Updated January 11, 2022: Protecting clients and staff continues to be our highest priority. We are once again requesting exposure screenings at the door and, due to the size of our therapy rooms, hallways and waiting areas, continue to require masks be worn by everyone upon entering Family Guidance Center suites. Above all else, we ask that anyone entering our facilities continues to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. 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 have resumed on a limited basis and 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.
