The Triangle and Nation are now greatly impacted from this novel coronavirus and subsequent disease known as COVID-19. Despite the uncertainty of how long this will last and the impact on small businesses such as ours, the overwhelming science and prevailing strategies on how to contain the ever-growing spread of COVID-19 mean doing our part to stop it. This is easily the right thing to do, and we will be closing our doors for in-person appointments effective immediately and to continue till Wednesday, April 1 before re-evaluating.
The outpouring of support from our ActivEdge Fitness members and Upright Athlete patients has been tremendous. You have stepped up in a big way during these difficult times. Your kindness to us, advanced financial support in various ways, and encouragement through these unchartered waters are the reason why we love this community of people so much! Thank you for all you do and we appreciate you all dearly!
THE NEW NORMAL: UPRIGHT ATHLETE TELEMEDICINE AND PHYSICAL THERAPY
Upright Athlete has also adjusted its services and switched to a telemedicine using a HIPAA compliant and secure platform as well as a custom app with all their therapists. Almost all appointments can be seen using this service, including new visits, and will be billed through insurance or paid out-of-pocket the usual and customary way. Just like members of ActivEdge, Upright Athlete patients can make appointments to pick up any supplies and equipment needed for their rehab and recovery under quarantine at home. Completely sanitized equipment ready for curbside delivery. Please consider this insurance-reimbursed telemedicine service as a great way to continue to rehab and get started without delay, since we are unsure or how long the quarantine will last. See below for appointment contacts in you haven’t set one up already.
