Letter to patients regarding COVID-19
Dear patients, friends, and colleagues,
After a few weeks of our soft opening, we now feel comfortable opening on a full time basis. We’ve tweaked our safety protocols and are set up well to limit unnecessary interactions and contact. At this time The Marsh remains closed to the public, so traffic in the building will be limited to Merz Physical Therapy patients, staff, and a few members of The Marsh staff.
Below is an outline of what a visit to Merz Physical Therapy looks like:
Schedule by calling the front desk – 952-935-4037
Park in the Northeast portion of the lower parking lot (near dumpsters/air handling units)
At appointment time (not before), call a designated number to let your therapist know you are ready
Please do not call before your scheduled appointment time as this time is being used to clean and sanitize
You will be escorted into the building by your therapist; we will take your temperature and your hands will be sanitized
Safety measures we’re taking:
It is mandatory for anyone entering the clinic to wear a face mask.
Temperatures taken upon arrival; if greater than 99.5 degrees F you will be sent home
This applies to patients as well as Merz employees
Extra time scheduled between patients to allow for deep cleaning of all surfaces, door handles, and hand washing
Hand sanitizer provided to patients upon arrival
Closure of waiting room (see above regarding waiting in your car)
Use of plexiglass shield at front desk
Sanitization of all pens after each use
Optional “telehealth” – virtual visits conducted via video conferencing
Thank you for being patient with us during this time. Please help us spread the word that our facility is open and actively taking patients in person and virtually. Any questions should be directed to our front desk at 952-935-4037.

“Without your wonderful care I would still be ‘clumping along.’ All the exercises your devised plus encouraging me to work on balance has made me steady on my feet. You have been my strongest advocate. I can never thank you enough.” — Deborah
