Back To Health COVID-19 Resource Center

Our office has been working hard to stay up to date on all current CDC, EPA, State and Federal guidelines regarding caring for our patients since the beginning of the first case in our country.  We have in place a very thorough Office Procedure and Safety Manual which you will find very informative.  It was intended for only our employees but we think it will be helpful for you to have as well so that you know what to expect when you come to the office.  Click on the PDF or the Word Icon to view the Procedure and Safety Manual.
In a world where it's nearly impossible to separate the news from the fake news, I think this video from a Pulmonologist working in an ICU in New York City is perhaps the most important video that I have seen giving real world advice on what is really going on and what to do.  Do yourself a favor and take the time to watch this video!

This one is a must watch...

Want to know the 'real' numbers instead of just what you're hearing on the news?  CDC Daily update
This is an excellent resource put out by the Florida Chiropractic Society with links to Federal and State Government COVID-19 Resources, an explaination as to why Chiropractic is considered an "Essential Service" during these times, Links to the CDC, and MUCH MORE!  Odds are that if the link to the resource you're looking for is not on here, it doesn't exist ...

This study tested 455 contacts of an "Asymptomatic Carrier" to determine how contagious an asymptomatic carrier actually was.

STUDY METHODS: "455 contacts who were exposed to the asymptomatic COVID-19 virus carrier became the subjects of our research. They were divided into three groups: 35 patients, 196 family members and 224 hospital staffs. We extracted their epidemiological information, clinical records, auxiliary examination results and therapeutic schedules."

RESULT: "No severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections was detected in 455 contacts by nucleic acid test."

CONCLUSION: "In summary, all the 455 contacts were excluded from SARS-CoV-2 infection and we conclude that the infectivity of some asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 carriers might be weak."

IN SHORT: ZERO people in direct contact with an Asymptomatic Carrier of COVID-19 became infected. So, if you have symptoms including a cough, a fever or shortness of breath STAY HOME or Get to the hospital if breathing is difficult JUST LIKE WITH ANY OTHER INFECTION like The Flu! BUT, based on this study, if you're not symptomatic it is VERY unlikely that you can infect someone else AND it is very unlikely that you can BE INFECTED by an asymptomatic carrier.

 

By the way, do you know what we call an asymptomatic carrier? -- A HEALTHY PERSON fighting off an infection with their innate ability and immune system.

This is a very interesting, albeit different point of view, with credible scientists, doctors and mathematicians and epidemiologist's opinions.
