Dear TBH Family,

We hope you and your family are continuing to navigate the COVID situation as well as possible.

We are writing to alert you to an additional update to TBH’s Health Screening Policy.

As more of our team members and some client family members have been able to obtain access to the COVID vaccines, questions about the impact on quarantine guidelines have emerged. In addition, the CDC has recently provided new guidance in this area.

As has been our practice throughout the pandemic, we have updated our Health Screening Policy specifically to align with the CDC’s guidelines in this area. Please find it below for your reference. The change has been highlighted for you.

Please continue to monitor your health. If you identify any symptoms, reach out and cancel your scheduled sessions. Please do not allow services to continue if you are exhibiting symptoms, if you have been exposed, or if you meet any of the CDC’s guidelines warranting self-isolation or quarantine.

Thank you, as always, for the opportunity to serve your family.

Ned

Health Screening Policy – Updated 2.22.2021

Health Screening

If any of the above questions are answered in the affirmative and the respondent does not subsequently confirm they have been without symptoms for the required time, have a valid negative test result or meet one of the other criteria for return; immediately ask the individual/s to leave the location and cancel the session.

If the affirmative answer occurs prior to starting a home-based session, please cancel the session before entering the residence. Please report this occurrence to HR at covid@tbh.com and to your supervisor.

An incident report should be filled out for the reporting of confirmed COVID cases.

As noted above, an exception will be made for team members and clients who have a known pre-existing condition which overlaps with a COVID-19 symptom. For example, if a Client has a known symptom of diarrhea due to medication, a family member can fill out a Recurring Pre-existing Symptom Attestation found here and not complete the question in the Health screening further.

If an individual refuses to answer any of the questions or is unable to answer them, please ask them to leave until they can answer all of the questions in the health screening. If needed, please cancel the session.

If all the questions are answered negatively (meaning with a “NO” response ) please proceed with the scheduled session.

Temperature Check

TBH is implementing temperature checks in TBH centers as an additional health & safety precaution due to the larger number of individuals in TBH centers. Temperature checks are not required for in-home sessions because the session is limited to the TBH team member and immediate family.

  1. Immediately check the temperature of any individual who enters a TBH center.
  2. If the temperature of the individual reads above 100.4 F request the individual leave immediately and cancel the session.

If an individual refuses to comply with a temperature check, please ask them to leave until they can do so. If needed, please cancel the session.

Washing Hands

Wash hands with warm water and soap for a minimum of 20 seconds immediately upon entering the center or the residence before starting the sessions and in between sessions. If soap and water are not available and hands are not visibly dirty, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol may be used. Regularly wash hands during the course of the scheduled day.

Face Coverings

TBH requires a facial covering to be worn by TBH team members while performing work related duties in line with local and state guidelines. Team members are eligible for a one-time reimbursement up to $20.00 for the purchase of PPE, if not provided by TBH. Please contact us immediately to submit reimbursement.
