COVID 19 Health Precautions 

Rest assured, we are taking every measure possible to keep your children and our staff healthy. 

We are offering teletherapy and in-person appointments for both new and existing clients.  

If you choose to have your child seen in the clinic, we have made the following adjustments, keeping everyone's safety at top of mind at all times. :

 

  • All employees will be wearing masks throughout the duration of your child’s session. (Masks for your child are optional)

 

  • To reduce the risk of extra germs, all parents must wait outside in their cars during their child’s session. Additionally, our restrooms are no longer public.

 

  • We are regularly sanitizing all high touch areas (using all of the CDC guidelines) as well as sanitizing treatment areas and all items used in therapy between each session.

 

  • We are taking each child’s temperature, leaving shoes outside and making sure their hands are sanitized before they enter the clinic.

 

  • Treatment areas have been adjusted to the recommended social distancing protocols. 

 

  • The large motor gym is now open, with fewer items, but still many options for children to play on. At this time, the gym is only open to OT patients.

 

  • We are taking the temperature of all staff members throughout the day.

Please be aware that if you do choose in-person appointments that social distancing (6’ apart) will not be realistic with most of the kids, which is why we've placed such stringest practices in place. 

We will continue to follow CDC guidelines which are as follows:

 

FOR ANYONE WHO HAS KNOWINGLY BEEN AROUND A PERSON WITH COVID-19: 

Please stay at home for 14 days after exposure.

Please call the office to cancel your appointments for everyone’s health and safety, we will be glad to see you via teletherapy during that 14 day period.

 

COVID POSITIVE AND SYMPTOMATIC: 

in order to return to the clinic (for both staff and clients) you can be around others after:

  • 3 days with no fever, and no use of fever reducing medications  AND 

  • Symptoms improved  AND

  • 10 days since symptoms first appeared

 

** Depending on your doctor’s advice you might get tested to see if you still have COVID. If you will be tested, you can be around others when you have no fever, symptoms have improved, and you have received two negative test results in a row, at least 24 hours apart.

 

COVID POSITIVE BUT NO SYMPTOMS:

If you continue to have no symptoms, you can be with others after:

  • 10 days have passed since testing positive 

 

** Depending on your doctor’s advice you might get tested to see if you still have COVID. If you will be tested, you can be around others when you have no fever, symptoms have improved, and you have received two negative test results in a row, at least 24 hours apart.

 

If you develop symptoms after testing positive, follow the guidelines above for COVID Positive and Symptomatic.

 

We realize these are challenging times and the risk of exposure continues to increase as our state opens up more and more. Our plan is to continue to operate in person as long as we are healthy, but realize we made need to switch back to teletherapy on a case by case basis as needed.
