With Governor Newsom’s recent announcement regarding the state’s response to the increase in coronavirus cases, we wanted to take a moment to highlight all of the ways Innovate ABA is working towards maintaining a safe environment for our students and staff.
Due to ABA therapy being classified as a medically necessary service, Innovate ABA is allowed to remain open. We will continue to operate regularly as long as we believe we can provide a safe and effective therapy experience while minimizing the risks of spreading the virus. The health and well-being of our clients and staff is our top priority.
To help slow the spread of disease, we will continue to be diligent in following CDC guidelines as they are updated. What this looks like in the office:
Temperature checks of all persons upon arrival to the office
The addition of waiting areas outside the suite and on the building exterior to limit the number of people in the office.
Having students wash their hands at the beginning of every session and as needed throughout
Limiting enrollment to keep fewer people in the office at one time
Cleaning and sanitizing toys and therapy rooms and shared spaces after each session
Requiring masks or face shields be worn while in the office
Recent addition of air purifiers in each therapy room as well as the large open space
We encourage families to be proactive and to reinforce the importance of hand-washing, physical distancing and face coverings to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
How you can help:
Screen for symptoms daily prior to arriving at the office: Daily Home Screening Chart
If a member of your household tests positive for Covid-19 or is awaiting test results, please keep your child at home and notify the office
If your child has any symptoms associated with the coronavirus, make sure they stay home and get tested if necessary. Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for a minimum of 10 days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement in other symptoms. ** Keep children home when they are sick.**
Ensure your family is adhering to health and hygiene practices from the California Department of Public Health and the Orange County Health Care Agency to reduce the spread of COVID-19
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue and clean your hands immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve, not your hands, to cover coughs and sneezes.
Limit close contact with people who are sick, and avoid sharing food, drinks, or utensils.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
