We will continue to monitor recommendations from the State of Ohio, the CDC, and the American Psychological Association and will adjust our COVID policies as the situation evolves. We will continue to see patients in person and via telehealth, as determined on an individual basis.
For in-person sessions, we are taking the following precautions to minimize risk of exposure to keep our patients, their families, ourselves, and our community safe:
- Our office is cleaned every 24 hours.
- Seating in the waiting areas is spaced to allow for physical distancing.
- We request that patients and family members (above the age of 2) wear a mask in the waiting room and common areas of the suite, provided they are medically able to.
- Clinicians are all fully vaccinated and will continue to utilize proper hand hygiene as well as monitor their physical health, either canceling appointments or seeing patients via telehealth if symptoms of COVID-19 are present.
- Patients/family members are asked to reschedule their appointment or be seen via telehealth if they have a fever of (100℉ or more) or if they have other symptoms of the coronavirus. If appointments are canceled for this reason, we will waive our usual cancellation fee.
- Clinicians and patients/families will determine whether or not they prefer to keep their masks on or remove them during a session.
- Patients/family members exposed to COVID-19 or testing positive for COVID-19 agree to inform our office if they believe they have been in close contact with a clinician, employee, or another person in our suite.
