I wanted to send out a brief update on coronavirus from the Reboot Center perspective. Though this might change, there are currently shortages of appropriate equipment and supplies required to safely and effectively test individuals for COVID-19. Because of this, Reboot Center providers are (at this time) unable to see patients who have symptoms associated with COVID-19, nor offer COVID-19 testing.
Therefore, in order to continue to be able to provide much-needed care to our Reboot community, we request that you please refrain from coming to the office if:
- You have a sore throat, elevated body temperature, cough, shortness of breath or any other symptoms of a common cold or flu.
- You have had contact with someone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19.
If you have any of these symptoms and are too sick to stay home, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. If you go to the ER, please call ahead and notify them of your symptoms; they may route you to a different hospital-based on availability:
If you have a fever and no complicating health concerns, stay home until you are fever-free for a minimum of 72 hours.
ON THE PLUS SIDE: We are fast-tracking the implementation of telehealth services at Reboot Center; once this is in place, you can have virtual visits with us. More on this soon – stay tuned!
Let’s keep our collective immune systems healthy and foolproof. Here are a few of my favorites:
