CBPS Policies Related to COVID-19
In response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, CBPS is currently providing most services by telehealth. At present, expert guidance encourages us to continue to provide most services by telehealth rather than in-person. We take seriously our responsibility to set our COVID-19-related policies–including any policies regarding whether or not to provide in-person care–based not on politics or personal opinions, but on guidance from pertinent federal, state, and local authorities and from professional, legal, and healthcare experts. We are engaged in the process of a gradual return to providing routine in-person care, and will update this website when routine in-person care becomes available.
Coping with stress during Covid-19
To manage stress, it helps to get 8 or more hours of sleep each night, exercise daily, take time to relax, limit work hours, limit electronic media, keep regular mealtimes, eat healthy foods, stay hydrated, talk to supportive people, spend time with loved ones and pets, spend time in nature, express yourself creatively (such as in art, music, dance, cooking, crafts, or home projects), and meditate or pray.
