Children’s aid Health Centers are following all CDC and NYS and NYC Departments of Health guidelines to prevent spread of COVID-19, and to help assure our patients’ health when you visit our centers. These include:
- We keep in person visits to a minimum, so as to avoid crowded waiting rooms. We have adjusted our schedules to be able to space out our visits.
- We call each patient the day before their visit and ask 4 screening questions: Do you have any COIVD-19 symptoms? Have you traveled anywhere in the past 14 days, that is on the NYS travel advisory list? Have you been in close contact with a person known to have COVID in the past 14 days? Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days? If the answer is Yes to any of these questions, we reschedule the appointment, if the patient is not acutely ill.
- We only allow one adult to accompany each child to their health center appointments, to reduce the number of people in our centers. If the patient is over age 18 years, we ask that they come alone.
- We assess our ill patients over the phone or via a telehealth visit, and, if we determine they need to be seen, bring them in early in the day, when our health centers are less crowded.
- When patients arrive at our health center to be seen, we take their temperature (as well as that of any accompanying family members), and once again ask the 4 screening questions, and follow the same procedure as noted above.
- All staff are required to take their temperatures twice daily. NO staff is permitted to come to work if they are ill. Staff entering the building must go through the same screening as our patients.
- Our waiting rooms have been cleared out to permit 6 feet of space between chairs.
- All patients and visitors are required to wear masks at all times in the health center, and to use hand sanitizer at health center entry, and frequently throughout their visit.
- No patients or accompanying visitors are permitted to eat or drink while in the health center.
- Our health staff wears CDC and NYS DOH recommend PPE at all times in the center.
- We follow CDC recommend disinfecting procedures of all examination room surfaces and equipment between each patient.
