COVID-19

Update

We Are Open and Here to Serve You

Vital Health is open and available to serve your healthcare needs. We are available for both existing and new patients.

We encourage you to come in and get an immune boosting acupuncture treatment to help you during this time, and ask us about herbs and supplements to help support your immune system. This is not the time to neglect your health, this is the time to be as healthy as possible.

It’s best not to wait until illness strikes, be proactive and take steps to be as healthy as possible. Add acupuncture and nutritional therapy to your plan of action.

We want to reassure you that we are going to extraordinary lengths to make sure that our office is clean and safe for you and for our staff (see below for details).

Other Options

As always, your supplements are available for purchase at Vital Health, either inside the building or via curbside pick-up. For those who prefer the convenience of having your supplements shipped to you, click the button below. In addition, for those who prefer a phone consultation appointment, instead of an in-office visit, call us at 208-765-1994 to schedule.

Keeping You Safe and Healthy

Since the advent of COVID-19, Vital Health has implemented a variety of policies and procedures to mitigate risk to patients and staff, while still assisting our patients in being as healthy as possible during this challenging time. The following is a summary of what we are doing:
 
  • Patients who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (such as cough, fever, or difficulty breathing), those with known exposure to someone with COVID-19, or those who have recently traveled to COVID-19 affected areas are not allowed to come into the clinic setting. Instead, they are encouraged to schedule a phone consultation appointment and get their supplements via mail or curb-side pick-up, in order to reduce the potential exposure to staff and other patients.
  • iPad check-in has been eliminated to reduce exposure from commonly touched surfaces. Instead, front desk staff are manually checking-in the patient.
  • Books in the treatment rooms have been removed, to eliminate commonly touched and difficult to sanitize potential exposure items.
  • Whenever possible, patients are immediately being taken to a treatment room upon arrival, this has allowed us to eliminate a potential group exposure situation in the waiting room.
  • Having observed patients appropriately utilizing social distancing in our common areas, we have deemed it unnecessary to re-structure the locations of our waiting room chairs or place tape on the ground to indicate line spacing. If this becomes an issue, we will re-evaluate this policy.
  • Treatment rooms are disinfected after every patient visit.
  • Commonly touched surfaces, including front desk counters, pens, merchant machines, and phones, are being disinfected frequently throughout the day.
  • Patients who are doing Health Management Office Visits, have the option of conducting their appointment via telephone.
  • Patients have the option of purchasing their supplements online or via curb-side pick-up, to reduce potential exposure.
  • Health classes have been shifted to a webinar format, to avoid potential group exposure situations.
  • Employee hands are being washed frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are not available, they use hand sanitizer.
  • Employees wear gloves when extra protection is needed.
  • Employees have been instructed to avoid touching their eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Employees have been instructed to practice good respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
  • Employees have been instructed to avoid close contact with people who are sick and should maintain social distancing with all patients as much as is reasonable within the scope of their duties.
  • Employees are to stay home if they are sick or have recently been exposed.
We recommend that if you’ve recently come in contact with a symptomatic person, or that you’re experiencing a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, to please remain at home. Rest and get the appropriate care.
 
Otherwise, we recommend that you keep your appointments, because it’s for your benefit to keep your immune system strong. Know that our office is taking the necessary precautions to keep you safe. 
 
If you’re unsure about whether to keep your appointment or not, contact the office to discuss it. But if you’re experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or you’ve recently come in contact with an infected person, we recommend that you stay home, but still call our office so that we can follow your progress from a distance, and provide you the best support that we can over a telephone consultation.
