Prevail PT COVID-19 Response

As of 04/03/23, masking is no longer required

in healthcare facilities

per Washington State DOH. 

Out of consideration to our staff and other patients, we are asking patients that have been sick in the last 10 days to consider a mask.

If you have tested positive for COVID, please note the following requirements before entering the clinic:

1. Minimum of 5 days from the start of COVID symptoms or positive test

2. Significantly reduced symptoms demonstrating resolving illness

All Prevail staff are vaccinated and boosted.

Masks are still no longer required for healthcare settings. If not currently masked, clinicians will ask each patient at the start of their appointment if the patient would prefer a mask to be worn by the clinician. Clinicians will honor patients’ masking preference.

As always, we continue to sanitize rooms and equipment between patients, as well as continuing our check-in protocol of symptom screen.

 Prevail continues to navigate through this pandemic and provide our community with the best patient care, we rely heavily on both national and local health care guidelines to create a safe treatment environment for all our patients, clients, and staff.

As of 04/03/23, masks are longer required in healthcare facilities per the Washington State DOH. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to update their guidelines and we continue to modify our policies and procedures to follow those guidelines. Here is a link to review their latest guidelines regarding COVID19 in general, as well as specific recommendations regarding vaccines, masks, testing, exposure response, etc. 

As always, we continue to sanitize rooms and all equipment between patients, as well as continuing our check-in protocol of symptom screen. We will continue our diligence and compliance with the CDC and Washington State DOH and encourage all our patients to do so as well.

We appreciate those who have supported us, are honored to serve you, and welcome questions, comments, and suggestions.

These are the steps we’re taking to mitigate risk.


Clinic Entry Limitations

  • We are taking the temperature of every entrant before they are granted access to the clinic.
  • Any patient or staff member who is experiencing suspect symptoms are not allowed into the clinic space until a negative test and/or symptom resolution. 


  • All surfaces & items that come into patient contact will be cleaned or eliminated between patients.
  • The first and/or last 5 minutes of scheduled appointment time may be dedicated to cleaning & sanitizing workstations.
  • “Unclean Zone” established to hold items used by patients & clinicians that have not been cleaned yet.

We are now offering telemedicine as an alternative to in-office visits.
