All clients of Oceanside Community Services will need to show proof of vaccination OR negative PCR test OR a negative Rapid diagnostic test (RDT) (within 72 hours of scheduled appointment) to be seen in person.
Persons accompanying clients, including parents, case managers, or staff will also need to provide proof of vaccination status (or negative COVID-19 test) in order to enter the building.
In addition, a client who has tested positive for COVID-19 and has completed the 14-day quarantine + 14 additional days, will be able to enter the building with proof of dated positive COVID-19 test result.
Masks, social distancing and screening for symptoms will continue to be required.
We understand the sensitive nature of this new requirement but believe as an agency that it is the most effective way to continue to keep our staff and the community safe and to keep our doors open. Although this is yet another change in our policy, we at Oceanside are committed to prioritizing everyone’s safety while continuing to provide quality services.
If you or anyone in your household are experiencing any signs of COVID-19 such as fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.
OCS is committed to providing the safest environment for our clients and staff by maintaining a strict policy requiring all staff to wear masks and sanitize our offices after each client visit. In addition, we require our clients to also wear masks and report any concerns or recent health issues prior to their appointment.
Please note that aside from Neuropsychological face-to-face testing, all appointments can be done via telehealth.
