COVID-19 PLAN

RCYS IS CURRENTLY OPEN FOR COUNSELING SERVICES

Clinical Care Response

 

As a community services provider we are committed to our social responsibility and closely monitoring and responding to the rapidly changing situation being caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

As we  navigate these challenging times and operate in both a responsive and responsible manner, we are implementing a few changes to keep our clients and staff safe.

As we continue to learn about the COVID-19, we will also be working to ensure we meet our client’s social-distancing need through the provision of telehealth services. We will keep our clients updated once this is in place.  


Clients who call to schedule an appointment will be asked if they are feeling ill or have a fever. If they are running a fever, they will be asked to stay home and reschedule their appointment.

Clients that come in and report running a fever will be asked to reschedule.

Clients that come in and are not running a fever but are sneezing and coughing will be asked to bring and wear a mask while in the building.

If a client has gone to the doctor for an illness (or calls and reports they will be going to the doctor for potential illness) a doctor’s notes can be requested upon time of appointment.

 

We will be doing everything on our part to keep our facilities clean and virus free.  This includes hourly sanitization of the facility.  

 

Please follow us on Facebook, as we post tips, fun activities and videos to help us cope during these difficult times.
