being called by One World Acupuncture while patient waits in their car.  We do not have a waiting room for the time being.
  • Patient need to come alone unless scheduled with another patient (family member most likely).  Most patients coming together can be accommodated in the front room together while following the guidelines on this safety checklist.
  • Acupuncturist will call you from your car at your appointment time.  You will have to wait if you come too early, you will have to reschedule if you come too late.  Please be understanding about this rule. 
  • Appointments only, no walk-ins please.
  • We have treatment space on the back patio which we are excited to offer.  Being outside has shown to reduce risk of CoVid 19 transmission.  We can accommodate 3 patients at any one time outside if it isn’t raining or too cold.
