We are required to do COVID screening when scheduling an appointment and before the appointment.
The novel coronavirus is highly contagious. Symptoms include a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other respiratory issues. If you are experiencing symptoms, please contact your physician and call the Washington State Coronavirus hotline at 1-800-525-0127.
We care about the health of our clients, our staff, and the community, so we urge you to take all the precautions necessary to protect yourselves, including thorough handwashing; coughing into a tissue or your elbow; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; and cleaning frequently touched surfaces.
Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center (HSDC) commits to implementing anti-racist and anti-audist practices based on recommendations from the HSDC Equity Team. We understand the work for Racial & Social Justice is never done and there are always opportunities to do more. It is our responsibility to do all we can to support BIPOC and people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, hard of hearing, and have speech diversity.
We will commence with these commitments immediately and begin with 11 intentional actions, with the help of outside experts from the BIPOC and Deaf communities.
