COVID UPDATE 06/24/2021:  Like many other medical facilities, COTHUE remains vigilant to ensure the safety of our patients, their families and significant others, and our staff and their families.  Although most states have listed most COVID restrictions, we continue to employ safe practices/COVID precautions in our clinic.  It is crucial given the significant amount of close face-to-face time spent between our staff members and our patients.  As such, COTHUE is still requiring masks for all persons in our clinic including staff members (when interacting with patients), all patients and their family members/significant others.  We are also still checking temperatures of all aforementioned parties and completing COVID questionnaires with new patients.  Hand washing is also required of patients and staff upon arrival to the clinic and as appropriate thereafter.  We are practicing social distancing where/when we can (which can be hard to do in this setting as it is a lot of "hands-on").


The clinical staff is still disinfecting all applicable equipment.  COTHUE is still operating with a decreased patient census (we are keeping the number of persons in the clinic and waiting room down from pre-COVID levels).  We understand the EVERYBODY has COVID fatigue (including the staff) and are ready to return back to "normal".  However, given that there are still new cases recorded everyday, we feel that it is imperative to err on the side of caution for the well-being of us all.  Thank you for your patience!!!!


****STUDENTS LOOKING FOR OBSERVATION/VOLUNTEER HOURS - Unfortunately we have not resumed hosting students that are looking to fulfill OT observation hour requirements at this time.  We are still acting as a Fieldwork site for several universities.  We hope to resume student observation as soon as appropriate/possible.  Thank you for your understanding.
