Special Announcement: Clinic Update
The health of our patients, family members, and team members are very important to Life Beyond Barriers Rehabilitation Group (LBBRG). At this time, therapy has been classified as an essential service per governor orders. Both LBBRG clinics will remain open for patients who are not experiencing symptoms of the COVID-19 /coronavirus (fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, body aches) and have not been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.
LBBRG clinics have made operational and policy changes in order to protect patients and team members, during the COVID-19/ coronavirus pandemic. LBBRG is dedicated to educating our community about COVID-19 and risks to slow the spread of the virus, including the importance of social distancing and proper hygiene.

- Every person will be called prior to their appointment to screen for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure.
- Every person entering the clinics (i.e. LBBRG staff, clients, caregivers) will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms, which includes taking of temperatures with no-touch infrared technology
- Hand hygiene and use of proper PPE
- Sanitization of equipment, the clinic in general, and all work surfaces before & after use and every hour respectively throughout the day, and at the end of the business day.
- Clinic access will be limited to PATIENTS ONLY with the exceptions:
– A person providing medical care
– A person supporting activities of daily living
– A parent or guardian of a patient 21 years or younger
