COVID-19 Update and Information

Dear Clients,

As we begin to see more news about the COVID – 19, the Krist Samaritan Counseling Center would like to inform you about what we’re doing to protect the health and safety of our staff members and clients, given that everyone’s well-being is our number one concern. At this time, we are not closing our office; however, we are closely monitoring the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, including monitoring CDC and Texas Department of State health services guidelines.

We strive to provide a clean and safe environment for our clients and staff. With the given circumstances, we are taking extra cleaning measures throughout the day to ensure your safety. Our daily cleaning regime will include a disinfecting program for frequent touched services such as countertops, door handles, waiting room and bathroom surfaces. We have provided hand sanitizers in our waiting room, are encouraging our staff to implement social distancing and to also avoid shaking hands.

We are asking that our staff members stay home if they feel ill.  We would also like to ask all our clients to please stay home if they are feeling ill, have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have traveled to an affected area. For your safety, if you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 or any other contagious illness, please call the Krist Samaritan Center at 281-480-7554 to reschedule your appointment or to inquire about any other possible counseling options available to you. Your health and well-being are of great importance to us and we want to continue to support you in any way we can.

Thank you,
