Guidelines for In-person services during COVID-19 public health crisis

Here are quick tips to prepare for appointments with your child’s Washburn Center therapist during the pandemic. For complete details, review the COVID Informed Consent 2021 prior to your child’s appointment.

  • Take temperature for your child and you (if joining the session) prior to the meeting with a therapist.
  • Wait in a designated waiting area until 5 or less minutes before your scheduled appointment.
  • Wear a mask during the session and in any building that requires face coverings (schools, community spaces, Washburn Center locations etc.).
  • Wash your hands upon entering the building; alcohol-based sanitizer will also be available.
  • Follow safe distancing precautions in waiting areas and testing/therapy rooms.
  • Greet others, including your Washburn Center therapist, from a distance of 6 feet.
  • Ensure children accompanying you follow similar sanitation practices and physical distancing protocols.

We are looking to best protect Washburn Center staff, clients and all of our families from COVID-19.
