As we navigate this public health crisis, Kinera Foundation is committed to being a valuable resource for families of children, teens and adults with disabilities and special health care needs.
Updated March 2021
In-Office Occupational Therapy: Currently, our office is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with an abbreviated schedule and we are offering in-person occupational therapy on those days in our 2 Therapy Gyms. The following precautions are being taken to protect the visitors, patients and staff:
COVID-19 Health Screening is completed via telephone, with a Kinera staff member, upon arrival for appointment.
Parents and children are met outside the facility upon arrival and completion of Health Screening.
All parents and children must utilize the hand sanitizing station prior to entering the building.
A Kinera staff member will take the child's temperature (and parent's temperature, if accompanying child). Anyone with a temperature greater than 100.4 will not be permitted access in the building; appointment will need to be rescheduled.
All children and staff will be required to wear a face mask (2 years and older). If the child/patient doesn't have one, one will be provided for them.
Parents are encouraged to wait outside for the duration of the child's appointment. However, if they need to be in the building for any reason, a staff member will take their temperature and they are also required to must wear a mask.
Shoes must be left at the door.
Any objects that have been in the child's mouth will be removed and taken out of the rotation after their appointment and disinfected.
There is a 15-min block between appointments for cleaning and sanitizing gym equipment, floors, restrooms (Does not apply to sibling appointments).
