The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NE DHHS) are reliable sources for COVID-19 information. It is also highly recommended to check your local and county health department or city council websites to be compliant with any mask mandates or other restrictions.
At this time, chiropractors fall under the medical professional/healthcare facilities category and are advised to observe physical distancing to the extent possible, and follow all other applicable local, state, and federal guidelines for disease prevention and disinfection of surfaces. All chiropractic offices can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by educating themselves and their patients about the current status of the virus, symptoms, risk factors, and what they can do to minimize the risk of infection.
