COVID-19: Schreiber reminds families to be safe over Thanksgiving
Based on guidelines issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Health on Nov. 20, residents who travel outside of Pennsylvania are asked to:
- Have a COVID test and quarantine until negative results are obtained
- In lieu of a test, quarantine for 14 days from return to Pennsylvania
We ask if you plan to travel to a setting where you may likely be exposed to COVID, even within the state, please inform your therapist ahead of time and plan to change your therapy sessions to virtual or cancel for the recommended two weeks from the date of your return home. To adjust your therapy appointment, contact our Scheduling Department at 717-393-0425 option 5. Thank you for your cooperation as we do our best to protect our staff and your families.
COVID-19: Schreiber adjusts to Green Phase starting June 29
Gov. Tom Wolf ordered Lancaster County into the Green Phase of COVID-19 remediation effective June 26. To respond to that and to address some issues that have developed with summer weather upon us, we wanted to let you know about some changes to visitor processes that will begin Monday, June 29.
Entering and exiting the building. Families and other visitors to the center can park on either side of our main building and will be able to leave the building through the exit that is nearest their vehicle. If you parked in the east side lot (closest to Homestead Village), you can exit through the main entrance, being mindful of social distancing with those entering the building. If you parked in the west side lot (closest to the therapy wing and Good Drive), you can continue to exit through the therapy wing doors.
Circle of Friends families. One parent will be permitted to accompany their child or children to their rooms in the morning and to pick them up at the end of the day. Again, we ask visitors inside the building to be mindful of social distancing at all times.
Therapy visits. A parent bringing a child in for a therapy session may bring up to two siblings with her to the appointment. The siblings must be supervised and stay with the parent at all times; we cannot allow children to roam the hallways unattended. Also, we will now be able to provide seating outside of therapy rooms for parents to use during visits. The seats will be spaced appropriately to maintain safe social distancing and will be plastic so they can be cleaned regularly.
These guidelines remain in place
- Everyone will continue to be screened outside the front entrance.
- Masks will be required to enter the building, with the exception of children who can’t tolerate them.
- Schreiber staff will continue our cleaning routine after visitors and in child care classrooms.
- We will continue to emphasize hand washing and sanitizing before and after using facilities in the center.
- If you or anyone in your family feel ill, please stay home.
Thank you for your attention and cooperation. Please continue to stay safe.
COVID-19: In-person therapy services resume May 18
Schreiber gradually will re-open the Center for therapy services starting Monday, May 18. We will offer limited appointments so that we can adhere to the public health and limited gatherings guidelines provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With those in mind, we have a few policies that will need to be followed to maintain the health and safety of you, your child and our staff.
- All people entering the center (staff, families, children) must enter through the main front entrance, and each person will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter.
- We ask that you approach the front entrance for screening 5 minutes before your appointment time.
- We ask that only one adult escort your child.
- We ask that siblings not be brought into the building or onto the playground.
- We expect everyone to wear a mask while in the building; if you don’t have one we will provide you with one. You can find resources here and here to help you and your child with masks.
- If anyone in your home has any symptoms of a viral illness, including a fever or cough, please stay home.
Due to the limited number of people allowed in the center, the appointment time you are offered may not be with your current therapist or at your regular appointment time. We will only be able to offer one service for each child per day. If your child receives more than one type of therapy, you will have to come on different days. If you only want to receive one therapy during this time, please let us know which therapy you prefer. If your child is currently receiving services via teletherapy, you may continue with that until we return to a wider schedule of in-person appointments at the center.
If your child’s insurance information has changed since he or she was last here, please let us know when you call to schedule.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to come into the center when we re-open, or if you would prefer to continue with teletherapy sessions by contacting Jen Bachman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-393-0425, ext. 158. We look forward to being able to serve you and the many other families that rely on Schreiber. And we appreciate your patience and cooperation.
COVID-19: Telehealth services expand
Thanks to evolving approvals from area insurance providers, Schreiber’s ability to providCOVIe telehealth services to current Schreiber families has expanded. If you currently receive services at Schreiber and would be interested in exploring telehealth services, please contact Jen Bachman at 717-393-0425 ext. 158 or email@example.com.
Schreiber is also working with area health care providers to offer what is considered medically necessary occupational, physical or speech-language therapy. We will be contacting those families individually as we receive the referrals to set up initial evaluations and begin providing therapy at Schreiber as soon as possible.
