BAYLOR PSYCHOLOGY CLINIC (BPC) RESPONSE TO COVID-19
In light of news regarding COVID-19, the BPC would like to share precautions aimed at keeping everyone safe and healthy. Baylor Psychology Clinic is carefully monitoring the situation and are taking the following precautions to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 in our community. Thank you in advance for abiding by these guidelines and helping keep our local community healthy!
Due to concerns, the Baylor University has moved all classes online and encouraged remote work schedules to the extent possible. In view of this, because all of our clinicians are students, the BPC will not be physically open due to Campus COVID-19 Precautions. We will not be accepting new clients for services during these times.
Current clients will be contacted and monitored by their clinicians via telephone contact during this period and we have transitioned to telehealth for clients who wish to resume services via this modality. We hope to be back in full on-site operation as soon as possible and will provide updates as we receive them. Our Clinic Voicemail will be monitored during this time, so if it is necessary to leave a message, please feel free to do so at 254-710-2470.
