How CCEA is dealing with COVID-19.
The Counselling Centre of East Algoma has continued to serve our clients throughout the COVID 19 pandemic. While we were unable to meet with our client face to face for a time, we continued to reach our by phone and video when appropriate. As our community moves into phase 3 and more folks are out and about, we want to remind community members about the need to be socially responsible, wear a mask and limit your exposure to large groups of people whether inside or outside.
In an effort to better engage with clients for whom phone and video did not work well, we have begun offering in person counselling and treatment to those clients who we have assessed will be best served in a face to face session. We must however keep the safety of all staff and clients as a top priority, and as such we are diligently working to ensure that social distancing protocols are being followed, and we require that all clients be screened (including non touch temperature checks) prior to entering our offices and wear a mask or face covering while in common areas. We have increased the frequency of cleaning of high touch surfaces and clinical offices are cleaned after every in person appointment. If you are looking to start services or re-engage, please give us a call to see how we can best meet your needs during these unprecedented times.
