Procedures for following CDC and Health Department
When serving as a TRC Chaperone, it is important that you remain aware of current CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 and its variants, as well as any additional Health Department guidelines.
As a TRC Chaperone you won’t be aware of the medical history for each client and, for that reason, it is important to ask if your client prefers that you wear a mask before each interaction. Clients may experience anxiety related to medical appointments, complying with their request to wear a mask is an easy accommodation to eliminate any additional stressors. Listed below are general guidelines to limit the potential of transmission:
Wear a mask when you interact with others.
Limit your in-person interactions with other people as much as possible, particularly when indoors.
Keep space between yourself and others (stay 6 feet away, which is about 2 arm lengths).
Wash your hands often. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Then wash your hands.
Clean high-touch surfaces and objects regularly (for example, daily or after each use) and after you have visitors in your home.
