Your health & safety is our top priority!

At the Prime Sports Institute, we are ethically and legally bound to engage in protocols to protect ourselves and our clients.  

The health and safety of our clients and staff remain our top priority.  We are following guidelines and recommendations for COVID-19 from public health officials and will remain open with regular business hours.  We will continue to keep you informed of any changes through our newsletter and social media. 

Prime Sports Institute has always maintained high standards for cleaning our health care facility: sanitizing treatment tables, mats, and chairs; cleaning face cradles and arm rests; disinfecting treatment tools and shared equipment before and after each client; practicing proper hand/arm washing; single use linens and sanitary laundry practices are all standard procedures.

Beginning March 5th, we increased our cleaning schedule of common surfaces such as door knobs, light switches, equipment, chairs, point of sale system, and restroom handles.  Rest assured you are walking into a sanitized facility.  We take your health and our health seriously.
