Essential Workers for travel to work? COVID-19

Alyson Zurek, LICSW 4 years ago in Industry News/Discussion updated by Anissa Jones 4 years ago 1

Hi! Related to being a mental health worker in the midst of the COVID-19 situation...does anyone know if we can get letters from our Board to be considered essential to be able to travel to work to meet with our patients for mental health if they cannot be seen over telehealth?

Hi Alyson, our office printed up cards to put with our ID badges that states: "Name of employee" is a community Mental Health Provider and considered a Tier 1 Emergency Worker under the Governor's Executive Order 20-02, updated on 3/18/2020.

Hope this helps.
