We are still open under the statewide shutdown order issued by Governor Polis effective today March 26 through April 14. We are still considered an essential business under this order. This means you are allowed to leave your home to come to our office.
Having said this, we are dramatically condensing our schedule over the next 2 weeks. We are in today (3/26) and tomorrow (3/27). Then starting next week we will open just Monday and Thursday.
We will require that each patient attest to all of the following at each visit. This is to protect our patients and our staff.
____I have not had any fever, cough, shortness of breath or other symptoms of the Covid-19 virus the last 2 weeks.
____I have not been in close proximity to anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 2 weeks.
____In the last 2 weeks. I have not traveled to New York, China, Europe or the Colorado mountains – Summit, Eagle, Pitkin, San Miguel counties, etc.
____I understand that my doctor, Glenn D. Hyman, will follow all CDC prevention guidelines before and during my visit but he cannot guarantee that I will not contract the virus known as Covid-19. I understand and accept this risk.
____I assert that my visit today is for a specific problem (ie, back pain, neck pain, headaches, etc) and is not a routine or “maintenance” visit.
We are constantly monitoring this situation to see if we should close. We continue to take all CDC mandated precautions, and to ensure that patients who come in do not encounter any other patients.
Like the rest of you, we are hopeful that this situation will improve in April.
Thanks and please take care,
