McHenry Physical Therapy COVID-19 Update
If you’ve been watching the news, you’re probably already aware that confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States is growing and is now in Illinois. As a precautionary measure, we’d like to offer some recommendations and information about coronavirus as it relates to your care. Please read through the following FAQ and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Am I at risk?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offered the following information:
- People in communities with a growing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are at an elevated and risk is increasing.
- Like other viruses, COVID-19 cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds; exposure to the disease itself is the greatest risk factor associated with contracting it.
- Social distancing is recommended to reduce risk
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of coronavirus include:
- Shortness of breath
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we ask that you contact your primary care physician for further advice. In the meantime, as a courtesy to your therapist, our clinic staff, and your fellow patients, please do not come into the clinic at this time.
We are also currently limiting visits to the clinic for patients that are at high risk and are following health screening recommendations.
Red Rock PT is working on a Telehealth option for care to continue to keep everyone healthy and moving. Watch for another announcement soon. In the meantime, you can still reach us at 815-451-4502 with any questions.
Wishing you good health,
The Red Rock Team
