Essential Reminders

  • Frequent hand washing, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve, and refraining from touching your eyes, nose or mouth are the best deterrents to stop the spread of the virus.
  • No Visitors, Tours, or Non-Essential Personnel shall be allowed at any company facility.
  • No group activities that involve close physical contact or sharing of items.
  • Actively monitor all persons daily for changes in their health – be acutely aware of fever or respiratory symptoms.
  • Both staff and recipients should contact their primary care physician immediately if they do not feel well.
  • Staff and recipients that feel sick are not to report to their program, or assigned shift.
  • Notify your supervisor immediately if you or your recipient is ill, and follow the guidelines provided for self-quarantine.
  • Contact your QP or the Crisis Line for help right away if you have questions.

Remember your thoughtful decision could prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and potential danger to the lives of those in high risk categories. It will also help ensure minimal disruption to the livelihood of our workforce.
