Therapy Suspension – Extended Until April 22, 2020
Dear Walker Scottish Rite Clinic client families,
As a result of the developing coronavirus pandemic, Maryville University has made the difficult decision to suspend all in-person activities until April 22, 2020 including therapy through the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic – a program of Maryville.
This decision was made in consultation with local health officials’ stay-at-home orders, under guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and with our utmost concern for our community’s health and safety as the ultimate determining factor.
The Walker Scottish Rite Clinic and Maryville University staff are working hard to provide access to all support services through other formats, including considerations for teletherapy.
Maryville does not have any known COVID-19 cases at this time, but as the situation evolves, it’s highly likely there will be more confirmed cases in our region. The decision is in line with the CDC’s “social distancing” guidelines and minimizing risk of exposure.
In consideration of restrictions recently announced by St. Louis County and City to stay-at-home and as well as guidance from the CDC to limit gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to postpone all in-person client events through the next eight weeks, including ARTiculate and 52 Club gatherings.
This pandemic has altered our way of life but like past crisis we are confident that working together we will overcome and prevail. Our hearts and prayers go out to people who are infected around the world, and the clients, faculty, staff and each of your families who are impacted in various ways.
Rest assured we are planning for a renewal of in-person therapy programs as soon as possible. We miss seeing you and your children each week.
