With the rising numbers of COVID-19 throughout the state of Michigan, CWJR wants to assure you that the health and safety of our patients remain at the forefront of all that we do.
To reinforce that commitment, our staff continue to undergo intensive training based on CDC recommendations in order to clean our equipment and provide the proper equipment to eliminate the spread of germs.
Below are a few of the precautions we continue to practice at our facility:
Providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
Our staff will be dressed with the highest quality of personal protective equipment we have available. This includes: face masks, goggles/face shields, gowns, and gloves as appropriate. All staff, patients and necessary caregivers in the building will be asked to wear a mask unless they have a condition or circumstance that does not allow them to do so. If you or your family member have a concern about wearing a mask please let us know and we can discuss it with you.
Enhanced Cleaning Procedures:
Around our clinic, we have provided additional supplies for hygiene such as hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes. In addition to increasing the amount of time we are cleaning frequently touched surfaces, we will be using EPA-certified cleaning agents as listed on the CDC’s website.

Modifications To Our Clinic:
CWJR is dividing our 10,000 sq/ft building into sections to honor the 6-foot social distancing rule. We will also minimize the number of people within the treatment areas in order to provide ample space between different patients who are also in therapy. In addition, we will be eliminating the usage of our lobby for the time being and ask that everyone waits in their cars unless a parent/caregiver is permitted for safety reasons. A therapist will escort you or your loved one into the clinic through different entrances throughout the building and will return to the vehicle following their session(s). We have also installed over 25 hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the clinic, including one at each entrance and within each treatment room.
Screening and Temperature Checks of Patients and Staff
When confirming patient appointments our team will conduct a series of screening questions over the phone. Upon arrival, these questions will be asked again and the temperature of the patient will be taken. After a successful screening has been done, then the patient will be brought in for treatment. Our staff will also be participating in the same process.
Again, we completely respect the decisions that you have made and want to assure you that CWJR is here for you whenever you feel more comfortable with returning to the clinic. Our only goal is to reassure you that our clinic has gone through rigorous cleaning and our staff is well-equipped to provide therapy.
We hope you and your loved ones continue to stay healthy during this time. If you have any additional questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to us at 586-323-2957.
