 OBH Updates for Face-to-Face ServicesHope Center / Mobile Crisis Team Job Description  

As Colorado is in a safer-at-home phase, we wanted to provide updated guidance for providers. Programs may resume face-to-face services provided they take necessary health and safety precautions. OBH recommends following this protocol to screen clients for COVID-19 symptoms; disinfecting facilities regularly; and maintaining at least six feet of space between clients and staff per CDC and CDPHE guidelines. Clients and staff should wear masks at all times. If providers cannot make these accommodations, programs should still use telehealth.
