Counseling Services COVID-19 Response
As we begin to resume in-person services, please know that Counseling Services adheres to the most recent CDC guidelines for infection prevention and control. We have introduced care models that minimize the risk of the transmission of illness during your visit. If the following cannot occur, in-person services may not be offered:
- COVID-19 symptom screening for all patients upon arrival.
- Reduced density waiting room (i.e. staggered scheduling to minimize clinic traffic and congestion; no arrival prior to 5 minutes before appointment start time)
- Face masks are required
- Social distancing in offices and hallways
- Hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the clinic
- Floor signage to assist with physical distancing
- Our online Health Portal allows you to contact your provider and/or confirm appointment times
- Cleaning protocols in each office immediately following all appointments
- Regular sanitation of community spaces
- Daily cleaning and disinfecting of bathrooms
Please speak to your counselor if you have questions about any of the above.
