The Stixrud Group: COVID-19 Update We have been open for in-person, face-to-face evaluations since June, 2020! As of February 12, every employee of the Stixrud Group has received both doses of the Covid vaccine! Our testing model: The majority of our clinicians are using a hybrid model of in-person testing and tele-health interviews and feedback sessions for most clients. This allows us to decrease in-person interaction. Covid-19 precautions in the office: The Stixrud Group follows guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We begin each day by staggering the arrival of our in-person clients, to minimize exposure between families. We will ask you to call the front desk when you park, and you will be instructed to come up to the office or, possibly, to wait a few minutes. Parents of very young children, or clients who need extra help, are usually able to stay in our (spacious) waiting room, but we ask all other parents to find another place to wait so that we are not overcrowded. When you arrive, your clinician will take the client’s temperature, as well as his/her own, and screen for COVID-19 symptoms. Every office has been arranged so that the psychologist or psychology associate and the client are sitting at least 6 feet apart for the majority of the testing, there is a plexiglass barrier on every desk, and every room has at least one HEPA-certified air filtering machine. Finally, all employees, clients, and families are required to wear masks at all times, including in the waiting room.
