COVID-19 Policy for In-Person Evaluations and Treatment

UPDATED May 14, 2021

In accordance with Executive Order 215, RTS will make the following changes to our mask wearing protocols in our office and waiting room policies effective immediately: 

  • All fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear a mask inside the RTS office.  
  • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are expected to follow mask wearing requirements per NCDHHS.
  • Staff, patients and parents are welcome to continue wearing a mask in the office if they feel more comfortable doing so.
  • A mask for the child during therapy evaluations and sessions will be at the discretion of the therapist and the parent(s) of the child.
  • Our waiting room will be open for one parent and one sibling of the patient to utilize during their child’s session.   Parents also have the option to into the session with their child or wait outside in their car.  
Please note that preschools and daycares will still require masks for children and adults in accordance with the Executive Order.   When seeing patients in homes, the therapist and the parent(s) may decide together what everyone is comfortable with in regards to masks. 
At RTS we will continue to follow the latest CDC and NDHHS guidelines. We will continue to offer telehealth services as an alternative at this time.  Coverage is based on individual insurance plan guidelines.  


We will continue to update this policy as we move through the different phases set by the state. Thank you for your cooperation during this time. We look forward to working with your child.
