COVID-19 UPDATE

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we want to reassure you that the health and safety of our customers and staff is our top priority. We continue to follow the latest CDC and World Health Organization Guidelines.

We are OPEN despite the shelter-in-place order in Montana.   We are considered an ESSENTIAL business and medical facility.  We have been deemed essential to help flatten the curve by helping keep people out of doctors offices and ERs and letting these medical teams focus on those impacted by COVID-19. For more information on “essential” as it pertains to physical therapy, click here….and here.  

We know everyone has been concerned about all the news regarding COVID-19, or Coronavirus. We wanted to take a minute to offer information about what we are doing, as well as some tips that you can consider for yourself.

We are doing our best to minimize your risk for exposure to COVID-19 as well as all other viruses. We continue to maintain a clean clinic through vigilant cleaning of all surfaces (allowing 15 minutes between patients for disinfection), frequent hand washing practice, and an extensive and strict screening process for those coming through our door to ensure that they are healthy in order to minimize your risk for exposure.

Also our clinic as a whole will be:

  • Cleaning & Disinfecting door handles, light switches, faucets, mats, and all touched surfaces.
  • Applying hand-sanitizer or washing hands as soon as we get to work.
  • Applying hand-sanitizer or washing hands before and after eating and before returning to our work areas.
  • Sanitizing all workstations with Clorox wipes before working.
  • Washing our hands before and after seeing patients.
  • Using gloves, if needed, while treating our patients.
  • Apply hand-sanitizer and/or wash hands when departing the clinic.
  • All staff and patients are now required to wear masks when inside the facility.

We are also using bleach for all laundry done at the clinic.

Additionally, for the past 6 weeks we’ve been running large humidifiers with colloidal silver and grapefruit seed extract in open spaces and ProShield essential oils in the treatment room diffusers.    These provide us additional means to kill bacteria and viruses.

At Fischer PT, we now have a facility that gives us a major advantage in providing our services.    With over 6000 square feet of space, it is relatively easy to follow the social distance procedures of 6 feet separation

Be well and we will keep you updated as this situation continues.
