COVID-19 Precautions

Enhanced Safety Guidelines

Parris Wellness is committed to keeping our patients, staff, and our community as safe as possible during these unprecedented times. We acupuncturists are trained in infectious disease prevention and the Parris Wellness clinic has always operated within the CDC guidelines. We have now added to these protocols with enhanced health, safety, and cleaning policies detailed below.

Heightened Staff & Patient Screening

We ask that any patient experiencing COVID or fl u-like symptoms contact our offi ce to receive care through our virtual services, or reschedule / cancel their appointment with no cancellation fee.

Before coming to our clinic for treatment you will be required to sign a health declaration sent to you virtually stating that you are not exhibiting signs of COVID-19; cough, fever, fatigue, loss of taste and smell. When coming to the office for treatment you will have your temperature taken. If the temperature is 100 or more degrees, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment and will not be seen that day. Safety first.

I will be conducting new patients’ initial consultations virtually, to minimize your time spent in the treatment room. We will keep patients’ appointments spaced 1 hour and one half apart to allow for ample time for cleaning and disinfecting the rooms before the next patients enters.

We appreciate that you come alone for your treatment. Patients will not be permitted to wait in our waiting room for all of our safety. You will be show to your treatment room after your temperature is taken and you have applied our enhanced hand sanitizer.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We at Parris Wellness will wear a surgical mask, gloves, and scrubs for all of our safety. All patients will be required to wear a face mask.

Contactless Transactions

We request that you have a credit card on file with us before coming to our clinic to reduce time in the waiting area during check out. You may pay by check or CC.

Enhanced Cleaning

We have put into place enhanced cleaning procedures to ensure surfaces and key touch points are disinfected throughout the day and after each patient.

Parris Wellness has been professionally cleaned using CDC-approved cleaners that are specialized and proven to remove COVID-related germs from surfaces.

All cleaning products have been approved by the CDC and EPA as protective to Coronavirus (Sars-Cov-2).

Between each appointment, rooms will be thoroughly disinfected, table paper, robes, will be changed, and all hard surfaces will be cleaned including face cradles, treatment table, bolsters.

Each room is equipped with an air sterilizing HEPA and carbon filter air purifiers to keep the air quality at optimum levels for our health and safety.

We practitioners and our office assistance will wash and sanitize our hands before and after each patient interaction. We will have hand sanitizer available at Parris Wellness. These enhanced COVID procedures are on top of the already stringent guidelines we had in place for cleaning, acupuncture, and herb safety.


At Parris Wellness we take the upmost care in creating a calm, safe and welcoming environment. Cleanliness is a critical component of making this a place where you feel you can relax – but it is also absolutely crucial to making it safe.

You can feel confident that at Parris Wellness we have taken all safety precautions to ensure that your health and ours are protected.
