Coronavirus Planning & Response

By March 16, 2020Uncategorized

Spurwink considers the health and safety of its clients and staff to be its highest priority. In this rapidly evolving coronavirus pandemic, Spurwink is working closely with the CDC, DHHS, DOE, CDS and other partners to operate in the manner that is safest for all while also providing essential behavioral health services.

Some of the steps we are taking include:

  • Across all of our sites, we are implementing:
    • Telehealth treatment (by both phone and video) to be used by all programs
    • Strict hygiene protocols at all locations
    • Visitor restrictions at residential programs, along with strict hygiene and other protocols, consistent with CMS and CDC guidelines
    • Mandatory remote meetings and work from home (for appropriate positions) to follow social distancing recommendations

We realize that anxiety can be high in these uncertain times.  If you, a loved one, a colleague, or a neighbor needs support, please reach out to The LINK at info@spurwink.org or 888-889-3903, or at www.spurwink.org. Together, we will walk the path ahead.
