What precautions are being taken for COVID-19?
In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community, the Sorenson Center is offering many services via telehealth. We also are offering most of our services in-person for those who need to, or prefer to, come into the center for services.
For those who have in-person appointments, we are taking appropriate precautions to protect the safety of our clients and providers. These include:
- Asking anyone who is sick or has been exposed to COVID-19 to stay home
- Requiring all individuals who enter the Sorenson Center to wear a face covering (unless age or health condition make this impossible)
- Asking health screening questions of everyone who enters the Sorenson Center
We also request that when attending an in-person appointment, the client attend alone. For children or clients requiring assistance, one additional person may accompany the client.
If you have questions on these procedures or need to schedule or reschedule an appointment, please call 435.797.4200.
