Information on the Coronavirus Disease 2019

As the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to spread, leaving concern and worry in its wake, we offer this page as a resource for members, registrants, and the play therapy community at large.  Of particular importance, our information on methods and tips to keep your playroom clean is a must.

APT looks to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) for information on prevention, symptoms, treatment, and next steps. A list of resources are included below for your convenience.  These are meant to augment your information regarding the COVID-19 and is not an exhaustive list on this topic nor should it be as a substitution for advice provided directly by the CDC, WHO, or your medical doctor.

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread across our nation, play therapists are turning to technology as an avenue for service delivery that is consistent with state and federal orders for social distancing AND compliant with HIPPA/ethical mandates.
