In light of the current events surrounding COVID-19, we’d like to share some additional information and reminders with you all. Our goal is to help slow the spread of the virus and keep our employees healthy and safe.
Virtual Medical Visits
In an effort to limit exposure and put less stress on healthcare facilities, we recommend employees take advantage of Virtual Visits, or e-Visits. Most primary care physicians have moved to this model of treatment, so please contact your family doctor for guidance.
Medstar Health (www.medstarhealth.org/mesdstar-health-evisit/) is providing e-Visits free of charge during this pandemic. Most virtual visits take 10-15 minutes, and doctors can also write prescriptions (if needed) for pickup at your local pharmacy.
Returning to Work
Situations are changing quickly, but the latest and greatest is for people diagnosed with COVID-19 (either confirmed by test or based on clinical assessment), they must meet all of the following before coming out of self-quarantine and returning to work:
You have heard all of these many times, but please continue to follow the guidance below in an effort to remain healthy. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed.
We know this is a stressful time for everyone, and encourage you to stay connected to coworkers, friends and family during this uncertainty. Take advantage of technology – use Teams to meet with your coworkers; Facetime with friends and family. We appreciate the fact that we have dedicated, hard working employees that are still focused on getting the job done. We have been fortunate up to this point in that our jobs have remained opened. We know from talking to several of you that being at work right now is the best medicine. Thank you for your hard work and flexibility during this time of uncertainty.
Our priority continues to be to keep our employees safe and our company operational. As more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate with you.
