Update on COVID-19 Precautions at CCFC

Dear Client,

As the news surrounding COVID-19 (the disease caused by the coronavirus) evolves, the main priorities of Connections Child & Family Center remain the same — to walk alongside our clients in optimizing their wellbeing.

Due to recent events and increasing concerns about COVID-19, we are offering telehealth (online) sessions as a healthy alternative to an office visit. Please factor in your understanding of your unique health needs and the needs of your loved ones when deciding whether to pursue office versus telehealth visits. If interested in telehealth, please inform your therapist for details.

You are welcome to continue coming into the office for appointments. We will be in the office at this time, unless ill ourselves.

Additional precautionary measures Connections Child & Family Center is taking for the office:

  • At least twice daily we are wiping hard surfaces with disinfecting wipes (including the office door handle) and using disinfecting spray for soft surfaces
  • Hand sanitizer is available to each client to use in office
  • Restrooms have disinfecting hand soap and paper towels available for use
    • All staff is following the 20 second guideline for hand washing

What Connections Child Family Center is asking of clients

  • We’ll refrain from handshakes, hugs, or other contact for the duration of the outbreak
  •  Please wash your hands before you come into the office.
  • If you or your child has had any of the following symptoms in the day prior to an appointment, please contact us to cancel their appointment.

    Fever
    Sore throat
    Continuous coughing and/or breathing trouble
    Vomiting

How to manage the stress of COVID-19

  • Step back from social media and news outlets
  • Use the opportunity in session to speak to your clinician about the balance between productive versus unproductive worry
  • Visit our website and social media accounts with additional tips for dealing with COVID-19 related anxieties, which will be regularly updated:

In closing

There is no right or wrong way to feel about COVID-19.  If you have a low level of concern, you are not under-reacting; and, if you are concerned and taking precautions and/or cancelling travel, you are not overreacting. If at any point between sessions you notice a level of fear or anxiety that is concerning to you or difficult to manage, please reach out through the client portal or by phone.

With Kindness,

Lauren Pasqua, PsyD

Executive Director
