AB Acupuncture COVID-19

Health &  Safety Plan

Acupuncture is considered an essential health care operation by New York State. Caring for you during this time is my priority.

For everyone’s safety, the following procedures must be adhered to at all times for the duration of the COVID pandemic.



  • Please always be monitoring yourself for any signs of illness or malaise, but specifically

    • Cough, breathing issues, fever, shaking or chills, headache, sore throat, muscle pain or loss of taste or smell.

  • When you book an appointment, you will receive the normal confirmation email with a checklist of the above symptoms as well as asking whether you’ve traveled or had contact with anyone who has traveled.

  • This will be repeated in your 24 hour prior reminder email.  You must reply to this email confirming no symptoms before you come to the office

  • If you have, we must cancel your appointment and will discuss rescheduling options on the phone.


VISIT: When you arrive

  • TEXT ME FIRST to confirm that the office is clear before you come up.

  • Masks must be worn prior to entry and kept on at all times.I will be wearing one as well

  • Please remove shoes, there will be a tray to leave them near the door.

  • There will be a hand sanitizer dispenser at the door, please use it first and then proceed to the bathroom to use and/or wash hands for 20 seconds

  • All the doorknobs and surfaces, treatment table etc will have been wiped down with CDC approved cleaner before you arrive and after you leave.

  • My new space has windows, good ventilation and wood floors, but UV air filter will still be in use.

  • I will take your temperature with a touchless thermometer as well as your blood oxygen levels and we will confirm the screening questions one last time.

  • Only one patient will ever be in the office at a time, so there will be no one to bump into.

  • I will be scheduling cleaning time in between each appointment, so please arrive on time so I can keep to that.



  • I get COVID tests every two weeks and am now fully vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine.

  • I drive to and from the office and will not be on any public transportation

  • Contact Tracing concerns: the CDC definition of ‘contact’ means being in contact with someone AND within 6 feet of each other for longer than 15 minutes.Both I and every patient will be masked at all times, and when I am not working on your body, we will be 6 feet apart.
