Labette Center Continuing Plan for Services

At this time, Labette Center will continue providing services in the same manner as what has been currently taking place. Labette Center will continue to offer telehealth appointments. If clients are unable to attend through a telehealth appointment, Labette Center is able to offer the use of a “Zoom Room” where equipment will be provided to attend telehealth appointments from a space designated inside the facility. Facility doors will remain locked and individuals who will be entering the building will be directed to call the office at 620-421-3770 to be admitted into the building. All individuals entering the building will be asked a series of questions regarding their current health and have their temperature taken. Masks should be worn unless the individual is unable to due to medical reasons. If the individual does not have a mask one will be available at the front desk.


As per the current guidelines in place at Labette Center, staff will continue to provide case management services in the same manner they have been. Children’s psychosocial program, Navigator’s began on June 8th and will continue to be provided in the same fashion as previously determined. In addition, Labette Center will require youth in the summer Navigators program wear masks while indoors. Staff in the Navigator’s program will continue to wear masks while indoors as well
