Staying Healthy in a Pandemic
March 13, 2020
At Prestera Center, the health and safety of our visitors, clients and employees remains our highest priority. We continue to closely monitor developments with COVID-19 or "the Corona virus" and continue to reduce risks to our 650 employees, their families, our 20,000 clients and their families. Prestera Center locations will remain open to provide services as normally as possible unless directed otherwise by local, state and/or federal health officials. In the event that services have to be reduced, a new notification will appear on this website.
Please watch out for yourself during this pandemic. Use your time to prepare and not to panic. Take everyday precautions that include: washing your hands frequently; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; staying home when you are sick; covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash; cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces; and being prepared for potential changes to your usual routine. Call your medical doctor if you develop a fever, shortness of breath and/or an uncontrollable cough. Avoid crowds. Practice "social distancing" with other people - stay at least 6 feet away from others and stay away from anyone who is sick. The more we all are successful at these practices, the more the virus will be contained and controlled and reduced.
Psychiatric emergency on-call services are always available by calling 1-800-642-3434. Be kind to others and most importantly, be kind to yourself. Good health is truly priceless!
