Office Safety Precautions for COVID-19

Our office is taking the following precautions to protect our patients and help slow the spread of COVID-19:

 

  • Office seating in the waiting room has been arranged for appropriate physical distancing.

 

  • All psychologists and staff wear masks and gloves.

 

  • All staff maintain safe distancing (>6 feet) whenever possible. Testing rooms are equipped with plastic dividers/sneeze guards to enhance prevention of the spread of COVID-19 due to the close proximity of patient and staff (<6 feet) required in this setting.

 

  • Automatic rest room soap dispensers are maintained, and everyone is encouraged to wash their hands frequently.

 

  • Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol is available in the testing rooms and the waiting room/reception counter.

 

  • We schedule appointments at specific intervals to minimize the number of people in the waiting room.

 

  • We ask all patients to wait in their cars until instructed to enter the clinic.

 

  • Credit card pads, pens, clipboards and other surfaces that are commonly touched are thoroughly sanitized after each use.

 

  • Physical contact is not permitted.

 

  • Tissues and trash bins are easily accessed. Trash is disposed of on a frequent basis.

 

  • Common areas are thoroughly disinfected at the end of each day.
