COVID-19 POLICIES & PROCEDURES

Updated 10/1/21

All recommended CDC, Vermont Dept of Health, and CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) COVID-19 guidelines will be required to be followed due to insurance contract agreements and for the safety of our patients and staff. So therefore effective immediately:

​MASK POLICY: 

Masks will be required at all times for staff, patients, and visitors regardless of vaccine status since we are a healthcare facility. 

VACCINE STATUS:

If you have been vaccinated, please bring your COVID vaccine card to your appointment to be scanned into your chart, as it is part of your medical history. As of October 1, 2021 Dorset Physio will only take new patients who are fully vaccinated. Once our region's COVID numbers have declined and our young children are eligible for the vaccine, we will revisit this policy. We hope to accept all patients soon again, so please get vaccinated if you are eligible. 

ILLNESS/CLOSE CONTACT PROTOCOL:

If you have ANY signs of illness, stay home and your appointment will be rescheduled. You will not be penalized for cancelling. If you have any COVID like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste, etc), you may be required to take a COVID-19 Test (PCR or antigen) and provide negative results prior to attending your next appointment. If you have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, please follow the Dept of Health quarantine guidelines and your appointment will be rescheduled once your quarantine is completed. 

COVID VISITOR POLICY:

Only 1 visitor is allowed inside the building and only if they are required to assist in your care and/or if the patient is a minor. Other special circumstances can be discussed with your therapist prior to the visit.  


As a reminder these policies are for the well being of all the patients at Dorset Physio, our community, our staff, and our families. Thank you!
