Behavior Change Agents and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

In our service based field we are in close contact with children, the beneficiaries and consumers of our services. At BCA, we continue to monitor the medical data as it is released, as well as social and news media discussions to determine how the developing situation may impact our services.

 

We have not only implemented internal guidelines and protocols for our staff and families, but we are also offering best practices to the general public for providing therapy services to children with autism and other medically fragile diagnoses.

 

We encourage all staff to adhere to good hygiene practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases.

All staff members will wear face coverings.

 

Guidelines & Best Practices

  • Stay at home if you are sick and advise others to do the same.

  • Always cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or elbow pit.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and avoid touching others.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and warm water are not available.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (computers, keyboards, desks, etc.).
