The novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19, which is contagious and presents a risk of exposure anywhere people are present. Scientific and public knowledge regarding the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 and associated risks is still developing and any current recommendations or understanding of the disease may change over time. COVID-19 may have a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious. In some cases, COVID-19 can lead to severe illness and death.
Although we will always do our best to social distance, the nature of treatments received at Hyperbaric Oxygen Clinic of Idaho makes it impossible to always comply with the CDC’s current social distancing recommendations of maintaining a distance of 2 meters (6 feet) between persons. For example, the hyperbaric technician will need to take your vitals before and after each treatment.
Such circumstances are things you must consider before pursuing in-clinic treatment. The decision to pursue treatment in-clinic is sometimes especially difficult for the immune-compromised when they are faced with a possible viral threat but hyperbaric oxygen therapy can possibly enhance health and immune system function, indirectly reducing risk of contracting COVID-19 and possibly reducing complications if contracted.
