APA: COVID-19: When is it OK to Resume In-Person Services?

Posted: May 19, 2020


Some states are lifting stay-at-home orders. Here are some factors to consider before reopening your office.


COVID-19: When is it OK to resume in-person services?

 

As states begin to lift “safer-at-home” and “stay-at-home” orders, some private practitioners may wonder if it’s OK to return to providing in-person services. If feasible, APA recommends that practitioners providing routine outpatient care continue to use telehealth as much as possible to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission. However, when the time comes to resume in-person sessions, take these steps before opening your office to patient care.

 

 

Note: Before resuming face-to-face visits, psychologists should first check state and local orders to find out whether in-person services are advised. For example, an order may limit visits to emergency situations only. See APA’s 50-state guidance on executive orders and telehealth policies.
