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. Everyone, including clients and staff (regardless of vaccination status), must remain out of the clinic for a minimum of 5 days from symptom onset or positive test. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms have resolved and you have not had a fever for 24 without the use of fever-reducing medication, you may return to NAPA after 5 days. 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 are in the group below, we ask you to remain out of the clinic for 72 hours post close contact exposure and to receive a negative COVID-19 test prior to returning to NAPA. You will need to continue to wear a mask around others for a total of 10 days, and if you are unable to do this, you will need to remain out of the clinic for 5 days from receiving the positive test result or symptom onset and provide a negative COVID-19 test result prior to returning to the clinic. If you are unable to obtain a test and can not wear a mask, you must remain out of the clinic for 10 days from receiving the positive test result or symptom onset.
– You have received the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months OR
– You have completed the primary series of J&J vaccine within the last 2 months OR
– You have received a booster shot
If you are not in the group above, you will be required to remain out of the clinic for 5 days from receiving the positive test result or symptom onset and provide a negative test result prior to returning.
*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.
If you plan to travel out of state or internationally to one of our facilities, COVID-19 testing may be required. Please contact us immediately for more information regarding our travel policy.
