As you are aware, the Coronavirus is an international challenge. We are focusing our efforts to ensure that we are doing all that we can to prevent the spreading of Coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as any flu virus. These measures include:
Continual monitoring of new and current information from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), Commonwealth of Virginia and Fairfax County Health Departments, the Fairfax County Public Schools, and other reliable news sources.
We have intensified our schedule with regards to disinfecting flooring, equipment, and toys children and therapists use throughout the day.
Our attendance policy always allows you to cancel if you or your child is sick without risk of late fees. Please, if you or your child has a fever in the last 24 hours or is coughing, stay home until everyone is well. Please call if you have any questions.
We ask that you have your child wash his / her hands prior to entering a therapy session. Currently, the CDC is not recommending that we make drastic changes to our daily routines. We encourage you to visit the CDC’s website to stay up to date on the latest information.
Tips from the CDC:
- The best prevention is still washing your hands for 20+ seconds frequently throughout the day.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or the crook of your elbow, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Homemade Sanitizing Gel: 1 cup of 91% isopropyl alcohol ½ cup of aloe vera gel (natural or store-bought) 15 drops of tea tree oil (or another antibacterial essential oil like lemongrass, lavender, or eucalyptus)
Note that hand sanitizer should contain at least 60% by volume alcohol. Lower percentage or non alcohol products are not as effective.
