BCA COVID-19 Response

  • Travel Policy - BCA asks that employees and clients who are traveling out of state, take appropriate precautions and
    monitor for changes in their health upon return. You should refer to CDC travel recommendations based on where you are traveling. Domestic Travel During COVID-19 | CDC International Travel During COVID-19 | CDC

  •  BCA will continue to waive no-show fees for illness only, at this time. If you decide to return for center-based treatment, you will be expected to attend your assigned schedule. Absences due to illness will continue to be waived, but proper documentation and notice is required. Cancellations for vacations, dental or other non-emergency medical treatment will result in no-show fees. If you request BCA staff to engage in Telehealth with outside providers (ex: OT, PT, etc.), while your child is in our care, no show fees will be applied for that time. If your child is absent for any other reason than illness, no show fees will be applied. Medicaid clients although exempt from no-show fees will still need proper medical documentation to return to center based services after illness.

  • Health Checks: Temperature Scans for staff and clients will continue, however BCA will cease documentation.
    Parents/Caregivers and staff will no longer have to complete the health attestation; however, it is expected of everyone
    that they disclose any changes in their health and act accordingly.

  • Temperature Scan upon arrival
     

  • Employees and Clients must clean hands with provided hand sanitizer upon arrival.

  • Employees must wear proper PPE, provided by BCA, including anti-microbial face masks, before entering building.

Unvaccinated parents and​ caregivers must continue to wear their masks, always. Please be mindful of others and keep your distance when picking up and dropping off, giving each other the recommended minimum of 3 feet of space.

      since symptoms first appeared, 24 hours with no fever (w/o use of fever reducing meds) and other COVID symptoms are improving. Once all 3 of these are met, they can return and do not need a negative test.

 

  • If an employee or client tests positive and is asymptomatic they will be asked to quarantine for 10 days from the positive test.

  • Employees or clients who need to be tested for COVID-19, will have the option of acquiring a self-administered test
    kit from BCA provided by Solaris Labs. Follow directions on test kit and drop off at the address provided, test

      staff member may return to work so long as they are not living with an infected person.
      o Fully-vaccinated employees who have been exposed to COVID-19 should follow the guidelines set out
      below.

  • If staff cannot find a testing site that can guarantee results within 48-hours, then they will be asked to
    utilize the self-administered test kit.
