CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PROCEDURES

To our clients and colleague

The health, safety and well-being of our clients, staff and community are of the utmost importance to us. As a psychological services practice, we face a special challenge since our work with clients is conducted in person. We want to participate in helping to reduce the

possibility of spreading the virus. but also want to continue to meet the needs of our clients. In light of this, we are taking measures to keep you, our staff and our community safe and healthy.

 

Currently, our office will remain open during our regular business hours, but we are taking extra precautions for infection control. Here are some items we wish to share with you:

  • We have always had hand sanitizer available at our front desk. We are now providing hospital grade sanitizing skin wipes. Please sanitize your hands upon entering ouroffice.

  • We ask that you do not come to our office if you are experiencing symptoms of any illness.

  • We have always wiped our front desk area, offices and waiting room down frequently but we have increased the use of disinfectant on all surfaces in the office to help reduce the risk of exposure to infections.

  • We have removed reading materials from our reception area to minimize surface exposures. You may want to bring your own reading material for use in the waiting room.

  • We will be refraining from handshakes, but we will offer an "elbow bump" and a shared smile as we greet and say goodbye.

  • We are working on equipping our clinicians with technology to work remotely so that if I when governmental directives mandate or recommend the closure of our office, we can be set up to continue seeing clients. We are confident of our ability to provide uninterrupted service to our clients during this emergency if the insurance industry cooperates. If you prefer a remote session sooner than that, please call your insurance company to find out if they will cover a remote session. if not, we will work with you on a unique fee.

 

We want to reassure you that we are doing what we can to promote a safe and secure

environment for everyone, and we encourage you to call if you have any concerns or

questions.

 

Sincerely,

The Staff at Psychological Associates
