In Office Policies and Procedures for COVID 19:
Several of our practitioners will begin to see a limited number of clients in person starting in June while other counselors will continue to do telehealth services only. If you have been seeing your provider via telehealth please continue to do so unless you directly hear from your provider that they are returning for in-person sessions.
When returning to in person visits please be aware of the following:
It is very important to us that our staff, practitioners and clients are able to stay as safe and healthy as possible therefore new policies are being implemented in our office during this unusual time.
Practitioners will be taking time before and after seeing each client to utilize enhanced procedures to clean and sterilize the room, door handles, etc.
Administration will be working different hours than usual during this time; some hours will be from home, so if you are coming for an intake appointment, please print and bring in the completed intake forms for your appointment which can be found on www.mwrcounseling.com . Please call or email our office if you would like an electronic version.
We are asking clients to wash their hands or use sanitizer prior to the session.
At this time, we are not allowing clients to wait in the waiting room. Please wait in your vehicle until we call or text to invite you into the office. We will escort children as needed. Counselors will call or email parents or guardians after the session to update them.
To protect all clients and practitioners at MWR, masks are required by all clients and practitioners to enter and exit MWR and to walk through the waiting room.
Additionally, we are asking clients NOT to attend appointments and stay home if you:
- Have had a fever or felt hot or feverish within the last 21 days
- Are having shortness of breath or other difficulties breathing
- Have a cough
- Have any flu-like symptoms, such as gastrointestinal upset, headache or fatigue
- Are experiencing any recent loss of taste or smell
- Have been in ANY contact with a confirmed Covid-19 positive patient
- If you have heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, diabetes, or other auto-immune disorders
- Have traveled in the past 14 days to any regions affected by Covid-19 (as relevant to your location)
We want to do our part in reminding you of the potential risks of choosing to attend inperson sessions. We are doing our best to keep our offices as clean and safe as possible.
If you choose to attend in-person sessions you could be at risk for contracting COVID19 despite our updated cleaning and safety protocols.
We understand the many differing beliefs and feelings regarding new protocols at this time and we appreciate your ongoing cooperation as we begin to open MWR. We are doing our best to create a safe, clean space for everyone based on the current public health recommendations.
Thank you for supporting MWR.
