Keeping you informed on our COVID-19 guidelines
At New York Center for Living we share concerns with you and your family for all of our mutual safety and wellbeing during this COVID-19 crisis. We are taking all precautionary measures that are in compliance with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York State Department of Health (DOH) and New York State Addiction Services (OASAS).
We are therefore establishing a firm boundary with respect to our regulatory b guidelines that apply equally to staff as well as clients. We are also following guidelines for sanitizing our facility and complying with personal hygiene recommendations.
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, we ask that do not attend NYCFL until you receive medical clearance.
1. Have you traveled to a country for which the CDC has issued a Level 2 or 3 travel designation within the last 14 days?
2. Have you had contact with any Persons Under Investigation (PUIs) for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, OR with anyone with known COVID-19?
3. Do you have any symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever, or shortness of breath)?
We ask that if you have been made aware of the fact that you have COVID-19 or believe you have been in contact with someone who does that you notify NYCFL ASAP so that we can take the necessary precautions to protect all of our clients and staff.
Here is the criteria for discontinuation of quarantines for individuals with COVID-19. Criteria for discontinuation of quarantine of patients with COVID-19
In the event of a temporary closure of NYCFL or conversely, if you are being advised to quarantine then we have taken measures to provide for continuity of care via ZOOM (telemedicine). This will enable us to continue having individual and family sessions as well as proceed with our case coordination through team meetings. We are providing you with instructions as well as a document to sign to utilize telemedicine. Please return the attached document to us ASAP.
Thank you for your cooperation.
We will keep you updated as we receive further information.
