Dear patients of Pain Arthritis Relief Center (PARC),

We care deeply about your health and making you feel comfortable when you come to your appointment. We know news is coming out daily around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and that can mean a lot of uncertainty for you. We wanted to share an update on behalf of PARC on the precautionary steps we are taking to help protect the health of our patients and staff members.

Proper sanitizing of all exam rooms, equipment, and common patient areas has always been our standard. Out of an abundance of caution, we have greatly enhanced this standard and will follow any latest guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In the clinic, the PARC team is: 1. Thoroughly washing hands before and after each patient contact, 2. Thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces, such as station countertops and chairs, 3. Avoiding close contact with people who are sick, 4. Avoiding touching their eyes, nose, and mouth, 5. Avoiding shaking hands

We appreciate that you are staying home if you are not feeling well. A provider will be happy to check in on you over the phone.

Sincerely,

Your PARC Team
