Lice Clinics of America (LCA) franchisees in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware have announced they are joining forces to help their communities during this time of social distancing and self-isolation. Starting immediately, they are offering free head lice treatment kits to first responders and their families in self-quarantine who cannot come into the clinics due to the ‘six feet’ social-distancing rule for COVID-19.
“We want to support our community and especially our first responders in this crazy time,” says CJ Scharfenstein, who manages New Jersey clinics in Metuchen, Hamilton Township and Marlton, and Doylestown, Pennsylvania. “They’re on the front lines keeping our community safe and the last thing they need is the added stress of a head lice infestation at home.”
Each kit includes a 4 oz. bottle of a dimethicone-based solution, a lice comb, and instructions. Dedicated telehealth video conferencing is also offered free of charge for those wanting face-to-face support. Kits are available for one or two-person treatments. Families can order a kit for contactless curbside pickup at a clinic by calling their nearest clinic. Like and follow our Facebook page today so we are notified to send you our online signup form!
“Most first responders can’t work from home, but head lice are still around,” says franchisee Sharon Rizzuto, owner of clinics in Conshohocken, Chadds Ford, and Downingtown, Pennsylvania. “We want to give these workers some measure of relief during this challenging time.”
“Our communities mean the most to us, and in this time of uncertainty and stress, we wanted to be there for them in the best way we know-how,” says franchisee Savanna Mitchell, owner of the Wilmington, Delaware location.
Parents can call any LCA clinic below for questions about head lice treatment and prevention.
