The Early Learning Center (ELC) will reopen its doors for business on Monday, June 15. Temporary business hours for the ELC will be from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
"In order to reopen the ELC, we have enhanced our safety and health measures to help mitigate the potential risk of COVID-19," officials said. "These enhanced safety measures were developed based on the guidance provided by the CDC, as well as other guidelines issued at the state and local levels. All parents and families will receive packets with detailed information regarding our COVID-19 safety measures to protect their children and our staff.
"Developmental Pediatrics and Therapy Services in both our Chattanooga and Nashville locations are now allowing limited in-person services by appointment only.
Walk-ins are currently not available and access to our clinics is only allowed if you have passed our comprehensive screening process, detailed in patient appointment communications. If you have questions or need to schedule an appointment, please call.
"Telehealth services available. We continue to provide medical and therapy services, including applied behavior analysis and home and community-based early intervention therapy, via tele-health during this time.
"Institute leadership, with the guidance of our medical and therapy teams has implemented a plan for precautionary/sanitation protocols, staff training and patient traffic flow measures to protect our patients, families and staff. This is a multi-phased approach to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19. Phase one of this plan has already been executed and all patients, families and staff have been notified or trained. We will announce enhancements to our reintegration plan over the next weeks and months based on the guidance provided by local and state health departments and the CDC."
