The Therapy Center at BGSP is committed to reducing the transmission of COVID-19 on the premises, in the interest of everyone’s health and safety. For that reason, we have implemented the following COVID-19 policies. The Therapy Center continues to offer telehealth service to people for whom these policies present an obstacle to attending in person.
For entry into the building, the Therapy Center requires individuals to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination plus an additional booster. Full vaccination includes the first two doses of either Pfizer or Moderna, a single dose of Johnson and Johnson, or a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization. Acceptable additional boosters are either Pfizer or Moderna.
Before your first in-person appointment, Therapy Center staff will ask to see your proof of immunization in order to proceed to your appointment.
To attend in person, the Therapy Center requires masks which completely cover the nose and mouth in all public areas of the building. Acceptable masks are either surgical-style, N95, KN95 or similar. (Cloth masks do not provide sufficient filtration.) If you do not have an approved mask, we will provide one at the door.
If you have any symptoms of potential COVID, you should stay home – even if you think you have allergies or a cold – until you are symptom free or have a negative COVID virus test. If you are ill with COVID symptoms, notify your therapist and request a telehealth session or a rescheduled appointment.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
If you are sick with, or have tested positive for COVID-19, notify your therapist and request a telehealth session or a rescheduled appointment. Do not return to the Therapy Center until after:
- At least 7 days since symptoms first appeared and
- At least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and
- Symptoms have improved
If you have recently had an appointment at the Therapy Center and discover you may have had COVID-19 at the time of the appointment, please notify your therapist right away
If you have come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 within the last 5 days, call your therapist to reschedule or move the appointment to telehealth. On day 6 after your exposure, take a COVID test. If your test is negative, you are welcome to resume in-person sessions.
“Close contact” is defined as being within 6 feet of someone who is COVID-19 positive for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.
The Therapy Center has upgraded its ventilation systems and provides HEPA filters for additional protection and air circulation in all therapy rooms, offices, and reception areas.
