Our COVID-19 Safety Protocols

COVID-19 Safety

Providing a safe and nurturing environment where our members can engage in fun and meaningful activities to enhance their recovery remains a top priority for the Thomas M. Wernert Center. We are committed to keeping our members and staff safe and healthy.

Currently, TMWC is open for members by appointment only Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The following guidelines will be in effect until further notice. We will review frequently and adjusted as needed. Please be patient, supportive, and understanding as we attempt to keep everyone safe.

  • Anyone entering the TMWC facilities, including those who have been fully vaccinated, are required to wear a face mask.

  • Members attending programming may bring a personal water bottle. Please eat before your appointment.

  • TMWC will continue to practice social distancing inside our center and on our transportation vehicles.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth, or mask with unwashed hands or after touching surfaces.

  • TMWC Staff will regularly check, sanitize, and wipe down all equipment, counters and high-touch surfaces between appointments.

  • We ask that members continue to use cough and sneeze etiquette (cough or sneeze into your elbow) and practice hand washing hygiene (wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or longer).

  • Please stay home if you are sick or not feeling well or if you believe you have recently been exposed to someone with Covid-19.

  • If there is a potential or confirmed COVID-19 exposure at TMWC, our staff will follow all relevant guidelines and directives from public health authorities. This may include the closure of the facility on a temporary basis.

Please follow us on social media and check back here for the latest updates as conditions change.

We continue to offer support meetings and other programming online, by telephone, and on social media. If you would like to participate, please call us at 419.242.3000 and leave your name and number. We will return your call as soon as possible.
