safeguard measures!

Eyas Landing Pods

We’ve separated clients into therapy pods to limit contact and lessen potential exposure. Each of our therapy pods is a designated group formed by therapists and clients. Our Merlin program, private clients, and summer camp are all sorted into pods.

Eyas Landing Vaccine Policy

99% of our staff are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. We require weekly tests for any employees that are not fully vaccinated.

Notification System

Notification System

Our notification system has been approved by the Illinois Department of Health and is designed to keep
you up-to-date on the latest information on COVID-19 should anyone test positive here at Eyas Landing.

Orange alert notifications will be sent to any staff or client that has been identified as having less than 6 feet and more than 15 minutes of exposure to the positive individual. Staff members and clients identified via contact tracing as directly exposed will be contacted and asked to quarantine per CDC guidelines.

Additional Procedures

  • All guidelines and requirements set forth by the IDH will be followed and communicated to staff and clients. Staff and client’s health will be monitored daily, with strict enforcement of our illness policy.
  • Staff or clients who present with 1+ symptoms within 10 days of a recent Alert will be asked to present a negative COVID-19 test to return on-site.
  • If a staff or client experiences 2+ symptoms of COVID-19 they may be asked to present a negative COVID-19 test to return on-site.
  • CDC guidelines will be followed to determine quarantine requirements for vaccinated and unvaccinated staff and clients.
  • Vaccinated staff and cients who are exposed to COVID-19 are not required to quarantine as long as they remain symptom free. We do require a test within 3-5 days from exposure.
  • Unvaccinated clients with siblings who have been exposed to COVID-19 will be asked to quarantine per CDC guidelines and will be asked to present a negative COVID-19 test to return on-site.
  • Virtual therapy sessions will be available during quarantine periods.

Virtual Therapy

We understand that you may remain cautious about interacting with others while so much remains uncertain about COVID-19. For you, we offer virtual therapy, utilizing a personal HIPPA compliant video conference platform to provide face-to-face screenings, evaluations, and therapy in your home. Video conferencing sessions are conveniently scheduled around your family’s routine to best support your family in the home environment.

Summer Camp

We’ve taken several safety measures for our therapeutic summer camp:

  • Implemented pods to ensure campers and staff interact with a small group
  • Rented 2 additional units in the building complex so our campers can safely spread out
  • Hired additional custodial staff for the expanded space
  • Increased cleaning schedule
  • Provided masks to all staff

Test-to-stay Protocol

Test-to-stay Protocol

We are now offering a Test-To-Stay option — a process created by the IDPH to help children safely stay in the classroom and other programming — allowing unvaccinated individuals who were exposed to COVID-19 while masked to remain on-site so long as they don’t have symptoms, they wear a mask well, and they test on days 1, 3, 5, and 7 after exposure. We are in the process of acquiring rapid and PCR testing to be available on-site for Test-to-Stay eligible clients.
To qualify for the Test-to-Stay option, individuals must have been masked for the entire time they were exposed. To track possible exposure, we’ve added mask tolerance tracking for each session to our daily reports. We are committed to increasing children’s mask tolerance and are working to help them become comfortable wearing a mask at all times they are around others – for their protection and to protect those around them.
We have created the flow chart below to help clarify our Test-to-Stay COVID-19 options.
