April 1, 2021 Update - Although the state of Arkansas has lifted the mask mandate, we will continue following CDC guidelines which includes masks, temperature checks, and physical distancing.
At Behavioral Health Services of Arkansas, the safety of our clients and team members is of the utmost importance. During times of anxiety and uncertainty we take our role as behavioral health care providers with the utmost seriousness. In an effort to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 virus we will be taking extra precautions.
We are delivering services in person and through telehealth. At this time, in person services are limited and telehealth is encouraged to minimize risk of exposure. Please click here to learn more about telehealth services. For in person services, any client arriving to our clinic will be screened before their appointment. You will be asked the following questions upon arrival:
- Are you having flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath?
- In the last 14 days have you traveled to any areas that have active cases? Where?
- Have you been in close contact with someone confirmed of or is being evaluated for COVID-19?
You will also have your temperature taken. Should your temperature read 100.4 or higher you will not be allowed to enter our facility.
All Behavioral Health Services of Arkansas team members will also be required to have a temperature reading upon arrival. On top of our daily cleaning procedures, we will be adding extra steps to make our routines even more rigorous.
The following precautions have been taken to help minimize the spread of COVID-19:
- Stand-alone air purifiers were purchased for our clinic and school based locations
- Electrostatic sanitizing guns and a sanitizing backpack were purchased for use within the clinic
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and sanitizing materials were stockpiled to ensure a continuous supply of needed and vital items
Thank you for your understanding as we work through this time together. We do not want this time of social distancing to affect your ability to have your mental health services met. Should you have questions or concerns please contact us at 501-954-7470.
