The following letter was sent by DPTA leadership to the Director of Legislative Services in the Office of the Governor:

Dear Mr. Seemans,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Delaware Physical Therapy Association (DPTA). As Governor Carney and his advisors are expected to make additional recommendations for essential versus nonessential businesses that will be allowed to operate during this COVID -9 crisis, the DPTA requests that you please be aware that is important for nearly all physical therapy patients to continue to get care. Our national association, The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has made the following recommendations:

"APTA encourages PTs, PTAs, and students to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak by following CDC guidance to minimize exposure in the clinic and practice social distancing by avoiding large social gatherings. At the same time, we know that our profession plays a crucial role in the health of our society, and there are people in our communities whose health will be significantly impacted by disruptions to care.

Patient care has always been specific to the individual, with the physical therapist assessing a person's needs relative to their goals. Thus, physical therapists have a responsibility to review CDC guidance, to understand who is at highest risk and how to best reduce exposure, and to use their professional judgment in the best interests of their patients and clients and their local communities — including rescheduling non urgent care if that is the best approach, or making other adjustments when the risk of exposure to COVID-19 outweighs the benefits of immediate treatment."

APTA Statement on Patient Care and Practice Management During COVID-19 Outbreak, March 17, 2020

The DPTA, speaking for the physical therapy community in Delaware, strongly urges that physical therapy facilities be considered "essential" and part of the overall medical provider community that will remain open. Thank you very much for your consideration of this request and for your diligent work on the half of the citizens of Delaware.

PTDOS Sign Ups — PT Day of Service

Please see below for email from Gail Bachman, Director of PT Day of Service:

Our team here at PT Day of Service noted we have yet to have any any PTs, PTAs, or students signed up from the state of Delaware this year.

For the past 5 years we have been able to bring together individuals in our profession from all 50 states for this amazing day of service to our local communities. I know there are tons of passionate and giving PTs, PTAs and students in your state so I am hoping you might be able to reach out to a few of them to encourage them to sign-up for PTDOS this year.

Here is the link to our sign-up: http://ptdayofservice.com/ptdos-signups

PTDOS is officially October 12th but we count projects up to two weeks after that date. No project is too big or too small. Here are some examples of projects that have been done in the past:

Community Clean Up —> find a local park, beach or recreational area to clean up. By picking up the trash we improve the environment in which our patients and clients can exercise and enjoy their lives!
Health Education —> provide a 30min - 1 hour educational seminar on a health topic you feel is appropriate for your community. Previous examples include diet and exercise for diabetes management, strength/stretching to improve posture, or balance for older adults to prevent falls.
Donation Drive —> collect items you community needs such as shoes, food, or exercise equipment and donate these to a local non-profit organization or directly to community members in need.
Pro-Bono PT Services —> open your clinic or set-up a temporary clinic site for a day of free physiotherapy screenings. Provide PT services and recommendations as appropriate for those in need.

You may also select to become a “PTDOS Ambassador” at this time. These individuals are our grassroots organizers who recruit volunteers, coordinate a service site and help to spread the word about the day. The PTDOS team is also always at your service to help answer questions and support your ef...
