We have equipped all of our offices with personal protective equipment for care providers who are assisting clients experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses.
Care providers will not report to work if they have confirmed or suspected COVID-19. They must be fever-free for at least 72 hours and wait 7 days since symptoms first appeared before returning to work.
We have provided our care providers with information regarding virus transmission precautions and we are reinforcing proper procedures for preventing the spread of illness. We will continue to forward information to them as we learn more about the virus.
We have implemented procedures for ensuring anyone entering our offices does not have a fever and we are diligent in sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces and supplies.
We are carefully monitoring the situation and staying up-to-date on recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority, WHO, and CDC.
