During this uncertain time, we remain committed to serving our clients at the highest levels possible and appreciate your understanding. We are reaching out to you so that you can be aware, informed, and prepared as we work to continue providing medical services to you. 

The coronavirus epidemic affects and impacts all of us.

Our priority is the health and safety of our patients and employees. Our team has been working around the clock to implement new protections for our staff and to add Telemedicine to our service offerings so that we can continue to care for our patients while minimizing exposure. In light of this we have implemented the following changes:

For all patients that present to our office, please note that we are limiting the number of people that can attend the appointment with you to 1 person in light of the value of social distancing in reducing the exposure of the Coronavirus. Although we understand that many of our patients are parents and have to care for their children that are at home, we respectfully request that you set up a Telemedicine visit so that we can provide care for you while reducing the number of people that are exposed to one another.

Starting today, our team is now offering Telemedicine. Telemedicine is a virtual visit that, with an email address, allows our patients or our staff to schedule an appointment, preregister the patient, and then allow our practitioners to conduct the visit, exam, assessment and if necessary call in medication. All services are via an internet connection, or an Android or iPhone device or even Facetime or Duo. Please call our office and request to be set up on our Healow Telemedicine platform if you have not done so already. Our team will be able to assist you and schedule an appointment at a time that is convenient. 

All local hospitals and surgical facilities have stopped scheduling elective surgeries and we anticipate that we will no longer be able to schedule in office procedures at some point as well. If you are currently scheduled for a surgery in a surgical facility or in our office, please contact us to reschedule your appointment in the next week to ensure that your upcoming procedure can be performed.

We are in this together and can all play a part in keeping each other and our loved ones, friends, and communities healthy and safe.

 

--Instructions for sewing cloth masks

Below are instructions on how to make a homemade face mask with elastic:

Materials needed (with elastic)

  • Tight-weave cotton fabric (i.e. quilting cotton)

  • Fabric must be newly purchased within approximately the past year and never used.

  • Wash and dry fabric without fragrance or dyes prior to sewing.

  • Rope elastic, beading cord elastic will work. You may also use 1/8 inch flat elastic if 1/4 inch is unavailable. Some have used wider flat elastic and cut it in half with some success.

One adult mask requires two (2) 9 inch x 6 inch pieces tight-weave cotton and two 7 inch pieces of 1/4 inch elastic. Therefore, one yard of 44 inch wide fabric yields 12-15 masks. You need 7.5 yards of elastic for 25 masks (14 inches per mask).

You can make two sizes: adult or child. Adult-sized masks will be the greatest need.

Put right sides of cotton fabric together. Be sure any fabric design is placed horizontally.

Cut 9 x 6 (adult) or 7.5 x 5 (child)

Starting at the center of the bottom edge, sew to the first corner, stop. Sew the elastic with the edge out into the corner. A few stitches forward and back will hold this.

Sew to the next corner, stop, and bring the other end of the same elastic to the corner and sew a few stitches forward and back.

Now sew across that top of the mask to the next corner. Again, put an elastic with the edge out.

Sew to the next corner and sew in the other end of the same elastic.

Sew across the bottom leaving about 1.5 inch to 2 inch open. Stop, cut the thread. Turn inside out.

Pin 3 tucks on each side of the mask. Make sure the tucks are the same direction

Sew around the edge of the mask twice.

How do I donate?

To donate masks to Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, please email communitycares@srhs.com.

You can also drop off masks at Crescent Hospice, 839 Main Street, Suite D, in Buffalo--they need masks for their caregivers, and the facilities they serve have requested masks, as well.

--The Goodwill Store is temporarily closed, effective March 26. They are still accepting donations at the donation center.

--It has been brought to our attention that some in the media have incorrectly reported Chiropractic as a non-essential service that will not be offered under the Governor's Executive Order given on March 31, 2020. We wanted our patients to know we are open and seeing patients during our regular office hours (Monday-Thursday from 8AM-1PM and 3PM-7PM.) We close for lunch from 1-3PM daily. We are following the CDC's rules and regulations for social distancing and sanitizing our office. If you are concerned for your health and well-being and choose to wait until the virus clears, please do so, but if we can assist you with your chiropractic needs, please feel free to come to the office. Thank you for being our patient. We look forward to serving you in the future. Yours in health, Dr. Harold Privette & Staff phone: 864-429-2912 www.spineadjuster.com

--Sanders Garden Center is adjusting their hours. They will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday.

