We continue to require masks while in our office in accordance with the WA state Department of Health guidelines for Health Care Providers.
You will notice a few changes in our office during your visit:

- All BVS team members have been fully vaccinated, including booster.
- We continue to have reduced seating in order to limit congestion in waiting areas and rooms.
- BVS team members will continue to wear ASTM level 3 face masks at all times, and have been thoroughly trained on proper face mask donning, doffing, and proper reuse of masks if necessary. Frequent and proper hand washing will continue.
- Disinfection with products in accordance with EPA’s List N of Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 continues to be performed on all touch points.
- Plexiglass barriers remain in high volume areas.
- MERV13 filters continue to be used in our office ventilation system according to ASHRAE recommendations.
