NWCSB Statement Regarding COVID 19
With the declaration of a national state of emergency by the President, the declaration of a state of emergency by the Governor of Virginia and the closing of Virginia schools, NWCSB has been making significant changes to the methods by which services are provided to our clients and our operating procedures:
Effective immediately we are suspending until further notice all program activities at the following:
- Sunshine House
- Our Family
- The Peer Center at Amherst
- The Warren County Resource Center
As a result of moving the majority of our outpatient services from face to face interactions to a “Telemedicine” model during this COVID-19 State of Emergency, as of Wednesday, April 22nd the following clinic schedules will be in place:
Winchester Clinic (Winchester) will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Warren County Clinic (Front Royal) will be open on Tuesday and Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Shenandoah County Clinic (Woodstock) will be open on Monday and Wednesday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Page County Clinic (Luray) will be open on Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
SAME DAY ACCESS: The walk-in clinic will be closed until further notice. A lengthier closure may be necessary as we continue to monitor the community implications of the COVID-19. Please call 540-667-8888 for updates. Individuals seeking admission for services with NWCSB may call 540-667-8888; option 1, to leave a message. Your call will be returned to schedule an assessment. All new intake assessments will be completed via telehealth, through the use of video conferencing or by telephone. See this document for more information
All group therapy sessions (clients) will be cancelled during this COVID-19 event. Individual therapy sessions will continue with most cases utilizing a telephone or a virtual session.
(This does not include individual medical appointments)
All clients, visitors and staff will be required to have their temperature taken by an assigned NW staff. Those individuals with a temperature above the recommended limit will not be granted access and told to contact their primary physician for further instructions.
This will help to reduce any spread of COVID-19.
