As an ongoing effort to help the spread of COVID-19 please familiarize yourself to the policies below .....
COVID-19/Corona Virus Precaution Protocol
No doubt, you have probably been hearing a great deal about the spread of COVID-19, Coronavirus. Here is the what you can expect from us here at Center for Children and Families. It is our intention to do our part in protecting your health while responding proportionately to the actual risk. Our goal is to reduce the chances of spreading this virus in accordance to recommendations by our local health care leaders per their communications with the Center for Disease Control and other mandated authorities.
When it comes to therapy, we are fortunate to have the option of providing video and/or phone sessions if that is preferable, so that sessions can continue even when it is not advisable to meet in person. If you would prefer a phone or video session as apposed to coming for your regularly scheduled face to face appointment, many of our therapists can arrange for this accommodation.
1) If you are sick, please don't come to an in-person session. If you have a fever, we would ask that you do not come to the office until your temperature has stayed below 100.4 degrees for at least 24 hours, without the help of fever-reducing or other symptom-alerting medicine - this is in accordance with the CDC recommendations. ARRANGEMENTS FOR VIDEO OR PHONE SESSION can be made in this scenario. Should your provider develop symptoms you will be alerted immediately.
2) If you have travel abroad (or any areas within the US that were deemed at-risk for local transmission in the future), please inform us before you session so that we can make a decision about meeting in-person or switching to alternative options for the following two week period.
3) Some general hygiene notes:
-We'll refrain from handshakes, hugs, or other contact for the duration of the outbreak.
-Please cover your mouth and nose, preferable with your sleeve or a tissue, when you sneeze or cough.
-Please wash your hands with regularity and before you come into the office.
4) Cancellation policy during this acute phase - We commit to discussing options and alternatives with you and making decisions together, should the need arise.
We hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have any questions or thoughts.
