In light of the current concerns about COVID-19, I thought I'd let you know all the steps I'm taking to help keep everyone healthy and safe in our sessions. By following a combination of CDC recommendations and common sense practices, I am committed to helping reduce the likelihood of community spread.
For my clients with sessions at one of the LifeWorks offices: we are using CDC and EPA-recommended anti-viral disinfectants to wipe down all surfaces, door-knobs, keyboards, mice, etc. before and throughout each session. For an extra layer of protection, we will also provide ample access to 99.99% anti-viral disinfectant wipes. Students are invited to disinfect mice and keyboards before each use (similar to how people wipe down grocery cart handles before going shopping).
In addition to these steps, we have also invested in multiple high quality anti-viral HEPA rated air filters. These filters remove 99.99% of bacteria and viruses from the air, which will, of course, help greatly reduce the spread of all germs going forward.
Finally, we (fortunately) have a generous supply of hand sanitizer at both offices and have placed bottles of 99.99% alcohol-based sanitizer throughout. Students are encouraged to both wash their hands and use hand sanitizer as often as they see fit.
For my clients with on-campus sessions at Bay Area schools: I will have hand sanitizer and anti-viral disinfectant wipes on hand during our sessions. If at some point schools close and move into virtual school mode, I will provide remote tutoring via a video conferencing platform. More details on this will be provided if necessary.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. I hope that you and your families stay healthy.
