COVID-19 Safety and Mask Policy

 

*COVID-19 and Mask Mandate Update*

In light of the state's decision to eliminate the mask mandate, Hays County Physical Therapy and Wellness will continue to require all patients, staff, providers, and visitors to wear a mask while at the clinic. We respect everyone's point of view during these challenging and uncertain times, however, our position as healthcare providers is to keep all members of our community safe and virus-free. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the suggested guidelines of the CDC and medical exerts. Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate through the pandemic and move closer to truly putting this behind us.

Patient Screening Questionnaire:

  1. Have you experienced any of the following symptoms in the past 48 hours: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea?
     

  2. Within the past 14 days, have you been in close physical contact (6 feet or closer for at least 15 minutes) with a person known to have laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 or with anyone who has any symptoms consistent with COVID-19?
     

  3. Are you isolating or quarantining because you may have been exposed to a person with COVID-19, or are you worried that you may be sick with COVID-19?
     

  4. Have you recently taken or are currently waiting on the results of a COVID-19 test?

 

If you answered "yes" to any of the screening questions above, please contact our office at 512-268-9130 to reschedule your appointment or request a virtual appointment.
