Dear Families, During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency, California’s Governor Newsom has declared a state of emergency. Additionally, to protect the safety of individuals with compromised immune systems, and those at higher risk of respiratory illness, the Department is directing centers to ensure those individuals temporarily avoid day services outside the home.
Due to this directive, and as many of you have chosen to take this time to focus on staying home and staying healthy.
Your therapy team will be available via phone, fax, or email to answer all you questions and address your concerns. Please feel free to contact the office (714) 826-4957 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Help Prevent the Spread of Viruses Good health habits help prevent the spread of illness. We reinforce these habits with the families and children we serve, and ask that you reinforce them at home: Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available. Cough into a tissue or your elbow (not your hand), then throw tissue away and wash hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid contact with people who are sick and stay home when you are sick. Keep students home if running a temperature or they report not feeling well, appear weak or ill. Consult your health care provider if you or your child has health conditions that put you at increased risk.
