Mission psychology is planning a partial re-opening of our office beginning July 1. While we intend to continue to offer video services as much as possible, we will meet with patients in person when they require in-person services. We will take precautions to reduce the risk of virus transmission. However, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to the COVID-19 virus. You assume all risks by coming into the office.
Employees will be screened at the beginning of each day and leave if they have new or worsening signs of symptoms of possible COVID-19 and may not return until they are tested and medically cleared. Mission Psychology will pay for testing. Any employee diagnosed with COVID-19 will not be allowed to return to work until at least 3 days after recovery. Employees are required to wear cloth masks while on site.
Rooms will be cleaned and disinfected daily.
Testing equipment and computers will be cleaned and disinfected after each use.
Appointments will be reduced in volume. Patients will be asked to arrive at their appointment time, not before. Do not bring people to the appointment who are not meeting with the clinician. Parents will be asked to wait in their cars or outside during their children’s appointments. No one will be allowed to sit in the waiting room. All patients and those accompanying them will be screened for symptoms prior to appointments.
Upon arrival, patients will be given masks and hand sanitizer and have a contactless temperature check. Masks may only be removed in order to complete a service. Clinicians will maintain 6 feet of distance unless closer contact is required to deliver services (e.g., testing).
Staff will wear gloves when handling paperwork, checks, credit cards, etc.
Screening questions to be asked of all patients before appointments. A review by the managing psychologist is required when a patient answers “Yes” to any of the following.
Have you or anyone in your household had any of the following symptoms in the last 21 days: sore throat, cough, chills, body aches for unknown reasons, shortness of breath for unknown reasons, loss of smell, loss of taste, fever at or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit?
Have you or anyone in your household been tested for COVID-19?
Have you or anyone in your household visited or received treatment in a hospital, nursing home, long-term care, or other health care facility in the past 30 days?
Have you or anyone in your household traveled in the U.S. in the past 21 days?
Have you or anyone in your household traveled on a cruise ship in the last 21 days?
Are you or anyone in your household a health care provider or emergency responder?
Have you or anyone in your household cared for an individual who is in quarantine or is a presumptive positive or has tested positive for COVID-19?
Do you have any reason to believe you or anyone in your household has been exposed to or acquired COVID-19?
To the best of your knowledge have you been in close proximity to any individual who tested positive for COVID-19?
