Contact us as soon as possible! We do not want illness to spread to others. Special needs and medically fragile children need you to stay home and/or keep your child at home when either of you are sick.

Please stay home if you have:

  • Tested positive for COVID.
  • Vomited or had diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • A rash, lice or nits
  • Strep throat or ear infection (until at least 24 hours after starting antibiotics).
  • An eye infection
  • A sore throat for multiple days
  • A fever over 101 degrees
  • May find it difficult to participate in a therapy session

Just started feeling sick, now what?

  • Test yourself for COVID, and if you test positive, follow the instructions below.
  • Check the expiration date on your test to make sure your test isn’t expired.
  • If you test negative for COVID, and are not exhibiting any symptoms (cough, fever, or shortness of breath), you can attend therapy if you can wear a mask anytime you are in a shared space with clients or providers.
A client has been exposed to COVID-19, now what?
  • Wear a mask for 10 days (Day 0 is the day you were exposed, and the next day is Day 1).
  • Test for COVID on day 6, or sooner if symptoms appear.
    • Check the expiration date on your test to make sure it isn’t expired.
    • Even if it is a negative test, continue to wear a mask for all 10 days.
