NAPA Center is dedicated to providing direct center-based therapy services while ensuring the safety of our employees, patients, and their families. We have implemented the policies and procedures below and will be continuously monitoring the following resources which have been used to create our internal COVID-19 prevention procedures:
A screening questionnaire must be completed prior to entering the clinic.
We ask you to remain home if you or any member of your household show symptoms of coronavirus, including, but not limited to:
If you or your child have any of the symptoms above, we require one of the following prior to your child returning to in-clinic services:
Positive Test Result
If you, your child, or anybody in your household tests positive for COVID-19, follow the CDC guidelines and consult the guidance of a healthcare physician. If you have been at NAPA within 48 hours of the positive test or symptom onset, please contact a NAPA staff member immediately. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving and you have not had a fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, you may return to NAPA after 5 days but must wear a mask. If you are unable to wear a mask, you must remain out of NAPA for 10 days from symptom onset or positive test.
Close Contact Exposure
If you were exposed to COVID-19 and are up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations OR if you had confirmed COVID-19 within the past 90 days, you do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms. You will need to continue to wear a mask around others for a total of 10 days. If you are unable to wear a mask, you will need to remain out of the clinic for a total of 10 days post-exposure.
If you were exposed to COVID-19 and are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations OR have not had confirmed COVID-19 within the past 90 days we ask you to remain out of the clinic for 5 days post-close contact exposure and to receive a negative COVID-19 test no less than 48 hours post-exposure prior to returning to NAPA. You will need to continue to wear a mask around others for a total of 10 days. If you are unable to wear a mask, you will need to remain out of the clinic for a total of 10 days post-exposure.
If at any time you test positive or develop symptoms during your quarantine period, see above (Positive Test Results).
*Close contact – Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period* starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
Hand hygiene is an important part of the United States response to the international emergence of COVID-19. Practicing hand hygiene, which includes the use of alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) or handwashing, is a simple yet effective way to prevent the spread of pathogens and infections in healthcare settings. CDC recommendations reflect this important role. Staff will wash their hands before and after each treatment session for at least 20 seconds.
Additional alcohol-based hand sanitizer stations are available around the clinic that contain at least 70% alcohol. These stations are available for all individuals in the clinic.
We ask that you join in our safety measures by taking part in the following activities:
