Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice
At Boardwalk Recovery Center, the safety of our clients and staff is a priority every day. Like you, we are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and we would like to assure our clients, staff, visitors and families that we are taking preventative measures and proper precautions according to our Attending Physician, state and local public health regulations and guidelines, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO)
Our goal is to continue preventing the spread of communicable illnesses, and we have implemented the following in response to the recent COVID-19 outbreak:
- A client pre-admission screening for travel, symptomatology, and potential exposure to COVID-19; clients with symptoms must obtain verbal medical clearance prior to admission
- Increased sanitization of all surfaces before, during, and after group sessions and meetings
- Postings of information regarding COVID-19 awareness and prevention
- Notified employees of sick time policies and updated EDD/FMLA benefits, and instructed employees to stay home if they feel ill
- Instructed clients to stay home if they feel ill
- Dispersed handwashing and hand sanitizing guidelines from the CDC and WHO
- Advised clients, staff and visitors to verbally greet one another and practice social distancing (at least 6 feet apart from one another)
- Cancelled on-site 12-step meeting and limited visitors
- Split group sessions wherever possible to ensure group sizes remain small
What you can do to help:
- According to the CDC, washing hands for at least 20 seconds and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth continue to be the best measures to prevent the spread of illness
- Keep a social distance from others (6 feet)
- Avoid large crowd gatherings
- If you have a cough, a fever, or have traveled outside of the country or to any area where there is known spread of COVID-19, please do not visit our facility or any client who currently attends our facility
- Please greet our staff and clients with a smile and avoid shaking hands, hugging or making contact with others
We will continue to monitor the situation and inform you of any changes as we receive updates and guidance from public health officials.
At this time, we plan to continue with normal business hours and client scheduling, and we are prepared to provide telehealth if necessary. As always, our top priority is the health and wellbeing of our community. We will keep you updated on any necessary actions and send our best wishes during this challenging time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
