Chiropractic COVID-19 exposure can spread the virus to more than 300 people


According to Clark County Public Health, a Salmon Creek chiropractic office had a COVID-19 exposure last week that could spread coronovirus to more than 300 people.

Last week, an employee at Chiro One Wellness Center Salmon Creek, 13800 NE 20 Avenue, worked with the virus while remaining potentially contagious, and probably used the virus for 300 patients who visited the office four days of the previous week be exposed.

Another 14 people, who work in the chiropractor’s office, were also likely exposed to the virus.

Patients who visited the Salmon Creek location on September 8, September 9, September 10 and September 11 are at risk of contracting COVID-19, and must quarantine. On other days patients visiting the Salmon Creek office or visiting other Chiro Forest locations were not exposed and did not need to quarantine.

According to a public health press release, Chiro One Wellness Center provided public health with the names and contact information of all affected patients.

Public health will contact patients to inform them of their contact and provide additional information about quarantine. This process can take several days, so patients who were at the Chero Forest Wellness Center in Salmon Creek between 8–11 should immediately quarantine and not wait for public health notification.

Patients in the 8–11 date range should quarantine for 14 days from their most recent visit to the wellness center. Persons living in quarantine should stay at home and avoid contact with anyone who is not a member of the household. They should not go to any public places or go to work.

Anyone who questions before contacting public health can call 360-386-2140.

Public Health calls these close contacts health care providers and requests testing for COVID-19, even if they do not have symptoms. According to public health, regardless of the test results, the closed contact for 14 days should still be quarantined. Anyone who develops symptoms during a 14-day quarantine, even if they have previously tested negative, should be tested for COVID-19.

COVID-19 symptoms may develop two to 14 days after exposure and may include cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills or chills, muscle aches, headaches, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell. Huh.

Face coverings should be worn in all public places and anytime people are gathering with others from outside their home, as they are one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus. People should practice physical disturbances whenever they are around others and do not keep more than five people together.

Public health recommends that you use your hands often, when soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to cover coughs and sneezes, touching your face with unwanted hands. Avoid, often disinfect high-touch surfaces and stay home when sick.
