COVID-19 OFFICE POLICY

 

As we continue to navigate through these  we have updated our Covid-19 office policy to help be as accommodating as possible and still keep staff and clients safe and healthy.  Please see the direct below which is effective immediately (4/1/2022).

 

OFFICE PROCEDURES:

STAFF: Routine cleaning of materials and all surfaces.  

CLIENTS: Patients and Caregivers come to clinic at time of appointment. We are still trying to limit many people at one time inside our waiting room, so caregivers can wait in car during session if possible.  Therapist will come get client/family at their appointment time. 

  • EVERYONE WASHES HANDS OR USES HAND SANITIZER UPON ENTERING THE CLINIC.

  • TEMPERATURES MAY BE TAKEN FOR THOSE WHO ENTER THE CLINIC.

  • MASKS ARE OPTIONAL. IF THE PATIENT WOULD LIKE THE THERAPIST TO WEAR A MASK, PLEASE JUST TALK TO EITHER THE THERAPIST OR OUR CLIENT CARE COORDINATOR.

 

If clients cannot come into the clinic for a session, telehealth appointments are available and encouraged when appropriate.

 

POSSIBLE SICKNESS:

Patients CANNOT come into our clinics for sessions if:

  • In the past 5 days patient has had symptoms of COVID-19:  fever, cough, breathing problems, sudden loss of taste or smell, sore throat, sneezing, or muscle aches.

  • If someone in the household has tested positive for COVID-19, no one from the household is allowed into the clinic until there is a negative test or 5 days have passed from the date of a positive test.  Below is additional information from the CDC...

Who does not need to quarantine?

If you came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you are in one of the following groups, you do not need to quarantine.

 

You should wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of your last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0). Get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19. If you test positive or develop COVID-19 symptoms, isolate from other people and follow recommendations in the Isolation section below. If you tested positive for COVID-19 with a viral test within the previous 90 days and subsequently recovered and remain without COVID-19 symptoms, you do not need to quarantine or get tested after close contact.
