What You Need to Know about COVID-19

MotionWorks Physical Therapy is still open, serving the needs of patients who require physical therapy in an out-patient setting.  MotionWorks Physical Therapy is following all CDC guidelines with extra infection control practices to ensure our clinic surfaces remain clean, as well as advising all staff to stay home if any symptoms or exposures occur.   As always, we ask that our patients do not attend any physical therapy visits if you have any active signs of illness to keep our staff and other patients safe.  Please call to cancel your upcoming appointment(s) should symptoms or any exposures to others who might have COVID-19.  Please cancel any in-person visits if you have been quarantined.  Those who are feeling otherwise well and are without fever but are quarantined are welcome to utilize our telemedicine offerings for physical therapy visits during quarantine.  Please contact our front desk immediately to modify any currently scheduled in-person visits at 920-215-2050.

If you are one of our scheduled patients, please ask yourself the following screening questions prior to attending your appointment:

  1. Have you felt feverish or experienced respiratory symptoms such as a cough or shortness of breath?
  2. Within the past 14 days, have you traveled outside of the country or to any areas within the country currently experiencing a high level of COVID-19 cases?
  3. Have you been in contact with someone who has, or is suspected to have, COVID-19?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please call us at 920-215-2050 to cancel your appointments for the next 14 days, stay home, and self-quarantine.
If you think you might have symptoms of coronavirus (fever, cough, shortness of breath), call your physician's office or one of the local health systems to find out how you can be tested immediately.

If you have emergency symptoms of consistent chest pressure or pain, turn bluish in the lips or face, are confused or difficult to arouse, or have difficulty breathing, call 911 and let dispatch know if you suspect you may be infected with coronavirus.

We appreciate your cooperation as we do our part to keep our community safe, and we will continue to follow CDC and Winnebago County guidelines and update as needed on our MotionWorks Physical Therapy Facebook page. If you have any questions or concerns, you can also contact us by phone at 920-215-2050 or email at info@motionworkspt.com.  Please do not panic, but maintain common sense infection control measures in your home with frequent hand washing and reducing unnecessary exposures to reduce you and your family's risk of COVID-19.
