To upcoming Turning Point clients, we hope you are all safe and healthy! Who knew a month ago that we would be having so many Covidersations? You can access our current Covid-19 response from the homepage or on our blog. With almost daily changes to our lives, we will be sending you updates as needed to help “flatten the curve” and keep you safe.
According to the Stay at Home Order from Denver Mayor Hancock, Governor Polis’ executive order, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment public health order, we are in compliance with C.R.S. § 24-33.5-701 section 6B vii: For purposes of this Order, individuals may leave their residence to work for or obtain services at any “Healthcare Operations” including, but not limited to: behavioral health. Please be aware of following additional measures:
*Until the virus subsides, only one parent should accompany the child to their assessment appointment and siblings should remain at home. Both parents can be included in the follow-up call.
*We are offering clients the option to reschedule in May or June if you would like to postpone your assessment. Please call or email me with your preferred dates (all assessments start at 10am).
*If you would like to keep your assessment appointment, we are happy to keep it as is.
*Again, we are taking every precaution to sanitize equipment, toys, and the work space prior to and after all testing. We will also offer protective face masks when you arrive if you want, and will ask that you clean your hands upon entering and exiting.
Thank you for your understanding. We are all looking forward to helping you soon.
UPDATED INFORMATION FROM CDC ON COVID-19 (updated 4/28/2020)
HOW COVID-19 SPREADS
The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”) in many affected geographic areas. Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.
Learn what is known about the spread of newly emerged coronaviruses.
Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread from person to person through respiratory droplets. Currently, there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food. Before preparing or eating food it is important to always wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds for general food safety. Throughout the day use a tissue to cover your coughing or sneezing, and wash your hands after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, or going to the bathroom.
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object, like a packaging container, that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from food products or packaging.
