Karori Chiropractic Update
As our country responds to the COVID-19 situation, this page has been created to keep patients informed on what Karori Chiropractic is doing to keep them out of harm’s way.
The health and safety of our patients is always our top priority; therefore, the following precautionary measures have been put in place for each Alert Level:
Alert Level 1 and 2
Karori Chiropractic is open under Level 1 and Level 2.
The following measures will be made in the clinic while in these levels:
We ask any potential visitors to the clinic to comply with the following terms:
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with the coronavirus disease, please do not enter the clinic.
These symptoms include:
- Sore throat
- Unexplained fatigue
- Difficulty breathing
Please keep away from the clinic if there’s a risk you may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Do not enter the clinic if:
- You have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with coronavirus disease or is a probable or suspected case.
- You are sharing a house with someone who is currently in quarantine due to the virus.
- You have been overseas in the past 14 days.
If you wish to bring a friend or family member to the appointment, only one additional person is allowed. Your support person will be required to leave their contact details for purposes of contact tracing.
It would be appreciated if all people entering the clinic could please use the hand sanitiser on the front desk before continuing any further into the building.
What is being done to reduce risk:
The chiropractor will wear a mask throughout the appointment.
Frequently touched areas are being wiped down multiple times throughout the day. These include door handles, counter-tops, the Eftpos machine and other areas. They also include areas the chiropractor touches frequently, including computer keyboards and mice, desktops and telephones.
The two treatment tables are being thoroughly wiped down after every appointment, ensuring all surfaces that may have contacted by the patients body or breath are targeted. The chiropractic tools and devices are also being wiped in between use.
The chiropractor is applying hand santiser before touching patients and reapplied throughout the appointment if necessary.
Face-papers continue to be changed between patients and disposed of outside of the treatment room. Linen is also being changed frequently.
Appointments are being spaced apart to avoid patients coming into contact with each other and to minimise wait times.
Physical contact between the chiropractor and the patient is being kept to a minimum when possible.
Alert Level 3 and 4
For the safety of the public, Karori Chiropractic will be closed while we are in level 3 and level 4.
