Coronavirus Updates

Update 4/24/2020

On April 23, 2020 Governor Beshear and the Kentucky Department of Public Health informed us that chiropractic offices can reopen on April 27 under Phase I Healthcare Reopening.

The guidelines that we must follow require that we obtain the proper medical grade PPE, hand sanitizer and disinfectants among other items. We ordered many of these items weeks ago with delivery dates into June. We are tracking our shipments and anticipate that we should have enough PPE to be able to reopen sometime in May. We will begin calling patients on May 1 to reschedule appointments.

There will be a new normal for all of us with this reopening. Guidelines require that every patient wear a mask. You will have to remain in your vehicle prior to your appointment because we are not allowed to have waiting rooms. A screening will be done at the time that we are scheduling your appointment and you will have to agree to having your temperature taken before your appointment. We will go over all the guidelines required when we call each of you to reschedule. If you feel uncomfortable following these guidelines or you are concerned about returning to treatment at this time, we totally understand and will keep you on a call list as the guidelines change. Your health and safety is our utmost concern.

If you have any comments, concerns or questions please feel free to email us at baerchiro@gmail.com.

We will update our website as the guidelines change. Please take care of yourselves and your families. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. Be safe.

We hope you are all healthy and well. On March 18, 2020 we closed our office per an executive order from the Kentucky governor's office due to COVID-19.

We still do not have any idea of an end date. The Kentucky Chiropractic Board and the Kentucky Chiropractic organizations continue to update us on any progress in Frankfort.

We will keep you posted in regards to a re-opening date as soon as we are notified by the authorities. For the time being, we fully support the governor's mandate as we feel that social distancing is the most responsible and effective way of preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Although these times are anxious and stressful, we hope you continue to rest, relax, eat well and sleep well. We will continue to do the same.

We miss you all and look forward to being able to see you again. Please feel free to email us at baerchiro@gmail.com and let us know how you are.

Take care of yourselves, your families and be safe.

Our office is closed effective March 18, 2020, per the Kentucky Cabinet for Health Services, the Kentucky Governor's office and the CDC guidelines for COVID-19. We hope to reopen on April 6, 2020, but will be in contact with the authorities as the guidelines change.

We agree that this is the responsible action to take for the health and well-being of our patients, our community, and ourselves. Please continue to wash your hands, practice social distancing, eat a healthy diet, exercise, and get enough sleep. We will update this website as we receive new information.

Please be safe and take care of yourself and others.
