WHAT TO EXPECT AT RYTHER DURING COVID-19
*This is up to date as of 3/24/23
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:
At Ryther two parents or caregivers may accompany a client to their appointment. It is strongly encouraged that siblings and friends do not accompany clients.
Beginning April 3rd masks will no longer be required in health care facilities in Washington State. Masks will become optional at Ryther as of April 3. Please alert your Ryther clinician if you have concerns or would like your clinician to wear a mask during individual sessions.
The center-building lobby is now open. Upon arrival to the Ryther campus, please check-in with the front desk. If your child develops a new illness (for example, fever, cough, or runny nose), has tested positive for COVID-19 or has been exposed to COVID-19 in the past week, please contact your therapist prior to your scheduled appointment to discuss doing a virtual appointment. Front desk: 206.525.5050
Screening for Staff and Faculty:
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 part of our response to COVID-19 our therapists and scheduling will work with families and clients who have to reschedule appointments due to symptoms.