--At a press conference March 31, Governor Henry McMaster announced another executive order temporarily closing nonessential, close-contact businesses, venues, and activities, effective tomorrow, April 1st, and runs for 15 days by state statute. These include barber shops, hair salons, waxing salons, threading salons, nail salons and spas, body art facilities, tattoo parlors, tanning parlors, and massage therapy locations. It also includes entertainment venues, such as night clubs, bowling alleys, arcades, concert halls, theaters, auditoriums, performing arts centers, tourist attractions including museums, race tracks, indoor children's play areas (except for day cares), adult entertainment venues, bingo halls, and venues operated by social clubs. Also included are athletic facilities such as fitness centers and gyms, spas and public pools, spectator sports, sports requiring interaction with another person within 6 feet, those that involve shared equipment, and public playground equipment.

--Primary Care of Union--during this time, to keep our patients and staff both as safe as possible, we have made the decision to only do telehealth or telephone visits.  There will be no in house patients seen. To alleviate as much confusion as possible please call the office and we will advise any necessary arrangements to assist you. Please be safe and think of the safety of others during this time.

--Spartanburg Regional Statement on Employee Exposure to COVID-19

As this pandemic continues to spread throughout our state, Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, just like all hospitals, is dealing with issues related to employee exposure.

 

Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is aware of several healthcare clinicians across our system who have tested positive for COVID-19. Spartanburg Regional is well-prepared to ensure the safety and protection of our patients, community and staff during these challenging times.

 

Spartanburg Regional worked quickly to examine each employee’s work schedule and notified any patient or fellow employee with whom they came in close contact, providing them with instructions about self-monitoring.

 

“Spartanburg Regional doctors, nurses and staff are on the frontlines of caring for our community each day. Often, that means placing themselves at greater risk for exposure to a variety of illnesses – from common colds and the flu to COVID-19,” said Dr. Christopher Lombardozzi, chief medical officer. “We are working with DHEC closely to make sure every appropriate action is being taken for the health of our patients, community and staff.”

 

Federal privacy laws prohibit Spartanburg Regional from disclosing information about an individual patient, including healthcare workers. Spartanburg Regional is adhering to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control criteria for isolation and testing, both in caring for our patients and in meeting the health needs of our staff.

 

Spartanburg Regional encourages residents to do their part to limit the spread of COVID-19. Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, covering your cough and staying at home.

--Dr. Baarcke--"Due to the coronavirus outbreak and the recommendation of the ADA, SCDA, and our personal belief, our office will be closing through April 3rd. We hope to reopen April 6th. If you have an extreme emergency, you can leave a message on our voicemail at 427-9721 or email us at office@drbaarcke.com. You may also visit our website at drbaarcke.com for updates."

--Union County Family YMCA--"In order to protect the health of our community, a mandatory closure has been issued and will go into effect today March 20, 2020 at 7:00 P.M. Our plan is to reopen as soon as possible. We will continue to evaluate the risks and updates will be shared on social media."

--Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System is temporarily suspending all visitation at our hospitals. Effective 8 a.m. Thursday, March 19, 2020, visitation will be limited to only three situations:

  • End-of-life situations
  • Labor & Delivery
  • NICU and pediatric patients

These patients will be allowed only one visitor at a time.

Visitors under the age of 18 will not be allowed to visit any hospital campus.

For nursing facilities, all visitors are restricted, except in certain compassionate care situations, such as an end-of-life situation. 

In addition to these visitation restrictions, Spartanburg Regional will be closing many entrances to hospitals and facilities. Signage will direct patients to open entryways.

Certain screenings and testing, such as mammograms and lung scans, are being rescheduled, with the health system notifying patients.

--Walmart of Union will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. This is a company-wide move to aid in restocking and cleaning/sanitizing. On Tuesdays through April 28, Walmart will host an hour-long senior shopping event for customers aged 60 and older. This will be from 6-7 a.m. Tuesdays. The pharmacy and Vision Center will be open for that hour, as well.

--Union County Chamber of Commerce--"In an effort to serve our members and other local area businesses during this time of uncertainty we have complied Federal, State and Local resources on the Union County Chamber of Commerce website. Unionsc.com

We are receiving real time updates from our counterparts with the US Chamber of Commerce and have been on daily conference calls. We will update regularly as new information becomes available.. We will also be adding resources as they happen. Listed on the website are resources concerning local restaurants and what you may need to work and attend school remotely.

'The Chamber' will continue to maintain business hours as long as we are permitted so that we can keep you abreast of what is happening. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your needs, we will assist where possible."
