Office Safety Precautions in Effect During the COVID-19 Pandemic
As some in-office therapy resumes, Dr. Katzinger is taking the following precautions to protect her clients and help slow the spread of COVID-19. It is important to note that Dr. Katzinger shares office space with other mental health providers and that, while she will do what she can to minimize her clients' exposure to coronovirus, she does not have control over their policies or actions.
