Reopening Plan Updates

This page was last updated on May 26, 2020 at 2:07pm

As the Oregon state government eases restrictions on in-person services for healthcare providers, the Children’s Program is in the process of creating our re-opening plan.  

We are proceeding cautiously to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients and staff. It is a complex endeavor given the large number of families who visited on a daily basis (pre-pandemic) and the limits of our waiting room space.  

For now, please assume that all counseling/therapy & MD appointments scheduled through June 2020 will follow Virtual Clinic proceduresOur goal is to have a plan determined by mid-May.  We hope to reintroduce in-person visits in several gradual phases on a clinician-by-clinician, case-by-case basis. We appreciate your patience during this time, and we will reach out to you when we have finalized our reopening plans.

FAQs About Reopening In-Person Services

Each clinician is reviewing each client's individual evaluation needs on a case-by-case basis. Generally, evaluations cannot be conducted via telehealth, and require the clinician to closely observe & supervise the child in a way that makes social distancing impossible. We are working to put procedures and plans in place. We thank you in advance for your patience--we will contact you when we are ready to reschedule.
