COVID-19 Office Policy Update

Our office remains open and we continue to take additional steps to ensure a safe and sanitary environment. Moving forward we will continue to encourage social distancing and limiting the number of people in the office.

We ask that a
maximum of 2 people per family (client and one other person) enter the waiting room. For sibling sessions, we ask that a maximum of 3 people per family (two clients and one other person) enter the waiting room. If social distancing cannot be maintained in the common areas, please wear a face mask.

Please enter the waiting room no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time.

If more members are present in your party, please email your provider when you arrive and they will come out to the parking lot to escort you inside to keep the numbers in the waiting room to a minimum. We ask that everyone use the available hand sanitizer in the entry of the building and adhere to 6 feet social distancing.
As the novel coronavirus COVID-19 impacts our community, we will continue to watch the situation closely and implement recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Florida Department of Health, and local authorities.

  • Enhanced sanitizing procedure and frequent (hourly) cleaning throughout the building, including but not limited to doorknobs, faucets, toilet handles/seats, armchairs/chairs, light switches, and door jambs.

  • Removal of books, magazines, and other items (toys) that are unable to be properly sanitized.

  • Portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) purifiers with H13 True HEPA Filters placed in building common areas.

  • Access to hand sanitizer, Lysol/Clorox (or similar) spray and wipes, and hand soap in all common areas.

  • Rescheduling sessions with clients who have recently traveled to areas noted by the CDC to be Warning – Level 3 and/or Alert – Level 2.

  • Conducting telehealth sessions, as needed or upon request.

  • Rescheduling clients that are sick or presenting with illness. 

  • Walking clients in from parking lot to ensure social distancing in the waiting room, as needed or upon request.

  • Limiting number of people in building and in session.

  • 6 feet social distancing. If social distancing cannot be maintained in the common areas, please wear a face mask.

  • Touch-less temperature checks as needed, or by provider discretion.

The health and safety of our clients has always been our priority and since this is an evolving situation, we will continue to make operational changes as needed.
