Updated March 3, 2022: Due to low COVID-19 levels within the Berks County community and in following current CDC guidelines, wearing a mask within common areas of our facilities is strongly encouraged but no longer required. However, masks may be required to be worn during sessions or group at your provider’s discretion. If you are not feeling well or have suspected or confirmed exposure, do not come in the building and please reschedule your appointment by calling (610) 374-4963. Face-to-face sessions continue and, if eligible, telehealth options remain available at this time. If you have a scheduled telehealth appointment, please arrange for child care during your session time. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding with the ever-changing situation.
