WHAT TO EXPECT AT RYTHER DURING COVID-19

*This is up to date as of 7/27/22

As Covid-19 continues to affect our community, we are following strict guidelines to keep your in-person visit as safe as possible. Here’s what you need to know about your visit:

 

Visitor restrictions:

At Ryther we recommend that only one parent or caregiver accompany a client to their appointment. However, if two caregivers need to come along, we will allow it at this time. Siblings who are younger than 12 months are also allowed to come along. Siblings of any other age are not allowed to come along, and we do not allow more than two caregivers without an exception.

 

Masking:

Everyone, including staff, clients, families, and visitors are required to wear a mask on Ryther property. Outdoor areas are included. If you do not have your own mask or face covering, one will be provided.

 

COVID Screening:

The center-building lobby is now open.  Upon arrival to the Ryther campus, please check-in with the front desk for a COVID screen (questions regarding signs of illness and COVID exposures). If you prefer to wait in your car or one of the outdoor waiting areas, please let your therapist or the front desk know that you have arrived on campus.  If your child develops a new illness (for example, fever, cough, or runny nose) prior to your scheduled visit, please contact your therapist to discuss doing a virtual appointment. Front desk: 206.525.5050 

 

Daily Screening for Staff and Faculty:

We are screening all of our staff upon entry for signs of illness. If an employee is found to have signs of illness, they are referred to COVID-19 testing and asked to follow our standard work restriction policy as it applies to them.

 

Access to care:

As we continue to strive to decrease the number of COVID-19 cases in our community, we are taking steps to increase in-person visits to our Campus. We are also increasing our telehealth capabilities for our therapists so that we can continue to serve clients for whom a virtual appointment is best. As part of our response to COVID-19 our therapists and scheduling will work with families and clients who had to reschedule appointments due to symptoms.
