CTC’s Illness Policy
To maintain a healthy environment and prevent the spread of illness including COVID-19, please adhere to our existing policy regarding illness and cancel your appointment if your child is not feeling well. Please call us as soon as possible to cancel if you notice any of the following:
- Fever (temperature of 100ºF or above within the past 24 hours)
- Sore throat
- Irritability, lethargy, or loss of appetite.
- Diarrhea or vomiting repeated within 24 hours.
- Rash (body rash, heat rash or an allergic reaction), especially if accompanied by a fever.
- Conjunctivitis (“pink eye”) or mucus draining from the eyes.
- Lice or scabies (children must be free from skin infestations before services resume).
Please notify your therapist and/or teacher if your child or other members of your household come down with a highly contagious illness. We will notify other families who may have been exposed.
Help Prevent the Spread of Viruses
Good health habits help prevent the spread of illness. We reinforce these habits with the families and children we serve, and ask that you reinforce them at home:
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available.
- Cough into a tissue or your elbow (not your hand), then throw tissue away and wash hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick and stay home when you are sick.
- Keep students home if running a temperature or they report not feeling well, appear weak or ill.
- Consult your health care provider if you or your child has health conditions that put you at increased risk.
