COVID-19 Response: WestBridge continues to provide safe, high-quality services to our current participants and families, and when an opening is available, accepts new admissions into our Residential and ACT programs while referencing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS) guidelines.
Health and safety remain our highest priorities. This is the rationale for the practices we’ve implemented and steps we’ve taken since the beginning of our response to COVID-19.
- We have enhanced our residential admission process and adjusted our capacity in order to support quarantine and social distancing protocols.
- We have also enhanced our ACT admissions process to screen for and support quarantine around COVID-19.
- We provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to staff and participants and continuously monitor our inventory.
- Every individual is screened for symptoms and risk factors prior to or upon entry into a WestBridge building and only necessary vendors and visitors are permitted on the premises.
- We have established maximum capacities for each room and area in our administrative and ACT offices to ensure practicing proper social distancing of at least 6 feet.
- We have added large capacity air purifiers.
- We have established increased cleaning protocols and always support proper hand hygiene.
- We have implemented virtual programing where clinically appropriate.
- We gather input from families, participants, staff and community providers, listening carefully for and responding to concerns.
As part of our effort to keep the community healthy during COVID-19, our protocols and guidelines are frequently updated and changed in reference to guidelines from the CDC, NH DHHS and local Public Health directives.
We will continue to provide updates as this pandemic and situations unfold.
