CP Approach to Shelter-in-Place Orders image

Hi Everyone,

Earlier today six Bay Area counties (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco) implemented a Shelter in Place order restricting access to non-essential services. Since healthcare operations, including mental health services are considered essential, our offices will remain open in those counties. We will, however, be working to move all patients in those offices to telemedicine as quickly as we can. This will take some time to achieve, and our goal is to transition all patients in those offices to virtual visits within a week.

In order to accomplish this, we ask all providers and staff to report as usual tomorrow. If you are unable to come into the office due to childcare or personal health concerns, please reach out to your supervisor or Regional Medical Director to discuss potential accommodations as required.

We are in the process of updating our website to include an announcement to our patients about the switch to telemedicine.
